The triple-doubles just keep on coming for Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, who put up his fourth of the season on Sunday night.

In one of the most impressive all-around performances of his young career, "The Greek Freak" scored a game-high 28 points on 12-of-16 shooting, grabbed 11 rebounds, and dished out a career-best 14 assists in 40 minutes of action as Milwaukee won its third game in a row, defeating the Brooklyn Nets 109-100 at the Barclays Center.

With his fourth triple-double, Antetokounmpo becomes the first Bucks player in franchise history to record four or more in one campaign.

With Michael Carter-Williams out for the remainder of the regular season after undergoing hip surgery, Antetokounmpo has taken on more responsibility as a facilitator and playmaker, which shows in his rising assist numbers.

Over the last 12 games, the 21-year-old is averaging 20.3 points, 9.5 rebounds, 8.2 assists, two steals, and 1.9 blocks on 50.5 percent shooting.
