In his first prep game with the Bucks for this upcoming season, Giannis Antetokounmpo was solid with 19 points, seven rebounds, and two assists in 21 minutes of action, but he was not enough for the win.

The Hawks beat the Bucks 123-113 playing without still-injured Serb guard Bogdan Bogdanovic. Newcomer Dejounte Murray with 25 points was the top scorer of the winning side, while also adding nine assists and eight rebounds. Swiss big man Clint Capela had five points and four rebounds.

For the Bucks, aside from the Greek Freak’s performance, his brother Thanasis added two rebounds in limited minutes, while Georgian center Sandro Mamukelashvili had five points.

Veteran Spanish-Congolese big man Serge Ibaka with 15 points and seven rebounds stole the show.
