NBA: Antetokounmpo scores 55 points as Milwaukee Bucks win

One day after Donovan Mitchell's historic performance with 71 points, Giannis Antetokounmpo provided the next highlight in the NBA.

The superstar of the Milwaukee Bucks scored a personal career best with 55 points and led his team to a 123:113 (61:49) home win over the Washington Wizards. Antetokounmpo had missed the Bucks' previous encounter with knee pain.

For the first time in his North American Basketball League career, Antetokounmpo has netted at least 40 points in three straight games. In the final section alone, the Greek scored 19 points. In the final stages, Antetokounmpo scored twelve points in a row from Milwaukee, which gave the Bucks a decisive lead.

With a record of 24 wins and 13 losses, the Bucks are third in the East, just behind leaders Boston Celtics (26 wins, 12 losses). The Celtics lost surprisingly clearly with 117:150 (54:74) at the Oklahoma City Thunder, who had to do without their top scorer Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. The Thunder compensated for this as a team: five players scored over 20 points. With 150 points, the Thunder set a team-high since the club relocated from Seattle to Oklahoma City in 2008.
