Giannis Antetokounmpo pulls off sick Euro-step over Kyle Lowry, Marc Gasol
Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo is continuously adding more highlights to the 2019 NBA Playoffs. Antetokounmpo had a sick move in Game 3 of the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals, showing how hard he is to stop in the open court.
Trying to bring the Bucks back into the game, Giannis did not hesitate to attack both Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol in transition, pulling off a double Euro-step to evade both defenders for a layup. Raptors defenders felt that it was not a legal move and asked for a traveling call, but the referees saw it otherwise.

The referees made the right call here, too. Giannis Antetokounmpo clearly only takes two full steps to the rim after gathering his dribble; it just seems like there were more because he’s so incredibly long and coordinated.
Antetokounmpo has become matchup nightmare for all teams this season, helping the Bucks become one of the favorites to win the title. He is giving the Raptors a lot of headache, as he is averaging 27.0 points and 15.5 rebounds in the series. He is also posting 5.5 assists, 2.5 blocks, and 1.5 steals per game.
The Bucks manhandled the Raptors in Game 2 on Friday, cruising to a 125-103 win. Giannis led the way for Milwaukee with 30 points, 17 rebounds, five assists, two blocks, and a steal. The win put them two wins away from clinching a spot in the 2019 NBA Finals, where they will likely meet the defending champions Golden State Warriors.
