Anyone who stayed up late on Thursday night to watch the Milwaukee Bucks take on the Los Angeles Clippers was in for a treat, as Giannis Antetokounmpo rewarded them with one of the best games of his career.

Giannis put on a show against the Clippers, leading the Bucks to a hard-fought 106-105 win at Fiserv Forum. All he did was rack up 54 points and 19 rebounds, scoring and rebounding at will.

The epic performance was just the latest in a historic stretch of huge games for Giannis, who's now tallied at least 33 points and 12 rebounds in five straight games. The two-time MVP is averaging an absurd 42.4 points and 15.2 rebounds per game during that streak, making him the first player in over 40 years to average 42+ points and 15+ rebounds over a five-game span.

Giannis' dominance isn't surprising, as he's typically in a class by himself and has been putting up huge stats all season despite being dogged by a recent knee injury. On top of averaging a career-high 32.3 points per game, he also leads the NBA in rebounding at 12.3 boards per game. After a decade in the NBA, he's still getting better.

The 28-year-old has led the Bucks to the second-best record in the East at 35-17, just two games behind the Boston Celtics. Despite his incredible numbers and team success, Giannis only has the third-best MVP odds on FanDuel Sportsbook's NBA odds (+800), making him a good value pick.
