The Greek Freak is turning it on just before the All-Star break

Giannis Antetokounmpo had one of his best games of the season and when all was said and done, he completed with a game-sealing dunk. The Greek Freak had 36 points, 14 rebounds, five assists and four blocks as the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Los Angeles Clippers 105-100.

Giannis took over in the last quarter making six out of his nine shots, while the Clippers couldn’t contain him. He sparked a closing 9-0 run to help the Milwaukee Bucks rally and get the win for the first time in 11 games this season when trailing after three quarters.

Antetokounmpo has scored at least 35 points in four straight games. He’s the first Bucks player to do that since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar from Jan. 6-14, 1973.

It was a close game with Kawhi Leonard scoring 25 points, while Spaniard Serge Ibaka added a double-double (15 p. 11 r.) Frenchman Nicola Batum had eights point and six rebounds, while Croatian Ivica Zubac scored two points. The Clippers entered the last four minutes of the game with a 100-96 lead, but couldn’t score again.

On the contrary, there was no answer for Giannis as the Bucks got to a 21-13 record, just one game away from the top spot in the East and the Clippers dropped to 24-12, four games behind the Utah Jazz for the top of the West.
