Doncic calls Antetokounmpo ‘the best player in the NBA right now’
It was a matchup of two of the NBA’s top five players and two guys high in the way-too-early mix for MVP this season: Giannis Antetokounmpo and Luka Doncic.
Doncic carried the Mavericks again with 27 points on 10-of-20 shooting plus 12 assists.
Antetokounmpo was a force of nature with 30 points on 11-of-19 shooting plus 11 rebounds, plus he had more help around him leading the Bucks to a 124-115 win.
There is a mutual admiration society between these two players, and after the game Doncic called Antetokounmpo the best player in the NBA. Via Jack Maloney at CBS Sports.
Antetokounmpo had praise for Doncic as well.
We have many years of these two players testing each other, and someday it may be Antetokounmpo calling Doncic the best in the NBA.
