Giannis Dunking Over Durant Is The Best Way To Start a Game
Milwaukee Bucks had one of their biggest games of the year when they took on the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday afternoon. I got a weird sign that this game would go well for the Bucks. That sign was a picture on Facebook of a deer running down an empty street on Prospect. It felt like the old Bucks intro that featured a robot deer running through the City of Milwaukee. Milwaukee won the game, 117-114, with a dominating performance by Giannis Antetokounmpo scoring 49 points. He led off the game with a huge dunk over Kevin Durant which is a great statement.

This is an awesome dunk. This is an ‘I’m not here to fuck around, you might be.’ Antetokounmpo dominated the rest of the way. He outdueled Durant. I know he told Rachel Nichols after the game that this isn’t a back-and-forth, but let’s be real here. Antetokounmpo went at Durant’s throat. He has a ton of respect for KD. It’s his favorite player that isn’t himself. What a game from Giannis.
