Giannis Antetokounmpo saw Donovan Mitchell, Luka Doncic and Klay Thompson explode, and ran too.

Unfortunately for Washington and Danny Avdia, they were the victim.

The Greek Freak set a new career record tonight (between Tuesday and Wednesday) with no less than 55 points, and single-handedly ended the Wizards' five-game winning streak when he led Milwaukee to a 113:123 home win.

Yanis, who was absent from the previous meeting between the teams two days ago to rest and gather strength, did his best on the field, finishing with 20 of 33 from the field and 15 of 16 from the free throw, and also contributed 10 rebounds and 7 assists.

It was his third straight game with a double-double of 40 points or more.



Danny Avdia was helpless against him defensively like the rest of the Wizards players, but at least he can take solace in another not bad offensive game.

The Israeli forward received 28 minutes off the bench and finished with 12 points (4-for-7 from the field, 0-for-3 from three-pointers, 4-for-4 from the penalty box) along with 4 rebounds, 3 assists, a steal and two turnovers.

This is the third game in a row that he reaches double digits in points.

On the other hand, in the last two games he is 0 for 6 from three.

The explosion trend continues.

The game was played under the control of Milwaukee almost throughout.

Bradley Beal returned after missing three games due to a hamstring injury, was injured again and did not finish the game, but it was without him that the Wizards were able to bite into the Bucks' lead, which was 20 during the first half.

In the last quarter, the Wizards made sounds of a comeback, but Giannis had enough energy to close things out with a series of winning moves.

In the end, the Bucks went up to 13:24, while the Wizards went down to 22:17.



Besides Yannis, Brook Lopez was also at his best in Milwaukee and finished with 21 points, 12 rebounds and 6 blocks.

Bobby Portis added 17 and 13 rebounds.

On the other hand, Washington's scoring list was led by Kristaps Porzingis with 22 along with 9 rebounds and Kyle Kuzma reached 20 points, but the Wizards suffered from a weak shooting day and made only 8 threes for 29%.

The Wizards will take the floor again on the night between Saturday and Sunday, when they will be hosted by Oklahoma City, who will come after tonight's big victory over Boston.
