Giannis Antetokounmpo finished Sunday's loss vs. Houston with 36 points (14-of-25 FGs, 6-of-9 FTs), 18 rebounds and eight assists.
Antetokounmpo battled foul trouble in the Bucks' re-start opener, but made the adjustment today to finish with three fouls in 33 minutes. “[W]henever I come back from the offseason or whenever I come back from a long break, I’m just excited," he said. "I’m just reaching all the time. I try to go for steals. I’m just aggressive. Sometimes, I get out of control, but that’s how I learn." He was magnificent all game and defenses seem powerless to stop him -- they want to make him a jump-shooter but he finds ways to impose his will offensively. He sank two 3-pointers tonight but the Bucks blew an early lead and couldn't generate enough offense late, falling 120-116. Of course, this was just another warmup game for Milwaukee's playoff run.
