The Bucks beat the Utah Jazz on Monday night, 122-118, for their eighth win in a row. It was, in short, a completely dominant game from Giannis, who finished with 50 points. No one described the night better than Jazz guard Mike Conley:
“We threw everything at him. We threw everybody at him. We threw double-teams and he made plays out of the post. He got to the free throw line. When he started making the long-range shot, that really makes it tough. I was proud of the way we defended. We tried rebounding and tried to box him out, and he was too tall, too long.”Good Guy Mike is at peace.
Giannis’ final stat line: A season-high 50 points, 14 rebounds, six assists with zero turnovers.
He’s the first player since MJ in 1989 to drop at least 50 points, 10 rebounds and five assists with no turnovers. The Bucks are now 12-1 in November and first in the Eastern Conference.
