Although the Milwaukee Bucks had a thrilling 124-122 overtime victory at Staples Center last night over the Los Angeles Lakers, there was a fair share of rough patches in the game that would make a coach tear his hair out.

Many also noticed that Bucks superstar forward Giannis Antetokounmpo did not get the ball nearly enough down the stretch as he should have, according to Nick Friedell of ESPN.

“Antetokounmpo is too dominant of a player, even on an off night when he was 8-for-20 from the field and struggled to find a rhythm early, to ever go through stretches late in games where he isn't touching the ball. He didn't even have a point, assist or turnover in the final 2:18 in regulation,” Friedell said.

When he was asked whether his Bucks teammates had to do a better job of getting him the ball more often, Antetokounmpo took the high road and praised teammates Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton for their superb performances.

“A better job?” Antetokounmpo said. “I wouldn't say that. I asked for the ball. [Eric] Bledsoe wanted to take a shot and then Khris [Middleton] wanted to take the shot, so I always trust my teammates and if they feel like they can execute in those moments in the game I'm just going to trust them and hopefully they end up well. We got the win, that's all that matters. And I trust my teammates they're going to find me when it matters the most.”

With the way Bledsoe played against the Lakers, it is hard to not give him the ball. Of his game-high 39 points on the night, he scored the first nine points of overtime to give the Bucks just enough to pull out a crucial road victory.
