Video: Thunder’s Danilo Gallinari hits the tough fadeaway over Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo to tie the game
Danilo Gallinari has hit some tough shots over the course of his NBA career, but this one might just be one of the most difficult ones yet. With the Oklahoma City Thunder down by three late in the fourth in their thrilling game versus the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday, the Italian forward found himself blanketed by Giannis Antetokounmpo’s swarming defense.
Trapped in the left wing, Gallo made his move and bumped into the reigning MVP, but no foul was called. The contact forced him to stumble backwards, as Gallinari managed to kept his footing and gathered his steps at the top of the key.
He launched a ridiculous fadeaway trey over the outstretched arms of Antetokounmpo and tied the ball game at 114 apiece with 32.2 ticks remaining in regulation.

Gallinari finished with 14 points, seven boards, and three assists, as the Thunder fell to 4-6.
