Despite being tackled by Trevor Ariza, Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo was still able to score a layup during Game 2 against the Miami Heat on Monday.
After securing a Game 1 win over the Miami Heat in overtime, the Milwaukee Bucks carried that momentum into Monday night for Game 2. The Bucks scored 46 points alone in the first quarter, while successfully making 15 three-pointers in the first half. Everything was going well for the Bucks, even in the second half.
Following a rebound in the third quarter, guard Jrue Holiday hit star Giannis Antetokounmpo with a long pass on a breakaway. Even with Heat forward Trevor Ariza tackling him to the ground ahead of his layup attempt, Antetokounmpo successfully made the shot. As Ariza got up off the ground, he pushed himself up off Antetokounmpo’s body.
Bucks: Giannis Antetokounmpo makes layup despite tackle from Trevor Ariza
Antetokounmpo’s reaction to Ariza’s antics was priceless. The Heat forward’s actions did not go unnoticed, as he was assessed a flagrant 1 foul following an official review.
The Heat were obviously frustrated with how the game was going. They were down by 26 points at the end of the first quarter, and they watched the Bucks tie the NBA Playoffs record for most three-pointers made in a quarter with 10. Game 2 was essentially over as soon as it started.
If you needed further visual proof that the Bucks were walking away with the “W” on Monday night, look no further than “the Greek Freak” making a layup mid-tackle.
