Giannis Antetokounmpo came through with 27 points, seven rebounds, five assists and two turnovers in Milwaukee's 104-102 win over Boston on Sunday.
The Bucks successfully protected their home court, evening up their first-round series with the Celtics at two apiece, and The Greek Freak came through with some huge buckets in the clutch including a game-winning tip-in with 5 seconds left. He did tweak his ankle during the fourth quarter after coming down on Aron Baynes’ foot, but his ankle didn’t turn all that much and he played through it, so he should be fine for Tuesday’s Game 5 in Boston.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 19 points with five rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes during a win over the Celtics on Game 3 on Friday.

For the umpteenth time, Giannis put Aron Baynes on a poster with a highlight-reel jam in the second half (video in link below). As expected, the Bucks did go with some Giannis at the five today, but it wasn't long because Thon Maker was hot. Giannis didn't get to the line today and his usage did drop overall. He'll likely have a bigger offensive output in Game 4 on Sunday.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was awesome again, hitting 13-of-17 shots for 30 points, nine rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a block in 43 minutes as the Bucks fell into an 0-2 hole against the Celtics on Tuesday.

Giannis and Khris Middleton (25 points) combined to hit 23-of-31 shots and the Bucks shot 60 percent from the floor for the game, but the Celtics still ran away with an impressive 120-106 win to take a 2-0 lead. Giannis has now scored at least 30 points in four straight playoff games, including last season's first-round loss to the Raptors. The Bucks will try to figure out how to beat Boston in Milwaukee on Friday, which has basically become a must-win game for the Bucks.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 35 points in Sunday's 113-107 Game 1 overtime loss to the Celtics.

Before fouling out in OT, Giannis racked up 13 boards, seven assists, and three steals on 11-of-21 shooting—including 12-of-14 from the free throw line—in his 45 minutes. The craziest part? The Celtics actually did a good job containing the superstar, something we don't say often when a player goes for a 35/13/7 line. As an aside, it's not a good sign for the Bucks that the team lost their opening playoff game with Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton combining for 66 points on 23-of-41 (56.1%) shooting.

Coach Brad Stevens said it's not going to be one person guarding Giannis Antetokounmpo.

"We have to throw a lot of different bodies at him," Stevens said. Al Horford figures to be a big part of the plan and Stevens was also asked about it. "I trust Al Horford to guard any position on the floor with his athleticism and attention to detail," said the coach. It's no secret the key to Boston's success will be to limit Giannis.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) played 22 minutes during Wednesday's blowout loss, scoring 10 points with 10 rebounds, three assists and five turnovers.

The Bucks ran into a buzzsaw in Philly and the loss may have been particularly costly -- if they lose a coin flip for draft order on Friday, their first-round pick will transfer to Phoenix. In any case, they have to be thrilled that Giannis is healthy for the postseason. "We definitely know we can’t win the whole thing without [Antetokounmpo]," Eric Bledsoe said recently. Their first task will be defeating the injury-depleted Celtics in the first round.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) will play Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

Antetokounmpo has spent the past two games on the sidelines with matchups against some of the worst teams in the Eastern Conference (Orlando and New York), but he'll be back in action tonight for an important matchup against the 76ers which can affect the seeding of both teams. Considering he only missed two games, he should see a full complement of minutes tonight, and his return to action will likely push Jabari Parker back to the second unit.
Apr 11 - 11:30 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo (right ankle soreness) will not play on Monday vs. the Magic.

This will be Giannis' second straight game on the sidelines. Coach Joe Prunty said he's waiting for him to be strong enough where he can do everything they need him to do on the court, but he reportedly looked really good in warmups. For now, consider Giannis questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Philly. Jabari Parker will draw another start and Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton will have more on their plate offensively.
Apr 9 - 6:20 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo (right ankle soreness) is questionable to play Monday vs. the Magic.

Antetokounmpo sat out Saturday's game with soreness in his right ankle, and it wouldn't be super shocking to see him sit out tonight's game as well, given it's a matchup against the 24-56 Magic. We should get another update once he's going through his pregame routine, but if The Greek Freak is forced to spend another game on the sidelines, it'll be Jabari Parker earning another start with Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton doing more on offense. Stay tuned.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (right ankle soreness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Knicks.

Antetokounmpo missed a game back in late March due to a sprained ankle; however, it's unknown if Giannis is dealing with any increased discomfort of late, or if the Bucks are simply choosing to buy some rest for their superstar to keep him fresh for the postseason. We will have an update on his status by Saturday evening. With Antetokounmpo sidelined, Jabari Parker will likely draw the start at power forward. In addition, Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton should see a spike in their usage rates.
Apr 7 - 10:21 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo made 7-of-21 from the field for 19 points with 10 rebounds, seven assists, four steals and one block in a 119-111 loss to the Nets on Thursday.

The Nets were outstanding against Giannis and blocked him a whopping six times in this game. Antetokounmpo's scoring is slightly down since the break and he's not getting to the line as much, so he Bucks will want to get him back on track. The Bucks sit in a tie with the Wizards for the No. 7-8 seeds, so that will be a huge factor in the Greek Freak's playing time in the final week.
Apr 5 - 11:03 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo helped lead the Bucks to victory on Tuesday, racking up 29 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, one steal, two blocks and five turnovers in 36 minutes.

The Greek Freak got right to the rack with little resistance, and also had an incredible chase-down block on Jaylen Brown during the closing minutes of the game to help seal the deal for Milwaukee (link below). He's a stud and should continue to put up monster stat lines as the Bucks fight for seeding out East. John Henson finished with 11 points, four boards, one assist, one steal, three blocks and two turnovers in 28 minutes and he should be owned in most cases.
Apr 3 - 10:59 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo had another all-around gem before fouling out on Sunday, scoring 18 points on 7-of-13 shooting with 12 rebounds, six assists and one steal.

Giannis has been overshadowed by teammates the past few games -- Eric Bledsoe's monster game on Friday, and Jabari Parker's season-high 35 points tonight -- but he's obviously crushing it for fantasy owners still setting lineups. Best yet, we haven't heard about his recurring knee soreness since his last DNP on Mar. 23.
Apr 1 - 11:16 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo finished Friday's overtime victory against the Lakers with 27 points, 16 rebounds, four assists and a blocked shot.

Antetokounmpo hit 8-of-20 from the field and he was 11-of-15 from the free-throw line, combining with Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe for 94 of the team's 124 points. He continues to be a handful for everyone, even when his shot isn't falling. The good news for his fantasy owners is that the Bucks are scratching and clawing for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and he won't likely be rested at any point down the stretch.
Mar 31 - 2:06 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo only missed four times during Thursday's blowout win over the Warriors, posting 32 points, four rebounds, five assists, two steals and just one turnover in 34 minutes.

Antetokounmpo did a really nice job of disrupting Golden State's passing lanes, destroyed them on the break, and also added a bonus two triples while hitting both his free throws. As for the ankle that has been an issue for Antetokounmpo as of late, he did acknowledge that he’s still feeling some discomfort there but said he feels good enough to keep on playing through it. With Milwaukee clinging to the No. 8 seed out East, they don’t really have the luxury of giving The Greek Freak any time off.
