Video: Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo pulls off sweet 360-degree layup
Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks dropped their Friday night contest against the Phoenix Suns, 114-116. But they gave their best to fight off the visitors, who just earned their fourth win of the season.
They were down by eight points, 108-100, with six minutes to go, yet they did not lose their composure and launched a 13-0 run. Sadly they could not capitalize on their momentum and allowed the Suns to steal one away from them at home.
During the scoring spree, the Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo produced another highlight-material play. A 360 Euro step from the Greek resulted in a three-point play which gave his team the lead back with four minutes to go in the game.
Is this a 360 Euro step from Giannis?! How is that even possible? #FearTheDear
