Giannis scores 20 in half to help Bucks to 63-51 lead over Heat

Giannis Antetokounmpo has returned, and so has the Milwaukee Bucks’ offensive flow.

Antetokounmpo recorded 20 points, six rebounds and four assists in 16 first-half minutes as the Bucks took a 63-51 lead at the half at Fiserv Forum.

After missing the last two games with a sprained right ankle, Antetokounmpo came out of the chute quickly, scoring the Bucks’ first 11 points. He scored nine more in the second quarter, including a 3-pointer moments after giving fans a scare by going to the floor holding his ankle again.

He stayed in the game after a timeout and is a huge factor in the Bucks’ shooting 57.1% (24 for 42) in the half.

Antetokounmpo has made 9 of 11 shots.

Khris Middleton has added 12 points to the Bucks’ total.

Kelly Olynyk leads the Heat with 11 points, including two free throws with 0.2 seconds left in the half.
