Giannis Antetokounmpo returned from an injury and made a huge comeback success of scoring 49 points during the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Brooklyn Nets game, which concluded with a record of 117-114 on Sunday. Antetokounmpo, who had suffered from a sprained right ankle, had won Most Valuable Player twice in the Eastern Conference, and he is trying to battle Kevin Durant in giving off scores for their respective team.
Even though Antetokounmpo missed some games due to his sprained injury, his main goal is to play against the best players because that’s what he always dreamed about.
Antetokounmpo shared during an interview that moving forward is the key to why the team pushed their way to victory. He made a significant number of shots and 8 rebounds, while his teammate Khris Middleton finished off with 26 points and 11 rebounds.
On the other hand, Durant had equaled Antetokounmpo’s 42 points and gotten himself a handful of 10 rebounds. Although this game seemed to be a duel between Antetokounmpo and Durant, still Antetokounmpo focused on his strengths and kept on being aggressive. Even Antetokounmpo believed that Durant can manage to score 70, yet it’s his drive that managed him to lead the team into winning.
Meanwhile, top scorers include Kyrie Irving for 20 points and Landry Shamet for 17 points. The Milwaukee Bucks is set to play on Tuesday night for the play-off preview. Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets are looking forward to playing against the Philadelphia 76ers, as the Sixers are struggling to hold a tiebreaker in the season.
