Giannis Antetokounmpo returns with impact as Bucks outlast Nets

Posted : 22 March 2024

Giannis Antetokounmpo made a triumphant return from injury, contributing 21 points to the Milwaukee Bucks' 115-108 victory over the Brooklyn Nets. The two-time NBA Most Valuable Player had missed the previous two games due to a hamstring issue, but his presence on the court proved pivotal in securing the win for his team.


Damian Lillard emerged as a standout performer for the Bucks, showcasing his defensive prowess with crucial steals in the final quarter, earning praise from Milwaukee coach Doc Rivers for his stellar performance throughout the game.


With less than five minutes remaining and the score tied at 96-96, Lillard's defensive heroics came to the fore as he intercepted the ball from Brooklyn guard Cam Thomas, initiating a swift counter-attack that culminated in a pivotal three-pointer by Antetokounmpo.


Lillard's impact continued as he orchestrated another steal, this time setting up a three-pointer for Malik Beasley, effectively thwarting the Nets' late rally and cementing the Bucks' victory. Despite the Nets' resilience, the Bucks' defensive resilience and clutch plays down the stretch proved decisive in securing the win.


Meanwhile, in other NBA action, reigning champions the Denver Nuggets leveled with Western Conference leaders the Oklahoma City Thunder following a commanding 113-100 win over the New York Knicks. Michael Porter Jr. led the charge with 31 points, while Nikola Jokic recorded his 22nd triple-double of the season, tallying 30 points, 14 rebounds, and 11 assists.


Additionally, Luka Doncic propelled the Dallas Mavericks to a 113-97 victory over the Utah Jazz, contributing 34 points to secure their third consecutive win, while Lauri Markkanen and Collin Sexton led the scoring for the Jazz, who suffered their fourth consecutive defeat.
