VIDEO: Bucks star Giannis Antetokounnmpo embarrasses Clippers’ Serge Ibaka twice in 1 minute

Bucks, Giannis Antetokounnmpo, Serge Ibaka

Sunday night featured a marquee matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Los Angeles Clippers. As expected, the reigning MVP and Defensive Player of the Year stepped it up when the lights were the brightest, as Giannis Antetokounmpo reminded Clippers big man Serge Ibaka that defending him is never going to be an easy task.

Giannis went at it with Ibaka in a series of plays during the third quarter, which unfortunately for Ibaka, did not end too well for him.

First off, Giannis took on Ibaka in the post. The Bucks superstar forcefully backed Ibaka down before showcasing his tremendous footwork to leave Serge in the dust (h/t ClutchPoints on Twitter):

Barely a minute later, Giannis took it strong to the whole, and as fate would have it, it was Ibaka who ended up on the wrong end of a (semi) poster jam:

The added bonus on the play for Antetokounmpo is Clippers superstar Kawhi Leonard’s attempt to provide some help defense, which ended up being a futile effort from the former Finals MVP.

Antetokounmpo was clearly feeling himself on the evening, and he’ll be hoping that the Bucks are able to carve out a key win here against the mighty Clippers after what has been a rather horrible February for Milwaukee.
