Giannis scores 50 as Bucks drop Jazz 122-118


Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 50 points, including 32 points in the second half, to lead the Milwaukee Bucks past the Utah Jazz 122-118 on Monday night.

Wesley Matthews added 19 points for the Bucks, who improved to 14-3 on the season and won their eighth game in a row since losing to the Jazz earlier in November.

The 32 points in the second half were three short of Giannis' career-high for a half, and the 50 points were tow short of his career-high for a game, both set March 17 last season.

The Bucks will play Atlanta Wednesday night at Fiserv Forum.
