Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo dedicated his career-high 44-point haul against the Portland Trailblazers to his father.
Charles Antetokounmpo passed away during the off-season, and the Bucks superstar secured the game ball afterwards, writing on it: “This is for daddy, we got a win tonight and I got 44 points.”
