Giannis Antetokounmpo made 14-of-17 shots to finish Sunday's All-Star game with 30 points, six rebounds, three steals, one assist and one block.
In his first All-Star game, the Bucks' star led his team in scoring despite playing just 23 minutes and sitting out down the stretch. He hammered down a put-back dunk over Stephen Curry that will make highlight reels, and generally feasted in a game with zero defense. The Bucks are one game behind Detroit for the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference, and Giannis' production is more important than ever with Jabari Parker (ACL surgery) out for the season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo stuffed the stat sheet in Wednesday's 129-125 victory over the Nets, finishing with 33 points, nine rebounds, three assists, four steals and one block.

Antetokounmpo scored only eight points on Monday, so it was nice to see him bounce back in classic Greek Freak fashion on Wednesday. He was touted as a breakout candidate before the season and has most certainly lived up the hype. Giannis enters the All-Star break averaging 23.2 points, 8.6 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.7 steals per game.
Feb 15 - 10:04 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo hit just 2-of-9 shots for eight points, four rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block in 37 minutes of Monday's win over the Pistons.

It's nice to know the Bucks can win when Giannis isn't feeling it, as his eight points were a season low in a game in which he wasn't injured this season. He'd scored between 20 and 41 points in his previous five games and this was clearly just an off night for Giannis. He'll bounce back in the next one.
Feb 13 - 11:06 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo nearly triple-doubled in a 116-100 win over the Pacers on Saturday, scoring 20 points with 10 assists and eight rebounds.

He logged 34 minutes and shot 4-of-9 from the field, adding two blocks, one steal and two turnovers. Giannis has been super aggressive sans Jabari Parker (knee) and finished 12-of-14 from the line tonight after scoring a career-high 41 points and hitting 18-of-21 free throws on Friday vs. the Lakers. His biggest accomplishment was getting Paul George into early foul trouble, as the Pacers were forced to switch Glenn Robinson III and C.J. Miles onto him -- Giannis had a field day against them. He gets a matchup with the Pistons on Monday.
Feb 11 - 9:42 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a career-high 41 points in Friday's loss to the Lakers, adding eight rebounds, six assists, two steals, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

Wow. With Jabari Parker (knee) done for the season, we saw the return of point Giannis tonight as he was bringing the ball up the floor a lot more than usual. He had a 37.5 usage rate tonight compared to his season average of 28.5, so his owners should be prepared to see some monster lines from the Greek Freak going forward. He finished 11-of-20 from the field and went to the line a career-high 21 times, sinking 18 of his attempts.
Feb 10 - 11:52 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo torched the Suns during 137-112 win on Saturday, scoring 30 points with 12 rebounds, six assists and four blocks in 34 minutes.

It's been a little while since Giannis went completely off and he was awful on Wednesday in Utah. As mentioned yesterday, Antetokounmpo should have some more room around the basket with Khris Middleton (hamstring) ready to go for their next game on Wednesday. Antetokounmpo should dominate regardless.
Feb 5 - 1:18 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 23 points with eight rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer during a 121-117 loss to the Nuggets on Friday.

The Greek Freak is going to have a little more room to operate next week with Khris Middleton (hamstring) coming back on Wednesday. Antetokounmpo gets a whopping 62 percent of his shot total within eight feet, and he's also facing tight defense on 63.6 percent on all his shots -- only 9.7 percent on shots from beyond 10 feet. All these fancy stats aside, more space for Giannis should be a good thing and scoring isn't the main reason why he's a top-five player in fantasy anyway. The possible slight hit in usage could be offset by the uptick in better efficiency and dimes.
Feb 4 - 3:38 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored nine points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and three turnovers in 39 minutes against the Jazz during a 104-88 loss on Wednesday.

The only takeaway here is you don't play studs against the Jazz in DFS. After a monster December, Antetokounmpo did cool off a tad in January with 22.4 points, 8.4 boards, 4.5 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.1 blocks on 50.6 percent from the field -- all of those averages are down from December except for blocks. This dud dropped him to the No. 4 player on the year behind Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis and Kawhi Leonard. Giannis is fine, of course.
Feb 2 - 12:56 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 21 points with six rebounds, six assists, one block, two 3-pointers and no blocks in 45 minutes during a 112-108 loss to the Celtics on Saturday.

For almost any other player this side of James Harden or Russell Westbrook, this would have been a great line. But Giannis? One block? No steals in 45 minutes? Anyway, Antetokounmpo has completely spoiled his owners as fantasy's No. 2 player on the season. He'll be at the top of the rankings for a long time.
Jan 29 - 12:28 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 19 points in Friday's loss to the Raptors.

The Greek Freak got a quick hook in the first quarter after a couple of fouls and was limited to eight points in the first half, but made up for it with a strong showing after the break. He racked up eight assists with six rebounds, three blocks and a steal, shooting 7-of-15 from the field and 5-of-8 from the line. The Bucks have lost seven out of their last eight games, but Giannis' role will be safe regardless of his team's position in the standings.
Jan 27 - 10:58 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo was held in check during a 114-109 loss to the 76ers on Wednesday, making 7-of-19 from the field for 17 points with 12 rebounds, five assists and four steals in 39 minutes.

He missed all seven attempts from deep to cause the dip in efficiency. That has been a trend for Antetokounmpo this month and now he's only made 25.6 percent from deep in January. Still, Giannis is sitting at 51.0 percent from the field in January, so it's not hurting his fantasy owners in that department. He's one of the most consistent fantasy assets and is just 22 years old.
Jan 26 - 12:08 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 31 points on 11-of-17 shooting in Monday's win over the Rockets.

The Rockets had no answer for Giannis on the defensive end and Trevor Ariza couldn't even slow him down. He hit 7-of-8 from the line and 2-of-3 from beyond the arc, adding seven boards, three assists and four blocks in 36 minutes. He fouled out of his previous matchup vs. the 76ers last week, so expect a big performance on Wednesday against Philly without Joel Embiid (knee) patrolling the paint.
Jan 23 - 11:50 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 24 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on Saturday against the Heat.

The Greek Freak had a huge dunk over Hassan Whiteside, which should make the highlight reel tonight. He recorded his 19th double-double of the season and scored over 20 points for the first time against Miami this year. He has a good matchup against Houston on Monday, a team he scored 32 points with 11 rebounds and six assists in their last meeting.
Jan 21 - 10:10 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo fouled out in Friday's loss to the Magic, finishing with 17 points on 6-of-17 shooting.

This was the third time that he fouled out of a game this season.The Greak Freak had to work for everything tonight and missed a lot of tough looks. He did hit all four of his free throws and was able to grab 14 rebounds with five assists, one steal and a triple, but expect a better performance on Saturday vs. the Heat.
Jan 20 - 9:26 PM

Kyrie Irving, DeMar DeRozan, Jimmy Butler, LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo were named as the starters for the Eastern Conference All-Star Team.

Giannis clearly has earned his spot and the frontcourt is tough to argue against. On the other hand, Kyle Lowry is a massive snub. He's leading all East players in real plus minus, he's first among all NBA guards with at least seven starts for true shooting percentage and his assist:turnover ratio is better than the 10 starters.
