MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Bucks are nearly halfway through their 2018-2019 season, and to this point Giannis Antetokounmpo has proven to be the best player in the NBA's Eastern Conference.

For a second straight month, the Greek Freak has claimed Eastern Conference Player of The Month after averaging a double-double with 25.6 points per game, 12.5 rebounds and 6.2 assists. Despite all of his astounding statistics, the only thing that matters is that the Bucks still hold the best record in the NBA at 26-10. The team finished December with a 10-4 record.

Antetokounmpo also leads the conference in All-Star votes, trailing only LeBron James for most votes overall. To vote for the reigning player of the month and well-deserving teammates, click here.

The Bucks have back-to-back games at Fiserv Forum this weekend, beginning today at 7 p.m. against Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks and Saturday against Kawhi Leonard's Toronto Raptors. The Raptors hold the league's second-best record, making that a game you will not want to miss.
