In last night’s game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Indiana Pacers, Greece’s Giannis Antetokounmpo broke franchise-records and scored 64 points in a game that was won by the Bucks 140-126.
The last record was held by Michael Redd who scored 57 points in a 113-111 loss against the team Utah Jazz.
Antetokounmpo, also affectionately known as ‘the Greek Freak’, is “an unstoppable player” says his coach Adrian Griffin. Griffin added, “You can’t guard him one-on-one…He has an incredible will to win.”
However, Antetokounmpo’s new record was overshadowed by an incident near the locker room over who had the game ball and who was entitled to it. The game itself also had heated exchanges between several players, a tackle and technical fouls.
