Giannis Antetokounmpo did it all during Wednesday's road win in Boston, scoring 22 points with nine rebounds, three assists, three steals, three blocks and two 3-pointers.
Giannis finished 8-of-17 from the field, and the only area in which he wasn't dominant was free throw shooting -- he went 4-of-7 from the stripe. He earned well-deserved praise from Celtics coach Brad Stevens before the game. "I don't know if I've ever seen anybody like him [in transition]," Stevens said. "Obviously, LeBron is the guy you would compare [him] to with the size, the length, the speed, the ability to change direction and finish." As a reminder, he's still just 22 years old.

Giannis Antetokounmpo posted 22 points (8-of-14 FGs, 6-of-10 FTs) with eight rebounds, four assists and three turnovers during Sunday's home loss to the Bulls.

Antetokounmpo was solid offensively but he lost Nikola Mirotic on multiple defensive possessions, which is part of the reason Mirotic blew up for a game-high 28 points. It was only the Bucks' third loss in their past 14 games, but they can't be complacent with three games separating them from the No. 10 seed Pistons.
Mar 26 - 6:18 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 34 points with 13 rebounds, five assists, three blocks, two steals and one triple in Friday's 100-97 win over the Hawks.

He was unconscious in the first quarter, racking up 17 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three blocks, one steal and a triple in 12 minutes. He was coming off a monster 32-point game on Wednesday and is now the first Bucks player with 30 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in consecutive games since Terry Cummings in 1985. The Greek Freak slowed down a bit in March, but he's rolling again and should finish the season as a top-3 fantasy asset.
Mar 25 - 12:03 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 32 points in a 116-98 win at Sacramento on Wednesday, adding 13 rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

It's just the second time this month he's hit the 30-point mark, and Antetokounmpo scored at least 20 points in just two of his previous six games. The Bucks finally had their six-game road trip end and they'll be heading back home this weekend. Antetokounmpo is much better at home with a 54.0 field goal percentage with better averages in points, boards, steals, blocks and threes at home compared to being on the road. After a down couple weeks, Giannis should go back to being a top-three guy going forward.
Mar 23 - 1:24 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo hit 8-of-21 shots for 22 points, eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks in 36 minutes of Tuesday's 93-90 win over the Blazers.

Giannis tweaked an ankle on Saturday, but was never really in jeopardy of missing this game. This was a huge win for the Bucks, who now sit just 1/2 game in front of the No. 8 seeded Heat. This is good news for his owners, as the Bucks are going to need everything he has to offer in order to ensure the Bucks make the playoffs.
Mar 22 - 1:05 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is starting vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

He tweaked his right ankle while blocking Draymond Green's shot on Saturday, but wasn't listed on the injury report and should be fine. We'll let you know how he fares after the game.
Mar 21 - 10:00 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo tweaked his right ankle while blocking Draymond Green's shot on Saturday and immediately left the game.

He scored just nine points in the blowout loss and played 31 minutes, but the injury doesn't appear to be serious. We expect him to play on Tuesday night, but owners of the Greek Freak should watch for injury updates prior to game time in order to be certain he's playing tonight.
Mar 21 - 6:08 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored nine points during a blowout 117-92 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, adding three rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two steals in 31 minutes.

The Warriors know how to defend drivers as well as just about anyone and Antetokounmpo got a little too much Draymond Green today. He came into this game with a 53.9 field goal percentage in March and he continues to flirt with his two steals and two blocks per game. His fantasy owners will have a big advantage next week with the Bucks suiting up for four games.
Mar 19 - 1:42 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 26 points before fouling out of Friday's 107-103 win over the Lakers.

He fouled out of a game for the fourth time this season, but at least this time he fouled out in the final minute. Giannis shot 11-of-16 from the field in 35 minutes, adding eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks, one triple and four turnovers. The Bucks have won eight out of their last nine games and are seventh in the East, so the Greek Freak will feast the rest of the way with four games on the schedule in each of the next two weeks.
Mar 18 - 1:18 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo played just 28 minutes vs. the Clippers on Wednesday, but he still finished with 16 points (5-of-10 FGs, 6-of-9 FTs), five rebounds, five assists and one block.

Antetokounmpo picked up two fouls in the first eight minutes of the game, forcing a substitution, and he picked up a third foul after playing 4:24 in the second quarter. Jason Kidd was playing it safe, in other words. Giannis came in leading his team in points (23.1), rebounds (8.6), assists (5.5), blocks (1.9), and steals (1.8), and he's successfully guided the Bucks into the Eastern Conference playoff picture.
Mar 16 - 2:06 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 21 points in a 99-85 win over the Pacers on Friday, helping the Bucks win their fifth straight game.

The Bucks now have the longest active winning streak in the NBA. The Greek Freak was nothing short of special, racking up five steals for the fourth time in his career with eight rebounds, five assists, one block and one triple in 39 minutes. He also shot 7-of-13 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line in 39 minutes. The 22-year-old superstar should easily be a top-3 pick in all formats next season and he will try to make it six straight wins for the Bucks on Saturday vs. the Wolves.
Mar 10 - 10:30 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo stuffed the stat sheet again on Wednesday with 32 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists, four steals, two blocks, and just one turnover in 41 minutes.

Giannis has been everything fantasy owners hoped for, and more, posting top-five value in the preponderance of fantasy formats. He rounded out his stellar evening with efficient scoring, hitting 11-of-21 field goals and 10-of-13 free throws in tonight's home win vs. the Knicks. The victory leaves Milwaukee just half a game out of the No. 7 seed, with the Pistons, Bulls and Heat all in their sights.
Mar 8 - 11:44 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo made 7-of-13 from the field for 24 points with eight rebounds, five assists, two steals, three blocks, one 3-pointer and no turnovers in 35 minutes during a 112-98 win over the 76ers on Monday.

That'll work. Antetokounmpo busted out of his mini slump in a big way in his last three games with across-the-board output, leading to three wings along the way. On offense, he's gone back to living at the rim with 59.0 percent of his shots coming from within three feet, making an elite 78.3 percent of those. His averages were 23.0 points, 7.7 boards, 5.7 assists, 1.3 steals, 2.0 blocks, 0.7 turnovers and 0.3 treys in that span, too. He's looking like a top-two pick in leagues next year.
Mar 6 - 10:21 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 21 with 10 rebounds, four assists and one block in 35 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

Before the game, coach Jason Kidd talked about how Giannis is getting so much attention from defenses now, but maybe Khris Middleton's play-making should open things up. Giannis is up to 59 percent from the field since the break and he continues to post first-round value. He's looking like a lock to be a top-three pick in fantasy next year and beyond.
Mar 4 - 11:40 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo snapped out of his funk on Friday vs. the Clippers with 24 points on 10-of-13 shooting.

That's more like him. The Greek Freak was eerily quiet in his last two games and shot 9-of-26 from the field in that span, but he was on a mission tonight despite some early foul trouble in the second quarter. He hit 4-of-5 free throws in 31 minutes, adding eight assists, five rebounds, two steals and two blocks. Expect more of the same on Saturday vs. the Raptors.
