Giannis Antetokounmpo Makes Bucks History After Epic Three

Giannis Antetokounmpo became the Milwaukee Bucks all-time leading scorer after he drained a game-tying three-pointer to force overtime against the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday.

A step back three, too? This is just becoming unfair now.

The Greak Freak surpassed the great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who tallied 14,211 total points in six seasons with the Bucks.

Antetokounmpo now sits atop Milwaukee's all-time scoring leaderboard with 14,216 points after he dropped 44 points in their 120-119 overtime win over Brooklyn. The two-time NBA MVP also added 14 rebounds and six assists.

Antetokounmpo came up clutch both in regulation and overtime. In the extra period, the reigning Finals MVP drained two clutch freethrows to put the Bucks up one with 3.0 seconds remaining.

Milwaukee's defense also came up huge to end the fourth and OT, as Kevin Durant missed both of his opportunities to win Brooklyn the game.

While Antetokounmpo eclipsed Abdul-Jabbar on the Bucks' record books, the six-time All-Star is still ways away from the Hall of Famer's spot as the NBA's all-time leading scorer. Abdul-Jabbar amassed 38,387 points throughout his 20-year NBA career.

Speaking of scoring, Antetokounmpo is still in the hunt of winning his first ever scoring title. His 44 points, however, weren't enough to supplant Lakers star LeBron James from the top of the leaderboard. 

Nonetheless, decimal points only separate The Greek Freak from The King. It's that close.
