VIDEO | Giannis Antetokounmpo complete highlights vs. Timberwolves

His statline left plenty to be desired, but Giannis Antetokounmpo's second game as a Buck wasn't short of highlights.

From Dan's recap last night:

Like the dairy section in every grocery store, the thing you all came here for is always the farthest away. Jeremy from Bucksketball called Giannis' outing against the Timberwolves "one of the best 1-6, five fouls, seven turnover games of all time." And he was basically right, considering it was a preseason game and Giannis once again showed flashes of ability that made people shiver. He busted out a beautiful Euro-step layup in transition and made some passes you'd be impressed to see from the NBA's top point guards. But there were also tons of mistakes, including a few more perimeter travels and a pair of miscues on inbound passes. Giannis already looks like a havoc-wreaking weakside defender and a versatile offensive contributor, he just needs a ton of polish. Preseason is a great time to get excited over individual blips of brilliance and ignore the larger truth. Giannis probably hurt the Bucks' chances at winning this game during his time on the floor. But seriously, have you seen this guy?

And about that gorgeous drive and lay-up? We're going to call it a Gyro-Step.
