The Milwaukee Bucks won their fourth consecutive game, a 135-110 blowout of a short-handed New Orleans Pelicans team. Of course, the win was highlighted by Giannis Antetokounmpo‘s 50 points and 13 rebounds.
It was his tenth 40+ point game of the season, matching his career-high. Of course, Giannis’ most famous 50-point game came in Game Six of the 2021 NBA Finals, clinching Milwaukee’s first NBA title since 1971.
As the Bucks, who are currently the third seed in the Eastern Conference, start to look ahead to a potential playoff run, it may not be Giannis who will be the key to their success.
