VIDEO | Giannis Antetokounmpo complete highlights vs. Timberwolves

New, comments

A night after registering new career-highs with 16 points and 10 boards in Brooklyn, Giannis Antetokounmpo picked up right where he left off against the Timberwolves on Saturday night. The first five minutes saw a pair of alley-oop slams and another feed for a Larry Sanders oop, marking his best start to a game since entering the starting five a couple weeks back,

Alas, neither Giannis nor the Bucks could sustain that pace over 48 minutes, as the Bucks' phenom added just one more basket--a cut for a scrambling, improvisational lefty slam in the second half. While he was fairly quiet in the scoring department (3/6 fg, 6 pts), he still managed to leave his mark on the box score with five rebounds, four assists, four steal and two blocks. Still, his game-worst -26 differential were indicative of a night that didn't go as hoped, as the Wolves limited his chances and Corey Brewer (5/9 fg, 12 pts) went 3/3 against him on the other end.
