Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a career-high 55 points as the Milwaukee Bucks claimed a 123-113 victory against the Washington Wizards.
The 28-year-old also recorded 10 rebounds and seven assists to end the Wizards’ five-game winning run.
“I work hard. A lot of people think my game is boring, but I’m doing everything to improve,” he said.
This was the fourth time in his career that Antetokounmpo has scored more than 50 points in a game.
Two-time NBA Most Valuable Player Antetokounmpo, who holds dual Greek and Nigerian citizenship, added: “I tried to make the right decisions, to stay aggressive throughout, to do everything for the team to win.”
His Bucks team-mate Bobby Portis came off the bench to score 17 points and 13 rebounds.
