In what was a low-scoring game, Giannis Antetokounmpo balled out, scoring 33 points on 12-22 shooting from the field and leading the Milwaukee Bucks to a 106-97 win. He finished with a game-high plus-minus of +19, and also grabbed a whopping 19 rebounds, and assisted his teammates 11 times.

The major reason behind the Milwaukee Bucks' win that day was their fourth-quarter comeback, as Mike Budenholzer's side scored 30 points in those 12 minutes. Giannis Antetokounmpo either scored or assisted most of those 30 points, thus proving to be one of the most clutch players in the NBA.


#2 Milwaukee Bucks vs Washington Wizards, 2020-21 NBA season

Giannis Antetokounmpo took Bradley Beal and the Washington Wizards to the sword once again in a matter of a few days in March 2021, dropping 33 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists against them in a 125-119 win for the Bucks. It was a closely fought contest between the two sides, but Antetokounmpo's performance proved to be the difference-maker that night and helped the Bucks go 24-14 in the Eastern Conference.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was well-assisted by his No.2 and No.3, as Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday ended the game with 16 and 18 points, respectively.


#1 Denver Nuggets vs Milwaukee Bucks, 2018-19 NBA season

Playing in front of their home crowd, the Milwaukee Bucks failed to win a blockbuster clash against the Denver Nuggets, losing 134-123. But Bucks power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo put in a performance for the ages, putting up 36 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists. Antetokounmpo was clearly at his playmaking best, but an outstanding game from Gary Harris (28 points on 5-7 shooting from downtown) sunk the Milwaukee Bucks.

That performance remains one of Antetokounmpo's best, and without a doubt his best triple-double outing so far. He shot 14-21 from the field, made one of his two three-point attempts, and also blocked three shots. The Greek Freak finished the game with a plus-minus of -3, which shows how good the Nuggets were that day.
