Giannis Antetokounmpo fires a three-pointer while Gordon Hayward looks on, awestruck.
The Bucks fell to the Jazz 96-87 last night in a battle of the league’s two worst teams. Well, at least at the time. As of Friday afternoon, the 11-24 Jazz have leapfrogged New York and Orlando for the right to call themselves the NBA’s fourth-worst team. An elusive title, and one I’m certain the folks out in Salt Lake City are proud of.
While Milwaukee dodged a bullet and avoided its first winning streak of the season (the only NBA team without consecutive victories), Giannis Antetkounmpo posted a quiet 10 points, seven rebounds and five assists in 34 minutes. The rookie started his eighth straight game and is averaging 10 points and 6.3 boards since entering the starting lineup.
