Giannis breaks Bucks' assists mark, leaves with wrist injury, out for remainder of game

CHICAGO (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo broke the Milwaukee Bucks' career assists record Thursday night against the Chicago Bulls.

The two-time MVP came in needing two assists to break Paul Pressey's record of 3,272 from 1982 to 1990.

Antetokounmpo also is the Bucks' career leader in blocks, triple-doubles, free throws made, free throws attempted and minutes.

Antetokounmpo matched the assist mark when he fed Brook Lopez for a 3-pointer two minutes into the game and broke it when he passed to Jevon Carter for another 3 that bumped Milwaukee's lead to 19-10 in the first quarter.

Giannis played in just nine minutes before going out with a wrist injury.

He tried to block Coby White's shot and fell into the stanchion.

He is out for the remainder of the game with a right wrist sprain.
