Giannis Antetokounmpo Hangs Triple-Double on Portland

Giannis Antetokounmpo registered the seventh triple-double of his career Wednesday night, leading the Milwaukee Bucks to a 115-107 win against the visiting Portland Trail Blazers.

The Greek Freak finished with 15 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists.

The 22-year-old is closing in on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s franchise record for triple-doubles (8).

Per the AP:

“Maybe it wasn’t a fluid game for Giannis, but this is what he does,” Milwaukee coach Jason Kidd said. “He fills up the stat sheet. … He is a winner and he helped his team find a way to win tonight by getting other guys involved. That is the maturity of a 22-year-old, that you can see a leader is growing right in front of us.”


Jabari Parker added 27 points for Milwaukee, which rebounded from a one-point home loss to San Antonio on Monday to win for the fifth time in six games.


“The team is rolling right now, feeling good,” Antetokounmpo said. “Jabari is a beast right now.”
