On Sunday October 29th, Giannis Antetokounmpo and the (4-2) Milwaukee Bucks came to Philips Arena in a matinee matchup to face the (1-6) Atlanta Hawks. Before the season began, I predicted that Giannis would be named the 2017-18 NBA MVP. Sunday he continued his early season MVP campaign.
Giannis Antetokounmpo came out the gate firing and he set the tone early in the first four minutes of action. Giannis scored the Bucks first 9 points and picked up an assist on the Bucks 11th point. Giannis Antetokounmpo finished the night with 33 points, 12 rebounds and 5 on (14-21) shooting from the field. Sharp shooter Khris Middleton finished the night with 27 points while Bucks rookie of the year/ Atlanta native Malcolm Brodgon finished with 16 points and 4 assist.
The Bucks were on fire from the three point line in the first half hitting nine three point shots. Bucks guard Rashad Vaughn was responsible for 4 of them going (4-6) from three finished with 12 points on he night. Ginnis Antetokounmpo leads the NBA in scoring averaging 34 points per game.
For the Atlanta Hawks, Dennis Schroder and Taurean Prince continue to impress game by game. Dennis Schroder finished the night 21 points and 8 assist shooting (8-16) from the field. Second year wingman Taurean Prince finished the game with 17 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assist. Prince has be a force for the Hawks from behind the three point line and he continues to impress early in the season.
