WASHINGTON -- Giannis Antetokounmpo was simply too much for the Wizards.
The phenom known as the Greek Freak scored 27 and cornered 20 rebounds to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a convincing 104-95 win over the host Wasington Wizards at the Verizon Center.
While Antetokounmpo carried a heavy load for Milwaukee, it was far from a one-man show. Point guard Eric Bledsoe finished with 23 points while Kris Middleton had 19 and Malcolm Brogdon, last season's Rookie of the Year winner, registered 16 points and 4 assists.
All-Star John Wall tried to stem the Bucks tide but he missed 15 of 22 field goals to settle with 27 and nine assists. Bradley Beal and Kelly Oubre Jr. chipped in 19 apiece.
"He was all over the floor tonight. That's the things we need from him, night in night out," Bledsoe told ESPN as the Bucks improved to 23-20 to stay in seventh place in the Eastern Conference. The Wizards dropped to 25-19, but they stayed in fifth place in the East.
