Averaging 30.7 points, 12.3 rebounds and 6.1 assists during the month of February, Giannis Antetokounmpo is attempting to force his way back into the MVP conversation.

Against Memphis, the 26-year-old continued his climb in the Bucks' record books, passing Hall of Famer Sidney Moncrief to move into third on the franchise scoring list.

Antetokounmpo topped Moncrief's 11,594 points in just his 563rd game with the franchise, 132 fewer than the Bucks' star from the 1980's.

Next on the list for Giannis will be the No.1 overall pick from the 1994 draft, Glenn Robinson. Spending eight seasons in Milwaukee, Robinson tallied 12,010 points in 568 appearances. On current pace, Antetokounmpo would move into second place before the end of this season, leaving only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on 14,211 points for the franchise record.
