His performance in the month of November was dominant...to say the least.

In the least surprising news of the day, Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo was selected as the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Month for November.

Giannis averaged an absurd 30.9 points, 13.4 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.4 blocks per contest. He also converted on 56% of his shots form the floor while making 26 three-pointers.

The Bucks went 15-1 in November, with the lone loss coming against the Utah Jazz on a buzzer-beater on the road.

Antetokounmpo avenged the loss to Utah by piling up 50 points, 14 rebounds, and six assists in Milwaukee’s 122-118 victory over the Jazz on November 25. He made 17-of-31 shots in that dominating performance #EfficiencyGod.

Luka Doncic was named the Western Conference Player of the Month, making it the first time in NBA history that two European players won this award. That’s pretty neat!
