In a dominant performance on Wednesday, the Milwaukee Bucks showcased their championship credentials ahead of the postseason.

Jrue Holiday delivered a career-high 51 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists, while Giannis Antetokounmpo recorded a triple-double with 38 points, 17 rebounds, and 12 assists in their 149-136 win over the Indiana Pacers.

Despite missing All-Star Khris Middleton, who sat out due to injury, the Bucks didn't struggle to put points on the board, with Brook Lopez contributing 21 points, eight rebounds, and three blocks.

Milwaukee's victory over the Pacers didn't break any records, as the highest-scoring game of the NBA season remains the Sacramento Kings' 176-175 double-overtime win over the Los Angeles Clippers in February.

The Bucks also continued their excellent run of form, improving to 55-21, thanks to a 25-4 run since Jan. 23. They now hold a three-game lead over the second-placed Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference standings, with six games left to play.

With Middleton set to return soon, the Bucks are only going to get stronger, making them a formidable contender in the postseason.

Holiday's offensive dominance came primarily in the paint, where he scored 30 of his 51 points while shooting 20-of-30 from the field and 3-of-6 from beyond the arc, all in just 32 minutes.

Meanwhile, Antetokounmpo's triple-double included an impressive 14-of-18 shooting performance. 

Despite the victory, the Bucks have a challenging schedule ahead, with games against top Eastern Conference rivals, the Boston Celtics, and the Philadelphia 76ers scheduled for Thursday and Saturday, respectively.
