“Giannis Antetokounmpo is the perfect combination of dominance and high-efficiency basketball”: NBA Twitter applauds the Bucks MVP for becoming the only player to record a special feat in the last 40 seasons
In the 118-99 win over GSW, Giannis Antetokounmpo was absolutely sensational recording a 30/12/11 triple-double in under 30 minutes.
After losing back-to-back away games against the Charlotte Hornets, the Milwaukee Bucks decided to start their 2-game short homestand with a dominant win against the Golden State Warriors.
It was the defending champions who were in the driving seat of the clash, right from tip-off. A pretty one-sided affair, witnessing only 1 tie (2-2) and no lead changes, ended with the Bucks grabbing a much-needed 118-99 win.
Playing against a squad without the likes of Draymond Green, Giannis Antetokounmpo was successful in capitalizing on all the defensive mismatch Stephen Curry and co. had to offer. Seeing only 29:58 minutes of action, The Greek Freak was able to record a 30-point, 12-rebounds, and 11-assists triple-double.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is the only player to record multiple 30-point triple-doubles in 30 minutes or fewer in the last 4 seasons
Giannis Antetokounmpo finished the night entering the record books. The 2-time champ is the only player in the last 40 years, to record multiple (2) 30-point triple-doubles while playing only 30 or fewer minutes. The first instance where the 2021 FMVP recorded such a stat line – back on 24th October 2019, dropping 30/13/11 in 28 minutes against the Rockets.
