Bucks Secure Sixth Consecutive Victory Despite Absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo: Middleton’s Return Anticipated

Giannis Antetokounmpo, a key player for the Bucks, couldn’t play on Monday due to a sore left Achilles tendon. Despite his absence, the Bucks won against the LA Clippers, making it their sixth consecutive victory. Bucks coach Doc Rivers mentioned that Giannis has been dealing with this problem for a few games now.

Before the game, Giannis went onto the court for his usual warm-up, but he had to stop a few times to stretch his legs. He ended his routine early and went back to the locker room. Rivers commented, “Giannis has been feeling this on and off in the past few games. This morning, he seemed okay… we’ll see how it goes.” Antetokounmpo missed his third game of the season, the first since January 17th. He’s been shooting exceptionally well at 61.9%, averaging 30.8 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 3.4 assists. Additionally, the Bucks didn’t have Khris Middleton, who hurt his ankle on February 6th in Phoenix. Coach Rivers mentioned Middleton’s ankle is getting better, and they’re aiming for his return during the upcoming four-game West Coast trip.

Rivers said Middleton isn’t fully prepared yet, so they won’t rush him. It’s not worth it if he’s not 100%. Damian Lillard scored 41 points and Bobby Portis got 28 points and 16 rebounds from the bench as Milwaukee came back from being 15 points behind in the second half against the Clippers.

This was the fourth time this season that the Bucks came back from being down by 15 points, and it’s the second time since Rivers became the coach.
