The Milwaukee Bucks have themselves a bonified star! Giannis Antetokounmpo continues to turns heads around the league with his MVP play. As he goes, so go the team and right now it does not seem like many teams can stop them.
The Orlando Magic are a young NBA team trying to figure out how to get back into playoff contention. Their coach, Jamal Mosely (from Milwaukee) , had some very complimentary things to say about the Bucks and Giannis after the Bucks won 109-102 at the Amway Center in Orlando. He spoke a lot about his “MVP-caliber play”.
"I think (the team) did a great job of building a wall in front of Giannis… He's tough to stop."

Giannis had himself another game last night. He played 33 minutes and scored 34 points. He also grabbed 13 rebounds and had two blocked shots. This is the seventh straight game Giannis has averaged 30+ points a game.
Giannis was selected 15th overall in the 2013 NBA draft. Looking back it is hard to think of any other player from that draft who would have been selected in front of him now.
What’s Next for the Bucks?
Milwaukee will play the Sacramento Kings at home on Wednesday night.
