VIDEO: Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo puts Nazr Reid on the floor and hits the circus and-1
Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Jarrett Culver made his presence felt with a poster dunk on Milwaukee Bucks center Robin Lopez that saw him receive a technical for trash talk. It did not take long for forward Giannis Antetokounmpo to add some insult to injury.
Antentokounmpo issued some payback by dropping center Nazr Reid with a crossover en rout to finishing the play with an and-1.

Not only did the play help get some revenge for Lopez for the previous possession just minutes earlier, it also helped swing the momentum back into the Bucks’ favor. Fortunately, Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks were able to get the ultimate revenge by escaping with a clutch 106-104 win.
The reigning MVP was nothing short of spectacular in this one after scoring 32 points on 13-of-22 shooting from the field to go with 17 rebounds and two blocks. More importantly, his efforts have helped the Bucks get a winning streak going while he continues to show signs of progress in his overall game.
In the absence of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins, Shabazz Napier led the Timberwolves with 22 points, six rebounds and three assists, though his production was clearly not enough to overcome the NBA’s top team.
