Two days, two impressive performances for the youngest Buck of all.
A day after scoring 14 points on six shots in a comeback win over Serbia, Giannis Antetokounmpo was at it again for Greece at the U-20 European Championships, this time scoring 20 points on 13 shots (5/13 fg, 4/9 threes, 6/7 ft) to go with two boards, two assists, two blocks and three steals in Greece's 65-56 win over Germany.
Through two games, he's now made 6/11 threes while turning it over just once and committing three fouls, compared to 10 fouls drawn. Unfortunately, you'd barely know from the FIBA video highlights above that Giannis played--the only real glimpse of him is a nice pass he makes for a lay-up around the 50 second mark. C'mon FIBA, get it together. Bucks nation needs its Giannis fix. Giannis and company close out group play against Georgia on Friday and Lithuania on Saturday.
Larry Drew will be flying to Estonia to see Antetokounmpo up close next week, while assistant Bob Bender will lead the Bucks' summer league squad in Vegas. John Henson and the rest of the summer league squad is practicing at the Cousins Center ahead of this weekend's first games in Vegas, and Jim Paschke reports that Henson is taking on a new role in his second summer as a Buck: leader.
