Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 34 points in a season-ending 92-89 loss to the Raptors on Thursday, adding nine rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 47 minutes.
He was extremely aggressive early in this game, going 5-of-5 from the field with all of those shots coming in the paint. The Bucks offense was not very successful outside of the Giannis drives in the first half, making just 3-of-17 outside of the paint in the first 24 minutes. Antetokounmpo also only checked out with 6:26 left in the second, sat out for 81 seconds, and played the rest of the game. He reached superstardom this season and he'll be in the mix for the No. 1 pick in drafts next year. He's still just 22, so he could get even better. Let your imagination run wild with how good he could be. Apr 27 - 10:21 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo's 30 points weren't enough in a 118-93 loss to the Raptors in Game 5 on Monday.

He was coming off a 6-of-19 FG performance in Game 4 and got off to a nightmare start in the first quarter by hitting 1-of-6 shots, but he finally got things going in the second quarter when he hit all six of shots. Giannis finished the night 12-of-19 from the field in 41 minutes with nine rebounds, three assists, three steals and three blocks, but simply didn't have enough help -- only two of his teammates scored in double digits. The Bucks now trail the Raptors (3-2) for the first time in this series and will look to save their season in Game 6 on Thursday at home.

Giannis Antetokounmpo made just 6-of-19 from the field for 14 points with nine rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and seven turnovers during an 87-76 loss to the Raptors on Saturday.

Besides his 10 points in the second quarter, Giannis was not the 2016-17 version of himself during this game. Antetokounmpo was just 3-of-10 on jumpers in this game and was even worse on layups at just 2-of-8. He was also pressing a bit to cause those seven turnovers, as well. You could say Giannis was just due for a bad game after he dominated this series perhaps more than any other player has done so in the past week. He'll be better on Monday in Toronto as this series has now become just a best of three.

Giannis Antetokounmpo made an impact all over the court during a 104-77 win over the Raptors on Thursday, scoring 19 points with eight rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He's easily the best player in this series and he continues to run the offense. Antetokounmpo's defense has been just as good as his offense as he's often been the last line of defense. The Bucks kept the Raptors to just 30 points in the first half to help them coast to a 2-1 lead. They'll look to take a bigger lead on Saturday in Milwaukee.
Apr 20 - 11:26 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 24 points with 15 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one triple in Tuesday's 106-100 Game 2 loss to Toronto.

This was actually an off night for Giannis as he hit 9-of-24 shots and 5-of-7 free throws with four turnovers. The Raptors said their No. 1 priority was to slow down the Greek Freak, but it's clear that he's going to get eat no matter what and the Bucks even had a chance to steal this game -- they missed their final five shots of the contest. With the series tied up 1-1, the Bucks should be feeling good and the next two games will be in Milwaukee on Thursday and Saturday. Khris Middleton added 20 points, five boards, two assists, one steal and three triples for the Bucks.
Apr 18 - 9:52 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo put on a scoring clinic during a 97-83 win over the Raptors on Saturday, making 13-of-18 from the field for 28 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 38 minutes.

The Raptors simply had no answer for him. Antetokounmpo did it all as a scorer in all different types of sets, dunking the ball four times with five layups. Coach Jason Kidd has shown he's willing to play Antetokounmpo huge minutes and was already playing him 36.8 minutes per game when given two days off during the regular season, so Giannis could be getting minutes close to 40 the rest of the way. He's an absolute treat to watch and looks like fantasy's No. 2 pick next year.
Apr 15 - 9:53 PM

P.J. Tucker and DeMarre Carroll are expected guard Giannis Antetokounmpo in the first round.

Coach Dwane Casey said Giannis is one of the best players in the NBA, so he knows it'll be a challenge. "We’re gonna bank on those guys to do their jobs," Casey said about his defensive specialists. The Raptors would do well to keep Giannis out of the paint, especially after 72.0 percent of his shot total came in the paint against them this season. Playoff Giannis should be a treat.
Apr 13 - 4:07 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo (rest), Khris Middleton (rest), Tony Snell (rest) and Matthew Dellavedova (rest) did not travel to Boston for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Celtics.

This move essentially guarantees that the Celtics will finish as the No. 1 seed out East, and it's not terribly surprising to see Jason Kidd execute this move with the No. 5 seed out East no longer a possibility for the Bucks. With most Milwaukee's main guys on the sidelines Wednesday night, Malcolm Brogdon and Greg Monroe should dominate the offense, and guys like Rashad Vaughn, Mirza Teletovic and Michael Beasley suddenly become relevant.

According to the team's game notes, the Bucks are expected to rest Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, Matthew Dellavedova and Tony Snell on Wednesday vs. Boston.

Game notes aren't always reliable and you would think that the Bucks are still interested in stealing the No. 5 seed from Atlanta, but the important takeaway here is that this is an away game and Giannis, Middleton, Delly and Snell are listed as "not with team." We'll keep an eye on this, but it's possible their status could change depending on the results of Atlanta's game on Tuesday. For what it's worth, the projected starters for the Bucks are Malcolm Brogdon, Rashad Vaughn, Michael Beasley, Mirza Teletovic and Thon Maker.

Giannis Antetokounmpo recorded his third triple-double of the season with 10 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in Monday's 89-79 win over the Hornets.

How good has he been this season? Giannis is on pace to become the first player in NBA history to finish in the top 20 in total points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks. He finished 5-of-11 from the field with one block in 36 minutes tonight, and his Bucks still have a chance to steal the No. 5 seed away from Atlanta. Expect Giannis to see his normal workload vs. Boston on Wednesday.
Apr 10 - 10:57 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo played through a stomach flu and scored 20 points in a 90-82 win over the 76ers on Saturday, helping the Bucks clinch a playoff spot in the process.

Playoff Giannis is going to be so much fun. The Bucks haven't won a playoff series since 2000-01 which is the longest active drought in the NBA, so maybe the Greek Freak will change that. He finished 7-of-15 from the field and 6-of-11 from the line, adding 10 rebounds, six assists, three steals and two blocks in 40 minutes. The Bucks will be fighting for seeding in the final two games, so Giannis is locked in.
Apr 8 - 9:52 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 25 in a 104-89 loss to the Pacers on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, six assists and one block in 35 minutes.

That's now three straight losses for the Bucks, who are just 1.5 games ahead of the ninth-seeded Heat. The Bucks don't have too tough of a schedule with a game against the 76ers on Saturday, the Hornets on Monday, and close against a Celtics team on Wednesday -- they may have nothing to play for there. If there is a positive, Giannis' fantasy owners know he won't be resting in the next two games.
Apr 6 - 9:40 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo double-doubled in a blowout loss to the Thunder on Tuesday, scoring 11 points (3-of-10 FGs, 5-of-8 FTs) with 10 rebounds.

He only played 24 minutes and didn't touch the floor in the fourth quarter, as the Bucks lost this game by 31 points. Giannis was the only starter to hit double-digit points and added four assists, three blocks and four turnovers, but his owners should be expecting so much more from him on Thursday vs. the Pacers.
Apr 4 - 11:11 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo had a massive game in a loss on Sunday, posting 31 points, 15 rebounds, nine assists, four steals and two blocks in 40 minutes of action.

He's 22 years old. The Bucks' defense was their undoing tonight, and they didn't get much from the starting unit, so the weight of the game fell almost entirely on Giannis' capable shoulders. He finished 10-of-18 from the field and 11-of-12 from the line, and shows no signs of letting up in Milwaukee's final five games.
Apr 2 - 7:53 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo nearly triple-doubled in Friday's overtime win over the Pistons with 28 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists.

With the win, the Bucks are currently the No. 5 seed with a 0.5 game lead over the Hawks. Giannis hit 7-of-16 shots and added a pair of blocks with one steal, but really struggled at the free throw line (14-of-21FTs). He was hitting his free throws at a 77.5 percent clip prior to Friday, so this isn't anything to panic about. He looks like he's going to be a top-3 asset in fantasy leagues for a very long time.
