Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 12 points with 5/16 from the field before fouling out with 4:24 to go in second overtime. His off night resulted to a double-overtime loss for the Milwaukee Bucks at the Scotiabank Arena. However, his team is still up 2-1 in the Eastern Conference best-of-seven series versus the Toronto Raptors.

The Greek Freak also had 23 rebounds, seven dimes, four rejections and one steal in 45 minutes of action. After the match, he mentioned: “It wasn’t our best game. They forced some of our errors, but we weren’t focused enough.”

“They were just playing better than us. Whenever we got close, they’d hit some shots and take the lead back to seven or eight” he pointed out and added: “We can get a lot better and for me, that makes me really excited.”

The 24-year-old point forward also talked about Game 4, which will be played again at Toronto: “In Game 4, I’ll try to be more aggressive”. “I never expected it to be easy in Toronto” he admitted.

On his sixth foul: “I didn’t see the replay, but if my feet weren’t in the no-charge semi-circle then I think it was an offensive foul. I can’t focus on that. It didn’t cost us the game.”
