Giannis Antetokounmpo - Team Giannis

After the first half and even into the third quarter, it felt like maybe Team Giannis was going to run away with this one. That's because the Greek Freak scored a lot of points and was on pace to win MVP. Despite Team LeBron's comeback, Giannis had another great game. He finished with 38 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, and a steal in the loss.
