Antetokounmpo has been spending a lot of time in the weights room, and all his hard work paid off in this particular play. Not even a 6-foot-10, 260-pound Aron Baynes could stand in the way of Giannis and his appointment with the rim. Talk about upper body strength.
The Bucks came into Wednesday’s matchup against the Raptors in need of a win. Milwaukee lost two of their last three games, including back-to-back losses against two of the top teams in the league today in the Brooklyn Nets and the Los Angeles Lakers. Giannis and Co. followed up those defeats with a much-needed victory against Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday.
For his part, Antetokounmpo is in the midst of another outstanding campaign for the Bucks, putting up averages of 27.0 points (on 54.6 percent shooting), 10.5 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.1 blocks, while also connecting on 1.4 triples per game.
