The Milwaukee Bucks have been dominating the Chicago Bulls in the first half of Game 4 today. But the surprise hero of the game thus far has been Grayson Allen.

The former Duke star had 16 points in the first half. He had only 12 games with that many points in the regular season.

Allen was 4-5 from three and 6-8 overall in the first half. He's on pace for the highest three-point percentage of his entire season.

Naturally, basketball fans have been blown away by how well he's playing so far. The trash talk is rising and people are comparing Allen to some of the all-time greats thanks due to his performance over the past six quarters.

It's been a long and winding road for Grayson Allen in his NBA career to say the least. The Duke legend found NBA minutes hard to come by in his first two seasons and has played for three teams in four years.

But he has found a comfortable spot with the Bucks since joining them via a trade last summer. He's gotten more minutes and starts than ever before and rewarded the reigning NBA champions with career-highs in nearly all categories.

Now he's proving his worth to the Bucks where it really counts: The playoffs. After scoring three points in his first two games against the Chicago Bulls, he now has 38 points over the last six quarters of basketball.

Will the 2022 NBA playoffs be the coming out party for Grayson Allen as a bonafide star shooting guard?
