Giannis Antetokounmpo sets 2 new records after epic performance vs. Celtics

Giannis Antetokounmpo Bucks

Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo picked up right where he left off. The Greek Freak led his team to an impressive 119-112 victory against the Boston Celtics in their first game inside the bubble. The reigning MVP finished with another stellar line in the win, and in the process, set two new records in his first game back following a four-month hiatus.

Giannis put up 36 points on 14-of-20 shooting, along with 15 rebounds, seven assists, a steal, a block, and one triple in 32 minutes of action. Rust does not seem to be an issue for a guy like Antetokounmpo.

NBA stats guru Justin Kubatko explained how Giannis’ amazing stat line allowed him to surpass a couple of long-standing records:

Both are pretty self-explanatory on Giannis’ statistical achievements on the evening. What is clear is that the 25-year-old continues to show his dominant form this season. Did this dude really have a four-month layoff?

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the heavy favorite to bag his second consecutive MVP trophy this season. Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James and his amazing campaign has allowed The King to enter the conversation, but in the end, Giannis still remains to be the top bet. Performances such as this one just prove how Antetokounmpo has been playing at a whole ‘nother level this season.

Milwaukee is off on Saturday, but will take the court again on Sunday as they take on the Houston Rockets.
