Bucks 97-113: Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 46 points to beat Chicago

Giannis Antetokounmpo partying under the baskets and finishing with 46 points, the Bucks cruised to an easy 113-97 win over the Bulls in a tough game with several nerves, technical penalties and an ejection.

The Bucs didn't feel like they could mess up Chicago against the Bulls. The bad losing days are over for Milwaukee as they beat the Bulls 97-113 in Chicago and went on a 17-0 run in the 4th quarter to make it 76-101 and sweep the game. It was the Bucks' 5th straight win.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was in the midst of all the good things for “The Deer.” “Greek fanaticism” wanted to send his own message to the bulls. Lots of nerves, technical penalties and sending off Nikola Vucevic for a hard foul on AJ Green.

Damian Lillard was the Bucks' second-leading scorer with 16 points (but on 4/18 shooting), while Patrick Beverley had 14 points, all in the 4th period.

Cobb White had 22 points, Vucevic had 17 points and Agios Dosumno had 15 points for the Bulls.

The Bucks' record at 40-21 (24-7 at home, 16-14 away) puts Milwaukee in 3rd place in the East and behind the 2nd place Cavaliers. The Bulls' record is 9th in the East at 28-32 (16-15 at home, 12-17 away).

The Bucks' next game is Tuesday morning (5/3) against the Clippers in Milwaukee.

Giannis Antetokounmpo's account

Giannis started the game aggressively. With first (down 15 points) Alex Caruso, then Andre Drummond, Giannis was aggressive, starting with two assists before starting to score. Overall he had 11 points and 4 assists in his first 8 minutes on the floor, responsible for the Bucks' first 23 points before going to the bench for concussion.

In the 2nd period, the Bulls continued to get the Caruses' Mark Giannis. And he continued to punish them, scoring consistently, finishing the first half with 23 points and 8 rebounds. And, in the 3rd period, things didn't change much. In contrast, Giannis was still dominant, constantly driving the Bulls' basket, resulting in another 15 points and a double-double from the 3rd period, already 38 points and 12 rebounds.

In the 4th period, with blood on fire, Giannis went a little more…conservative, but he found ways to score, finishing the game with 46 points, his 8th 40 of the year.
