Giannis Antetokounmpo leads the Bucks against Pistons with triple-double
It was the 20th career triple-double for Antetokounmpo. Jrue Holiday added 21 points for the Bucks in another solid performance after arriving in an offseason trade.
“I knew he was really good, but every day I play with him, I realize how good a person he is, good a teammate he is, and how much better he is than what I thought,” Antetokounmpo said.
Milwaukee beat Detroit 125-115 on Jan. 4 and 130-115 two days later. Making this an even nastier and bitter loss for the side from Detroit. Pistons shot a solid 40% from 3-point range, but the Pistons were just 22 of 57 inside the arc.
Giannis also spoke about James Harden’s trade to Brooklyn Nets and said it was a great acquisition for the Nets, having been able to fetch such a player is always a plus.
Having said that the Bucks would face the in-form Luka Doncic led Dallas Mavericks next.
