Giannis Antetokounmpo misses dunk/passes to open teammate for 3-pointer (video)


Giannis Antetokounmpo was juiced for the Bucks’ first Christmas game in 41 years.

Early in Milwaukee’s win over the Knicks, Antetokounmpo jumped well over the rim and missed a dunk — but fired the ball right to Malcolm Brogdon, who drilled the corner 3-pointer.

Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

The play was officially scored an Antetokounmpo miss and Brogdon rebound, no assist. That’s the right ruling.¬†Antetokounmpo was definitely attempting to score, not pass.

But I’m all for¬†Antetokounmpo trying to dunk on an 11-foot rim. It working out for the Bucks is karmic justice.
