After a period of running-in at the beginning of the season, the top duo of Damian Lillard and Giannis Antetokounmpo has obviously gradually adapted to each other’s style of play.
In the battle against the Mavericks, Antetokounmpo scored 40 points, 15 rebounds and 7 assists, and Lillard also contributed 27 points and 12 assists. Especially in the fourth quarter, the two teamed up to score 25 points, almost tying the opponent. All points in a single quarter led the Bucks to a strong 4-game winning streak.
One data shows that when Lillard scores at least 25 points this season, the Bucks have a record of 7 wins and 0 losses.
On the other hand, Lillard’s total score at critical moments this season (the difference between the two teams is less than 5 points and the game enters the last 5 minutes) is as high as 39 points, ranking first in the league, with a record of 5 wins and 0 losses. This shows his reputation as “Mr. Big Heart”.
“We are building something special, you can feel it. This is an important win, and we need this win when we face critical moments.” Bucks coach Adrian Griffin said.
