The Milwaukee Bucks suffered a 129-115 loss to Utah Jazz on the road and reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo gave his respects to the Western Conference sensation after the game.

“They are the best team in the West”, said the Greek Freak who tapped 29 points and 15 rebounds with an explosive performance in the second half.

“It just looks fun. Like when I watch them play, it looks fun, it looks easy,” Antetokounmpo mentioned. “It looks simple. For sure, they look like us last year, and man, when you’re at that point and you’re playing with that confidence, you’re hard to beat for sure.”

The Jazz moved up to a 21-5 record with four scorers tapping 25 points or more against the Bucks, as Rudy Gobert and Joe Ingles tapped 27 points apiece to lead the way.
