Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Milwaukee Bucks to their home victory against the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday with his 47th double-double of the NBA 2018-19 Regular Season. Besides his team’s 50th win, he helped the Toronto Raptors seal their playoffs ticket. He scored 26 points and added 13 rebounds to his tally, but after the match commended Brook Lopez, Nikola Mirotic and Donte DiVincenzo for their contribution.

The Greek Freak was 5/7 inside the rainbow, 2/4 beyond the arc and 10/10 from the free throw line, but also dished six helpers and rejected one shot in 30 minutes. It was the first half of a back-to-back for the NBA leaders, so rest is a possibility for Antetokounmpo ahead of the road game against the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday night.
