Antetokounmpo passes over the Lakers with 44 points

It should be a fight between two candidates for the ring, but in the present it is not. Milwaukee visited the Lakers and won comfortably – champion style. With a fantastic Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Wisconsin team made a difference from the start and proved to be a couple of steps ahead of the Californians, who couldn’t even fight for the victory until they lost a definitive 116-131.

The Greek Freak was a real nightmare for Angelenos. Without being able to stop him all night, the MVP of the last Finals went up to 44 points, 14 rebounds, 8 assists and 2 blocks in 35 minutes of play. It was an exhibition, one more in his lofty career, which aims to have many more things to celebrate in the present and future.

With the Greek in command, the Bucks concluded the first quarter 14 points up, an income that they increased at halftime to 22 points and that during the third period reached 30… The gold and purple took advantage of the last minutes of the clash to make up the result, but it was of little use given what was seen on the parquet: a resounding superiority of his rival.

Antetokounmpo was immeasurable, but the team’s collective performance was not far behind. In a first half to frame, they shot 70 percent from the field to achieve a total of 78 points and lead the way for the rest of the match. To reach such a bar, Khris Middleton did not miss the party with 21 points, Bobby Portis with 23, and Jrue Holiday, who posted a double-double of 15 points and 10 assists.
