How did Giannis Antetokounmpo, Eric Bledsoe do in their return to the Milwaukee Bucks?

The Milwaukee Bucks earned a 123-102 victory over the Chicago Bulls but more importantly, two of their key players returned to the lineup.

Starting point guard Eric Bledsoe had missed the last eight games with a slight fracture in his leg - the Bucks went 6-2 in that span.

Reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo missed two games with a back injury that he suffered in Milwaukee's Christmas Day loss to the Philadelphia 76ers - the Bucks went 2-0 without him.

They both resumed their usual spots in the starting lineup in today's win and had a great showing in doing so.

Antetokounmpo showed no signs of a back injury, going for 23 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in 28 minutes.

And this dunk that sent Milwaukee's bench into a frenzy was just reassurance that The Greek Freak had no limitations due to that back injury.

As for Bledsoe, you would have never guessed he missed several weeks with a minor leg fracture.

In a limited 17 minutes of playing time, Bledsoe went for 15 points, four steals, three assists and three rebounds shooting an efficient 5-for-8 from the field. He also was a team-best +/- of plus-26, an impressive feat in the short period of time he was on the floor.

As if their 30-5 record isn't impressive enough, the Bucks are 24-3 in games that they have both Antetokounmpo and Bledsoe in the lineup.
