Jimmy Butler offered baskets to every teammate20 April 2020 / Miguel Coelho
The 30-year-old didn't want his teammates to remain rusty... So he gifted them baskets
The Greek Freak continues his excellent displays early on the season. Yesterday, in a tough win at home against the Utah Jazz, he finished with an impressive statline of 50 points, 14 rebounds, 6 assists and zero (!) turnovers.
It seems that his MVP trophy last year didn’t make him slow down one bit, as he looks poised for another strong campaign for the same award. Without Khris Middleton it was known that Giannis had to carry a bit more of the offensive load, especially against a defensive-minded Utah Jazz squad. Quin Snyder tried everything, since double-teams, to switching after Pick’n Rolls, to give him the space to hit the long-range shot, but it just wasn’t working. It was one of those perfect nights where a superstar just can’t be stopped no matter what your defensive strategy is. In the end it cost Utah dearly, as they ended up losing by a 4 point margin without Rudy Gobert, against one of the best teams in the league.
We need to rewind to March 2019 to remember the last time Giannis had a 50-point performance against Ben Simmons and the Sixers, however, in losing fashion. When the Bucks forward can consistently hit the outside shot at the Center position, things could look really ugly for the opposing teams as it creates an incredible mismatch, opening the lane for the remaining players. Safe to say that if Milwaukee ends the season at top of the Eastern Conference, and Antetokounmpo maintains this ridiculous performances, he’ll be one of the favourites to take home the MVP award.
