MILWAUKEE-- Milwaukee Bucks' star Giannis Antetokounmpo is the Eastern Conference Player of the Week after another incredible week in February.

Antetokoumpo averaged 28.5 points, 16.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 1 block a game over the four game stretch this week. What may have put him over the top was his first career 40-20 game on Sunday as he scored 41 points, 20 rebounds, and 6 assists in the 93-85 win over the Hornets. He is the first Bucks player since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to have a 40-20-5 game. 

This is the fourth time Giannis has been named Eastern Conference Player of the Week this season and the 13th of his young career. He has also won every Eastern Conference Player of the Month award dating back to January of 2019. 

The first week of March brings a huge stretch of games for the Bucks as they head to South Beach to face the Heat, then host the Pacers on Wednesday, and end the week with a West Coast trip against the Lakers on Friday night and Suns on Sunday.
