Giannis Antetokounmpo claims he wants to keep putting on incredible performances that he can one day show his children when they are old enough to understand them. On Sunday evening, the two-time MVP added another. The Milwaukee Bucks raced to a 135-110 victory over the struggling New Orleans Pelicans as Antetokounmpo scored 50 points in just 30 minutes of action. In addition to making 3 of 4 three-pointers, Antetokounmpo made 20 of his 26 shots from the field and 7 of his 12 attempts at the foul line.
The Bucks are currently placed 3rd in the Eastern Conference standings and are definitely one of the strongest contenders for the championship this season. In addition to Giannis Antetokounmpo, former Lakers player and legend Magic Johnson is certain that Khris Middleton will play a significant role in the Milwaukee Bucks’ bid for the 2022–23 championship. Speaking on the matter he wrote, “Milwaukee’s championship aspirations depend on a healthy Khris Middleton!”
The Bucks have won four straight games and are unbeaten since Giannis and Middleton returned from their separate injury absences. Although Middleton has played infrequently and off the bench as he gets back into game fitness, Giannis’ presence has undoubtedly been huge. Nevertheless, Middleton has been equally as effective. However, once he is totally healthy, Milwaukee will only become more devastating.
Middleton has only participated in 10 games this season, but he is finally healthy and prepared to perform. The Bucks’ three-point percentage over the past few years has placed them fifth in the whole league. Their overall standing this season is 18th. His ability to take and make threes has been badly missed.
