Khris Middleton drops 51; dedicates his performance to Kobe Bryant

Giannis Antetokounmpo ruled out with a shoulder injury vs the Wizards, but Khris Middleton showed up in an outstanding way for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Middleton scored a career-high 51 points, leading Milwaukee to the win against the Wizards (131-151).

He also added 10 rebounds and 6 assist, as he scored the most points by a Bucks player this season.

After his incredible performance, the guard-forward of the Milwaukee Bucks dedicated his showing to Kobe Bryant.

“Kobe was one of my favorite players growing up besides (Michael) Jordan. I took a lot from his game. Everybody says Mamba mentality. To go out there and put on that type of performance, I definitely can dedicate that game to him as a thank you for what he did for the game.”
