Nets star Kyrie Irving’s savage crossover ends Giannis Antetokounmpo’s brother, Thanasis
The Brooklyn Nets set out to top the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 4 after losing Game 3 on an old-fashioned, defensive-type basketball game where neither side eclipsed 100 points. In the first quarter of Game 4, Nets point guard Kyrie Irving almost ended Thanasis Antetokounmpo– Giannis’ brother’s– life with a filthy, savage crossover.

Unfortunately, Kyrie couldn’t finish the shot but the Nets bench was absolutely hyped with the lethal move by Kyrie. Either way, what a disgusting move by Kyrie, and a made shot more than likely would have had the Nets sideline and bench going absolutely bonkers.
After Game 3 where both teams struggled to score, it looks as if they should have no problem crossing the 100-point threshold.
This is nothing new for Kyrie, who is one of the most dangerous one-on-one players in the NBA and had no business being guarded by Thanasis. The Bucks are riding their momentum from a grind-it-out Game 3 victory, but the Nets got Jeff Green back and are still waiting to see when James James Harden will make his return to the court.
The series heads to Brooklyn after Game 4, and one can only imagine how insane the Barclays Center would have gone if Kyrie did that on their home floor.
