Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo Talks Big Win Over Clippers



Giannis Antetokounmpo

Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo is feeling pretty good following Sunday night’s big win over the Western Conference powerhouse Los Angeles Clippers in a game that saw Antetokounmpo take over to close out the game.

Antetokounmpo finished with 36 points, 14 rebounds, 5 assists, a steal and four blocked shots for Milwaukee, but is was his work on the defensive end of the court against Clippers’ Ivac Zubac and Kawhi Leonard that made the difference.

“It was individual pride. It is pride. It is an ego thing. Personally, I love that going down the stretch. I feel like it’s greatness,” Antetokounmpo said after the game, according to ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk. “When you go against the best in the world down the stretch and you are trying to get a stop and they are trying to score on you to win the game, it’s greatness developing at that moment.”

“You gotta give them credit though,” Leonard said. “They locked in and tuned in on us, and they got stops when they needed it.”

Milwaukee is currently riding a five-game winning streak, and their big win against an elite team like the Clippers is showing that they are ready to compete with the likes of the Brooklyn Nets and the Philadelphia 76ers atop the Eastern Conference.
