Stephen Curry knows what it’s like to be at the bad end of a Giannis Antetokounmpo throwdown. The Golden State Warriors point guard comically laid down on the floor when an incoming Antetokounmpo was running a one-man fast break with bad intentions back during last month’s All-Star Game.
But as much as he hoped he wouldn’t get dunked on during the mid-February festivities, The Greek Freak would have his revenge, coming up with a serious weak-side put-back from the baseline — a dunk Curry didn’t see coming.
Prior to Saturday’s second and last matchup between the Warriors and the Milwaukee Bucks, Curry joked he might have to lay prone on the hardwood if the opportunity arises.
“Actually, if he’s coming down the lane like that I might have to do it again,” he told reporters following Saturday’s shootaround.
Golden State barely edged Milwaukee 124-121 in their Nov. 19 encounter. The Bucks have been on fire as of late, winning eight of their last nine games.
The Warriors are building on a two-game win streak following their five losses in seven games since leading scorer Kevin Durant was sidelined with a knee injury.
