The Milwaukee Bucks (42-25) take down the Atlanta Hawks (31-34), 124-115, inside the Fiserv Forum for their sixth consecutive victory.
Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 43 points on 15-of-22 from the field, 12 rebounds and five assists in 37 minutes.
I still do not understand how people put Joel Embiid over Giannis in the MVP race. All of Giannis’ numbers are better and he’s a Defensive Player of the Year candidate.
Giannis now trails Kareem Abdul-Jabbar by just 232 points for the Bucks franchise scoring lead.
This was a very important win for Milwaukee tonight, considering the Miami Heat lost earlier in the night.
The Milwaukee Bucks will start a four game road trip and travel to San Francisco, California to play the Golden State Warriors on Saturday, March 12. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 PM (Central Time) and will be nationally televised on ABC.
