Milwaukee Bucks played on Christmas Day for the first time since 1977. The Bucks were in New York to face the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Giannis Antetokounmpo showed up big in front on the big stage. The Greek Freak scored 30 points to go along with 14 rebounds and 4 steals. Giannis was the first Bucks player to score 30 points on Christmas Day since Kareem Abdul Jabbar.
Khris Middleton fell right on his face shooting 2-12 from the field and only producing 6 points in 29 mins of play. Middleton continues to be inconsistant on and not do himself justice if he hopes to get a big contract on the open market and push the Bucks towards a max deal.
Bucks now return home from Milwaukee to face the New York Knicks again on Thursday from the Fiserv Forum at 7pm.
