Yep, he’s that good folks. In what was a back and forth affair, the Milwaukee Bucks took down the Portland Trailblazers 113-110 behind a career night from Giannis Antetokounmpo. Milwaukee entered halftime tonight with a five-point lead, 60-55, with Giannis netting an absurd 21 points alone. The second half didn’t see either team pull ahead by a considerable margin, but when the Blazers closed Milwaukee’s lead late, Giannis was there to ensure they didn’t face back-to-back losses at home.

The basketball was good tonight, folks.

Led for the second straight game by Blake Griffin, the Los Angeles Clippers stayed perfect tonight and improved their record to 2-0 as they absolutely crushed the Phoenix Suns, 130-88. Griffin didn’t play in the fourth quarter with the result decided, and finished with 29 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists in 28 minutes. He was a hyper-efficient 7-13 from the field and 3-5 from beyond the arc, while converting 12 of his 14 free throw attempts. DeAndre Jordan played his role well, with 6 points and 13 rebounds.

If you were expecting the Warriors to come out of the gates firing after losing their season opener, well . . . that didn’t exactly happen. The Dubs looked sloppy and unfocused in the opening minutes against an energetic New Orleans Pelicans team.
