Giannis Adetokunbo’s 24 Points Can’t Save Milwaukee In NBA Loss

Milwaukee Bucks of America sensation, Giannis Adetokunbo (Antetokounmpo) notched 24 points on the night, but his haul was not good enough to save his side from losing at home against New York Knicks in USA’s National Basketball Association (NBA).

Megasportsarena.com reports that, despite ‘The Greek Freak’ stomping to another sensational outing, New York Knicks, led by Julius Randle’s 32-point double-double, won their game away in Milwaukee against the defending champions.

Antetokounmpo failed to save the game for The Bucks, on the same night fellow-Nigerian-born ace, Andre Iguodala’s Golden State Warriors fantastic run continued on an exciting Saturday night of NBA action.

Julius Randle had 32 points and 12 rebounds and New York Knicks overcame an early 21-point deficit and beat Milwaukee Bucks 113-98.

Derrick Rose had 23 points off the bench, and RJ Barrett added 20 to help The Knicks stun the defending NBA champions on their home court, while Antetokounmpo scored 25 points for Milwaukee and Grayson Allen had a season-high 22.

Milwaukee made four 3-pointers out of the gate and made eight long-range shots overall to take a 38-17 advantage after one quarter. New York was 3 of 16 from 3-point range in the first quarter.

The Knicks cut The Bucks’ lead to five points by the midpoint of the second quarter and trailed 63-56 at the half, following which the team from New York stayed close throughout the third quarter and eventually tied it at 80 with 2:14 left.

That proved key as the visiting team was then able to push on in the fourth to move to 6-3 for the season so far, whilst the Bucks are 4-5, much to the dismay of Antetokounmpo. Bimbo Adeola
