Giannis Antetokounmpo Dominates as Milwaukee Breezes Past Portland

Jusuf Nurkic has not yet recovered from the calf injury of his left leg, which made it much easier for Milwaukee to celebrate in Portland with a score of 127:108. Giannis Antetokounmpo didn't even break a sweat, and he almost had a triple-double.

The great Greek scored 24 points in 23 minutes on the court, and also had 13 rebounds and 8 assists. Lopez, who pulled down nine rebounds, topped all scorers with 17 points at halftime and Milwaukee led 58-48. “I have a long way to still go, a long time to still play.

I’m just enjoying it and I want to keep getting better, keep being an effective player out there, being the best player I could be," said Lopez, who is in his 14th season via ESPN. “I’m lucky that there are people that are out there trying to help me, trying to make me better and put me in that position”.

The fact that all the Bucks players who played made at least one rebound, and even two who played only four minutes, shows how big a hole Portland's basket is without Nurkic. In the ranks of Portland, the only one worth mentioning was Damian Lillard with 28 points.

The most effective player in the team of the current NBA champion was Klay Thompson with 42 points. He made 12 3-pointers from 16 attempts.

In the defeated team, Shay Gilges-Alexander was the best with 20 points. “It was a beautiful game to watch him play,” Draymond Green said of Thompson via ESPN. “... We needed it. It’s been a while since we had a blowout win.

It's good to get this one, especially first game with Steph out. It was good to start off on this foot and try to create some momentum." “This is a confidence booster for sure to play without him, but to see the performance of the team, amazing individual performances we got,” coach Steve Kerr said.

"It was a feel-good game for a lot of people and that just really fuels everybody. Hopefully we can keep that going”.
