It was a nail biting game three at the NBA Eastern Conference finals between the Milwaukee Buck and the Atlanta Hawks, but the Bucks managed to clinch the win in the final minutes of the match.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and teammate Khris Middleton combined for 71 points bringing their team to victory ending on 113-102.
Antetokounmpo carved out a good chunk of the final score, finishing with 33 points and 11 rebounds in front of the crowd of 16,600 at State Farm Arena in Georgia.
The Bucks now lead 2-1 in the best-of-seven series.
After a shaky start to the previous games, Antetokounmpo regained confidence with his free throws in game two.
Thriving under the pressure to perform, the basketballer scored 25 points with nine rebounds and six assists.
The ‘Greek Freak’ made significant improvements, making three of four free throws and avoided violations of the 10-second rule in the Bucks’ 125-91 win that evened the series at 1-1.
Thanasis Antetokounmpo also had the opportunity to join his brother on the court in extra time during the match.
