Antetokounmpo finished with 19 points (7-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, five assists, and one block over 29 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers. It was a solid outing for Antetokounmpo in his season finale as the lanky youngster filled out the stat sheet and shot an efficient clip. With news breaking that third-year forward will play point guard and times next season, owners should get used to this balanced performance, especially in the assist department. He'll be an intriguing asset for next season.
Antetokounmpo had 27 points (8-12 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal, and one block across 27 minutes during the Bucks' 124-109 loss to the Celtics on Friday. Antetokounmpo did most of his damage early, but he committed five fouls and five turnovers before sitting out the fourth quarter of a blowout loss. Nevertheless, Antetokounmpo has developed into one of the best players in fantasy as the year closes, and Sunday's showdown with the 76ers should provide the opportunity for him to post yet another triple-double.
Antetokounmpo scored a career-high 34 points (14-22 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-7 FT) while adding nine assists, five rebounds, a steal and a block in 43 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Bulls. In addition to the distribution duties that allowed him to average 7.2 assists a game in March, Antetokounmpo was given a bigger scoring role Sunday with Khris Middleton (thigh) sidelined, and he took full advantage. The third-year player has enjoyed a breakout campaign, but Antetokounmpo may still only be scratching the surface of his ultimate upside.
Antetokounmpo scored 18 points (5-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 8-11 FT) and added 11 rebounds, 11 assists, three blocks, and two steals across 39 minutes during the Bucks' 113-110 win over the Magic on Friday. Antetokounmpo is dominating lately with six triple-doubles in the last six weeks. Though the Bucks don't have a chance to make the playoffs, it seems as if the team is still sprinting to the finish line. As long as he is healthy and suiting up, Antetokounmpo is an obvious, must-start option across all fantasy formats.
Bucks coach Jason Kidd said Tuesday that the team intends to keep Antetokounmpo in a primary ball handling role long-term, CF Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. After the All-Star break, the Bucks began using Antetokounmpo as their de facto point guard following an injury to the inconsistent Michael Carter-Williams. Antetokounmpo's production quickly skyrocketed, and he's posted averages of 18.5 points, 7.3 assists and 8.8 rebounds in 20 games since the break. Prior to All-Star Weekend, Antetokounmpo was averaging 15.9 points, 2.8 assists and 7.1 rebounds (52 games). The massive jump in assists is, of course, the most glaring difference, and Antetokounmpo is averaging a triple-double every five games since the All-Star break. The problem, though, is Milwaukee hasn't shown much improvement as a team since shifting Antetokounmpo on the ball, and it enters Wednesday's game against the Suns riding a five-game losing streak. Still, declaring Antetokounmpo the team's point guard going forward offers a sense of direction as the Bucks head into the offseason with a lottery pick and money to spend in free agency.
