The “Greek Freak” has struck again!



Almost a month after setting his points record (55), against Washington, Giannis Antetokounmpo was still very close to beating him, Sunday night against New Orleans. Author of 50 points, the Greek, who will again be one of the two captains at the next All Star Game, allowed Milwaukee to align a fourth victory.

You will pick up some “Greek Freak” again. Giannis Antetokounmpo is once again unstoppable. On January 3, the Greek superstar from Milwaukee started the year 2023 with a cannonball by scoring 55 points against Washington, a new points record for the Bucks mover. Almost a month later to the day, the double NBA MVP (2019 and 2020) was very close to smashing his January 3 record, Sunday night against New Orleans for the first game of a series that will see Antetokounmpo and his family receive three more times in a row (Charlotte, the Clippers and then Miami will visit the champions of two years ago in the coming days). Still monstrous, number 34 of the Bucks who will also once again be one of the two captains (with the inevitable LeBron James) during the next All Star Game has slammed 50 points (20 of 26 on shots, including 3 of 4 three points), to which must be added 13 rebounds and 4 assists.

Already ten matches at more than 40 points for Antetokounmpo

Milwaukee, which chained a fourth success on Sunday by taking advantage of the current misfortunes of the Pelicans (8th defeat in a row) to correct them with a score of 135-110 in Wisconsin, is once again in great shape, and what about its “Phenomenon Greek”! The latter is already in ten games this season finished with 40 points or more to his counter. Already at halftime, Antetokounmpo, who had started the game with an 8 of 9 on shots and scored twelve points in a row a little later, already totaled 29 points and 11 rebounds. The only black point: the five free throws he missed in this match, out of the twelve he attempted. If not for his failures on the line, the Greek would have pushed his mark even higher. He will therefore always settle for 55 points for the moment. However, everything suggests that the pivot or winger of Nigerian origin will not remain stuck at 55 units for long. And if he steals the title of MVP from the huge favorite and double holder Nikola Jokic, there will be nothing to complain about.
