The Milwaukee Bucks came into Game 3 ready to play after an embarrassing 39-point loss in Game 2 against the Brooklyn Nets. Giannis Antetokounmpo had to set the tone and did just that early on as he attacked the Nets and dropped a massive hammer on Blake Griffin.

Giannis and the Bucks jumped out to an early 9-0 lead and extended it to 16-4 before Griffin hit a three-pointer. The Bucks came out firing and Giannis took the shoulder of the load to get the Bucks fans hyped up early on in Game 3 in Milwaukee.
After a brutal loss in Game 2, it is refreshing to see Giannis and Milwaukee come out aggressive. He then added another dunk, getting the crowd up on their feet and wild with nearly 16,000 fans in attendance for their biggest game of the season and an essential must-win to avoid going down 3-0.

The Bucks kept attacking, led by two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, and shocked the Nets early on. Coming back from a 3-0 deficit is nearly impossible as no NBA team in history has ever done it. so Milwaukee knows how important this game is as they hope to inch one step closer to tying up the series. So far so good for Milwaukee.
Oh, and one more hammer for Giannis as the Bucks went into the 2nd quarter up big.
