Giannis Antetokounmpo made another dominant performance, as the Milwaukee Bucks remained undefeated in the NBA (3-0).
The “Greek Freak” had 31 points and 15 rebounds and helped his team beat the New York Knicks at home (124-113). It’s the first time since the 2005/06 season that Milwaukee makes a perfect start after three games (3-0).
Khris Middleton scored 30 points and grabbed seven boards for the winners, as Eric Bledsoe finished the game with an impressive double-double (16 points, 13 assists).
Tim Hardaway Jr. posted a team-high 24 points for the Knicks, who suffered their third defeat in four games (1-3). Trey Burke and Mario Hezonja contributed 19 and 18 points, respectively.
The Bucks dominated their opponents in the first half and were in front by 19 at halftime (71-52). New York came back, though, and outscored their opponents 17-35 in the third quarter to cut the deficit to just one (88-87).
However, the hosts stood tall, executed very well offensively (36 points) and brought the lead back to double digits to win the game (124-113).
