Giannis Antetokounmpo’s sixth career triple-double led the Milwaukee Bucks to a 93-89 win Monday night against the visiting Orlando Magic.
It was the Greek Freak’s first triple-dip of the season; he finished with 21 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, five steals and three blocks — a statline matched only by Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon.

The Bucks snapped a three-game losing streak.
Per the AP:
“It was a good one,” Antetokounmpo said. “We got the win, so it feels great. It feels even better.”
“I think we all know he can fill up a stat sheet, but now the next thing is filling up a stat sheet in a way that leads to wins,” Milwaukee coach Jason Kidd said. “Understanding that we ask a lot from him and expect a lot, but he’s only 21 years old.”
The Magic were led by Serge Ibaka’s 21 points, and Elfrid Payton added 18 but had five of Orlando’s 24 turnovers. The team was averaging 13 turnovers per game but had 19 in the first half.
