Tuesday night was a big one for the Milwaukee Bucks and their superespstar player, Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The Bucks defeated the Indiana Pacers to snap a two-game losing streak. Antetokounmpo, the two-time league MVP and reigning NBA Finals MVP led the way, scoring 50 points.

And it wasn’t just a high-scoring night for Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak was efficient with his points and hauled in 14 rebounds for good measure.

That had people remembering Antetokounmpo’s last 50-point game, which came in Milwaukee’s championship-clinching Game 6 win over the Phoenix Suns in the NBA Finals.

Plenty of NBA fans were in awe of the effort.

Best of all is that while this didn’t quite match the stage of his last 50-point outing, Antetokounmpo’s was hardly an effort in excess. The Bucks only won the game 128-119. Pretty much every bit of that effort was required for Milwaukee to defeat Indiana.

Antetokounmpo missed Monday night’s game, a 122-107 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, with an ankle injury. In the previous game, he had a subpar effort as Milwaukee was on the wrong end of a 131-107 final against the Suns in a Finals rematch.

Following Tuesday’s effort, though, it’s safe to say that the Greek Freak is back to full health and at top form. If he’s not, it will be fun to watch.
