Giannis Antetokounmpo has been scoring at will lately and that continued on Tuesday night. Antetokounmpo scored a career-high 55 points and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Washington Wizards 123-113.
This was the third consecutive game with 40 points or more for Antetokounmpo, tying a franchise record. He finished the night just two points shy of Michael Redd’s franchise record of 57 points in a game.
Coming into the game, the Bucks had lost five of six games, so getting this win at home was important.
Brook Lopez added 21 points and Bobby Portis scored 17 points in the win.
Milwaukee improved to 24-13. The Bucks travel to Toronto to face the Raptors on Wednesday night at 6:30pm.
