Giannis Antetokounmpo returned to action after missing two games and made another stellar performance on both ends.

The superstar of the Milwaukee Bucks had 20 points and 17 rebounds in 35 minutes of action in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Despite his performance, though, the Bucks (Khris Middleton – 29 points) lost to the Phoenix Suns (Chris Paul – 32 points, Devin Booker – 27 points) by 13 (105-118) and are now trailing the series 1-0.

Antetokounmpo and the Bucks will now attempt to bounce back in Game 2 on Thursday night.
