The two-time MVP is playing like a man on a mission and the mission is to bring his team all the way to the NBA Finals again.
Right now, the Bucks are third in the East with a powerful 24-13 record and Antetokounmpo has been dominant in just about every way yet again.
On Tuesday night, the Greek Freak was, well, freakish, scoring a career-high 55 points via explosive dunks, easy lay-ups, and formative free throws.
His performance was incredible and it’s just part of a trend.

Over the last three games, Antetokounmpo has averaged 47.7 points, 17.3 rebounds, and 6.3 assists a game.
He is now averaging a career high in points so far this season.
Antetokounmpo is once again shining like the bright star that he is: the only other players in the history of the league to create three straight games of 40 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists are Elgin Baylor in 1961 and 1963, Wilt Chamberlain in 1963, and Russell Westbrook in 2016.
What does this mean for the future of the team and his chances at another MVP trophy?
There has been a lot of talk about the Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, and Cleveland Cavaliers lately.
In some ways, Antetokounmpo and his team have been flying under the radar.
They were recently surpassed by the Nets, who are now the second team in the East after an astonishing 12 wins in a row.
But their chances of still making the Finals remain very strong, especially since they were there just a couple of seasons ago and Antetokounmpo is healthy, driven, and committed to playing his heart out.
