Antetokounmpo equals a record from 40 years ago and another from Jordan

“Bestiality” is the term that you can still reach to define what you are doing Giannis Antetokounmpo in the NBA. Both for his actions and for his numbers. Engine of the current champion, the Greek interior, twice MVP, equaled a record in the beating of the Bucks against the Warriors 40 years ago and matched a Michael Jordan mark.

‘Anteto’ recorded 30 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists in his 30 minutes of play against Golden State, becoming the first player from the best league in the world in the last 40 years to sign more than a triple double in 30 minutes or less. The Greek also surpassed his own record, since never had a player needed so little time to achieve 30 points, 12 catches, 11 basket passes and three blocks. It took him 34 minutes to get it in 2018 at his previous mark.

In addition, with this new triple-double, the third of the season, Giannis Antetokounmpo equals in the historical list to Michael Jordan, eighteenth with 28. At the top is Russell Westbrook, with 193 triple-doubles throughout his career.
