Giannis Antetokounmpo reminded everyone why he should be MVP of the NBA this season, putting up 52 points and 16 rebounds on Sunday, which turned out to be a Bucks loss to the Sixers.
Joel Embiid scored 40 points himself, leading Philly to a 130-125 win.
The 50-point performance by Giannis marked the 11th different player this season to score at least 50 in a game, which sets a league record.
Per the @NBA:
Giannis is the 11th player to score at least 50 points in a game in the 2018-19 season, breaking the NBA single-season record.
The previous record of 10 players with 50-point games was set in the 2016-17 season and matched in the 2017-18 season.
