Giannis Antetokounmpo posts 47-point double-double for Bucks
Milwaukee Bucks small forward Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 47 points (15-of-23 field goals, 17-of-21 free throws) with 11 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal, and 2 turnovers in 37.9 minutes of a 125-124 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday.
Antetokounmpo set season-highs in points, free throw makes, and free throw attempts. His previous season-high was 10 made free throws and he fell just one attempt shy of his career-high. Outside the arc, Antetokounmpo missed all four of his shots. The Bucks will take a day and then look to bounce back versus the Utah Jazz on Friday.
Giannis scored 68.7 FanDuel points on Wednesday, his second-highest output of the season. He dropped 51.6 FanDuel points when the Bucks played the Jazz last month.
