With their NAB MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and the perfect record of 30-5 on this season, the Milwaukee Bucks are off to the great season.
But still, Antetokounmpo is really concerned with the finish of the team’s season.
The reigning MVP of the Milwaukee Bucks scored 23 points with 10 rebounds in his comeback after missing 2 games due to his sore back to lead Bucks 123-102 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.
Antetokounmpo is currently the 2nd highest scorer of the league with an average of 30.5 points per game. In this game, he was 8 for 14 from the field along with his 6 assists.
Antetokounmpo said, “We have now won 30 games before January and it is really cool but we can still do much better than this. We need to keep on improving because our ultimate goal is to play late in the season.”
Khris Middleton also helped the Milwaukee Bucks with his 25 points while Eric Bledsoe added in his 15 points in his comeback after missing on 8 team games due to his fractured leg.
Antetokounmpo said of his teammate, Bledsoe, “We really move faster with him beside us. He is like a sports car. He is so fast and we just follow him. It is always good to have him back.”
From the Chicago Bulls’ side, the lead was taken by Zach LaVine who had 19 points while his teammate Coby White and Lauri Markkanen both scored 18 points and Wendell Carter Jr. scoring 10 points with 11 rebounds.
Markkanen said of the loss, “I think that I the 1st half we were there but then in the 2nd half we were not playing our best basketball. Still, we have shown that we can play with anybody but we need to make it good for 48 minutes to actually win these games.”
Up next, Milwaukee Bucks will be hosting a game on Wednesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves while Bulls will host a game on Thursday night against the Utah Jazz.
