The Milwaukee Bucks won the 2021 NBA Championship, and on the night that they were given their championship rings, they looked like a team that was on a mission.
The Bucks crushed the Brooklyn Nets 127-104.
They even had a 19-point lead in the first half, and the game was in their control from start all the way to the finish.
On Wednesday morning, Giannis Antetokounmpo Tweeted out three photos from the game on Tuesday evening, and his post can be seen embedded below from his Twitter account.
The two-time NBA MVP, who also won Finals MVP last season, picked up right where he left off.
He scored 32 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and dished out seven assists in only 31 minutes of game action.
As a team, the Bucks also held All-Star point guard James Harden to under 38% from the field and a -20.
The Bucks will play their next game on Thursday against the Miami Heat on the road, and the Nets will visit the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday looking to rebound from the opening night loss.
