Giannis brushes off MVP talk, but wants to be NBA's best player

Giannis Antetokounmpo dismisses MVP talk: 'I don't know if I'm there yet'

The race for the NBA's MVP got a little bit fiercer Wednesday night as the Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo took on James Harden and the Rockets.

In a relatively short period of time, Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo has established himself as one of the best players in today's National Basketball Association.

Antetokounmpo scored 27 points, claimed a career-high 21 rebounds and provided five assists at Toyota Center on Wednesday.

Antetokounmpo and Harden will be duking it out for MVP the rest of the season.

"Hell no, I didn't see it coming", Harden said.

Several railway lines in the Alps were closed because of the snow, and schools were closed in parts of Bavaria. The school has reopened today and will be open next week for any students in need of counselling or support.

Harden continued his unconscious stretch over the last month, pouring in 42 points along with 11 boards and six assists in the defeat.

"I was like 'oh my bad.' I told him obviously, when we were running down the floor", Antetokounmpo told reporters. "He does it in so many ways".

Antetokounmpo didn't want any part of a discussion about how the MVP race was shaping up as the National Basketball Association season's midway point nears. Those debates about whether or not Harden is the best offensive player ever aren't out of line, not when you consider the way he generates offense for himself and his teammates. "And (becoming the league's best player is) going to take care of itself". He's all over the court constantly. "He's definitely [elite], just the way he impacts the game".

The Rockets led by six points at the half, but the Bucks took the lead with a monster third quarter in which they outscored Houston 38-23. "I don't know if I'm there yet, but I'm going to do whatever it takes to get there, because that's what I want to be".

"I didn't even know what happened", Harden said.
