Giannis Antetokounmpo believes fans take the level of his game for granted, though it is not something he has a problem with.

The Milwaukee Bucks forward scored 33 points in a 118-104 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday, which extended the team's winning streak to 15 matches.

Antetokounmpo returned for the game after missing Sunday's win over the Phoenix Suns due to a quad injury, having also dealt with a wrist injury during the All-Star break.

His return saw his highest points total since a haul of 36 against the Boston Celtics in mid-February and he feels supporters take his performances for granted.

"Yes. And it's okay. I don't think I'm the first, I don't think I'm the last," he replied when asked if felt that was the case.

"I feel like people take for granted Kevin Durant, people take for granted LeBron James, people take for granted Stephen Curry. You see all this greatness every day and they take it for granted until they're not there no more.

"And you're like, 'Oh, man. I miss those guys. I miss the show that they put on.' It's okay.

"As I said, I'm not the first. I'm not going to be the last. I just got to keep on going out there, enjoying the game of basketball.

"Because when I stop enjoying the game of basketball, the game is done. I got to keep on enjoying, keep on building, keep on trying to win games.

"I can't control what other people think. If they take it for granted, I can't control that, I don't take it for granted.

"When I go out there I try to give everything that I have – four minutes, five minutes that I played against Chicago, that's all I had.

"The All-Star Game when I played 10 seconds, that's all I had. Against Miami at home, I don't know how much I played, that's all I had.

"Today, I played 30 minutes, that's all I had. If I keep on giving everything I have, and I know I don't take it for granted, I'm okay with that. If other people take it for granted, it's their opinion, their mindset, it's okay."
