‘It only scored 7 points…’ The influence of the Greek monster that led to Milwaukee’s victory￼
Antetokounmpo’s influence is growing.
The Milwaukee Bucks won 114-105 in a game against the Atlanta Hawks in the 2022-2023 NBA regular season held at the Atlanta State Farm Arena on the 12th (hereinafter Korean time).
Cruz Halladay and Brooke Lopez each had 27 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists, and 20 points and 12 rebounds, respectively. The performance of Giannis Antetokounmpo, a Greek monster, cannot be left out.
Antetokounmpo had only 7 points and a 30.0% (3/10) success rate on the day. It was a record that obviously did not suit him, who was bombing an average of 31.7 points before the game. However, Antetokounmpo showed off his extraordinary presence by adding 18 rebounds and 10 assists.
As soon as the game started, Milwaukee scored a 13-0 scoring run with a shower of 3-pointers from Pat Connorton and Holliday. Thanks to this, Milwaukee finished the first half with a 21-point lead.
However, Milwaukee struggled with Atlanta’s fierce counterattack from the third quarter. Milwaukee could not control Atlanta’s outside shot and allowed a 7-point chase.
At the moment of crisis, Antetokounmpo stepped forward. Antetokounmpo actively participated in the rebound and put pressure on Atlanta. In addition, he accumulated 4 assists in the 4th quarter alone by playing to save his teammates’ chances.
Milwaukee head coach Mike Budenholzer applauded Antetokounmpo for his versatility in an interview after the game.
Coach Budenholzer praised him, saying, “I think Giannis Antetokounmpo trusted his teammates. He made a lot of great plays. Antetokounmpo did not overdo it and showed his will and competitiveness in offensive rebounds.”
Milwaukee, one of the strongest contenders for the championship, boasted overwhelming destructive power by winning 9 straight wins right after the season.
But midway through the season, Milwaukee started to falter. Chris Middleton, one of the Big 3, left due to injury, and the balance collapsed. 바카라사이트
Even so, Antetokounmpo did not collapse. He always supported Milwaukee by contributing to the team in various ways.
Milwaukee’s next schedule is to face the Miami Heat on the 13th. It’s an away back-to-back game, but Milwaukee fans firmly believe that Antetokounmpo will deliver another victory.
