The Bucks have found a bit of an offensive groove of late, in part because they have put the ball in the hands of Giannis Antetokounmpo more (and out of the hands of Michael Carter-Williams). Going up against the Lakers’ defense gave the Bucks the chance to build on that newfound confidence.
They did. And Giannis Antetokounmpo put on a little show with the dunk of the night.
The Bucks won 108-101 in a game where they led by 28 early in the fourth quarter, but the Lakers bench made a run to make it at least interesting late. Antetokounmpo finished with 27 points and had a triple-double in the win.
