The Greek Freak scored 36 points on his roster and took the lead in the Bucks’ return to the NBA.
Milwaukee Bucks surpassed Boston Celtics 119-112 at Disney’s HP Field on their return to NBA. After five months without playing, the Wisconsin franchise cut his three-game losing streak.
The first half had a clear lead for the Bucks who started with a sweeping 17-2 run. From there to the middle of the third stretch, the Celtics shortened the distance little by little to equalize the match. After a new but slight advantage from the leaders of the East, over the end, once again the match went from basket to basket that was defined for the Bucks.
Giannis Antetokounmpo closed the night with 36 points, 14 rebounds and 7 assists. The Greek returned imposing presence just as he did before the league stoppage. For the Celtics, the points were distributed but those who stood out a little more were Marcus Smart, with 23 points, and Jaylen Brown, with 22 units.
With this win, Milwaukee reaffirms itself in first place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 53-12, while Boston continues third with 10 fewer victories than its rivals tonight.
