Giannis Antetokounmpo shot 14-of-18 from the field and 11-of-16 from the line on his way to 40 points, 15 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a triple in 35 minutes of a 142-133 win against the Pacers on Thursday.
This was his third 40/15/5 game of his career, with only Russell Westbrook having more than him with five of such instances in the same span. The Bucks now sit just a single game behind the Nets for the No. 2 seed in the East, and while it’s unlikely, they could take it away from Brooklyn. For what it’s worth, they have the highest point differential in the conference at +5.9 per game, yet it seems like both their losses are more lopsided than they’d like them to be. They’ll try to get some revenge against Miami on Saturday, who eliminated them from the playoffs just one season ago. Khris Middleton did his thing with 22 points, Brook Lopez had 21 and eight with a block, and Jrue Holiday had a 20/14 double-double with four boards and a season-high tying four blocks.
