Things did not start well for the Bucks on Friday night when they traveled to Brooklyn to take on a Nets team embroiled in a “nightmare” season. But Bucks rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo got the better of Kevin Garnett on a swooping drive for the dunk during the third quarter.
The Greek Freak’s 16 points (5-of-12 shooting) and 10 rebounds weren’t enough for the victory after the Bucks fell down big early. The Bucks fell to the Nets, 108-94, in Brooklyn, but Giannis’ length, athleticism and natural verve on the court contain a flicker of hope for a Bucks franchise that’s stuck at the bottom of a terrible Eastern Conference.
How good will Giannis Antetokounmpo be when all is said and done?
