Two MVP candidates in that of Giannis Antetokounmpo and James Harden are taking on one another Wednesday evening in Houston.

It’s a statement game for the Greek Freak and his Bucks against a Rockets star in Harden who has been in domination mode recently.

With his team up 12 in the fourth quarter, Antetokounmpo attempted to make a pass. It resulted in the ball hitting Harden square in the face.

What’s so funny here is that the Bucks ended up nailing a three-pointer after Harden was dazed. I guess there’s at least one way to stop the leading MVP candidate.

In the end, Milwaukee came out on top with a narrow victory over Harden and the Rockets. Talk about adding insult to injury — almost literally.
