Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo drains fadeaway game winner to beat Knicks

8 Comments

Giannis Antetokounmpo is shooting 35.3 percent this season from the area he took this shot.

But this one — the one that matters — dropped.

Antetokounmpo got the ball, worked his way toward the middle, spun over his preferred right shoulder, then put up an unblockable (almost uncontestable) fadeaway over Lance Thomas that gave the Bucks a 105-104 win over the Knicks in Madison Square Garden.

Milwaukee outscored New York 32-17 in the fourth to come from behind for the win. That was the Knicks’ sixth loss in a row. Antetokounmpo finished with 27 points and 13 rebounds for the Bucks. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 30.
