A little over two months ago, the world discovered that Giannis Antetokounmpo is human. During the FIBA World Championship in China, the Greek faltered. His Greece was not able to reach the quarterfinals. But in the NBA, the story is quite different. His super powers multiply with the Bucks shirt. This time, it happened in front of the Blazers. He signed the fastest triple-double of his career (24 points, 19 rebounds and 15 assists), with record attendance and Milwaukee beat Portland (137-129).
The Greek just needed to reach the middle of the third period to have already secured the triple-double that allowed the Milwaukee team to get the sixth consecutive victory. Antetokounmpo, who also had a triple-double in the opening game of the new season, reached 16 as a professional and the Bucks already have a 14-2 mark.
The base Erick Bledsoe contributed 30 points, as the biggest scorer of the team and the match, and six assists with the Bucks (12-3), who are leading leaders in the Central Division. The Milwaukee team also got their best score at the end of the first half with a partial 72-58.
After scoring 10 points, last Tuesday, in his debut with the Portland Trail Blazers against the New Orleans Pelicans, veteran forward Carmelo Anthony , who continued as a starter contributed 18 points against the Bucks. The contribution of Anthony along with the 37 points of the escort CJ MacCollum, who was the best scorer of the Trail Blazers, did not prevent the third consecutive defeat of the Portland team (5-11).
The game allowed Antetokounmpo to face Anthony again the star against which he debuted as an NBA player on December 18, 2013. Then Antetokounmpo managed 10 points and seven rebounds before being eliminated for personal fouls, while Anthony helped to the triumph of the Knicks at Madison Square Garden by noticing 29 points and being the leader of his team.
