November 18, 2021 Greek Freak Goes for 47


Top Highlights & Performances From Wednesday in the NBA

A busy night in the NBA saw a number of stellar performances, but none were bigger than Giannis Antetokounmpo’s 47-point outing in the Bucks’ win over the Lakers (109-102). Antetokounmpo made history with a 78-percent shooting night (18-for-23), including 75 percent from deep (3-for-4). Giannis became the only player to go for 45-plus while shooting above 75 percent more than once in the last 30 years. And after a brutal start, the Bucks have won three of their last five to get back within a game of .500 (7-8).
