Giannis Antetokounmpo-led Milwaukee Bucks become the first team to register 50 victories in the ongoing NBA season as they defeated Devin Booker's Phoenix Suns 116-104 on Tuesday night at the Footprint Center. While the Suns lost their home game, their forward Tony Craig lost a tooth after colliding with the two-time NBA MVP 'Greek Freak'.

The 28-year-old Giannis scored 82 points in his last two NBA matches as he scored 46 against Sacramento Kings on Monday and scored 36 points on Tuesday against the Suns with 11 rebounds and eight assists.

With 8:44 remaining in the third quarter, the Bucks forward attempted to drive into the Suns defense and Tony Craig, who was marking the 6-foot-11 Greek, took a hit to his face and fell on the floor. After taking a closer look at the incident, Craig appeared to lose a tooth following his collision with Giannis.

Earlier on Monday, Bucks defeated Sacramento Kings by nine points and center Brook Lopez was involved in an heated altercation with Kings forward Trey Lyles after the latter shoved Giannis Antetokounmpo. Both, Lopez and Lyles were ejected after their on-court brawl.
