No one can stop Antetokounmpo.
The Milwaukee Bucks won 107-99 against the Denver Nuggets in the 2022-2023 NBA regular season held at the Milwaukee Fiserv Forum on the 26th (hereinafter Korean time).
Ace’s presence or absence determined the outcome. Milwaukee led the victory with Greek monster Giannis Antetokounmpo flying high. On the other hand, Denver recorded an unfortunate loss without Nikola Jokic playing.
Antetokounmpo’s value was revealed in the fourth quarter.
In the fourth quarter, with an 8-point lead, Milwaukee was briefly shaken by Denver’s pursuit. But Antetokounmpo was not shaken. He tenaciously attacked Denver’s loose goal and scored step by step with free throws. Thanks to this, Milwaukee succeeded in defeating Denver, which ranked first in the Western Conference.
Antetokounmpo’s final record for the day was 33 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals. He made 22 free throws and made 15 of them. It is also surprising that the record was posted by running for only 30 minutes and 48 seconds. 안전놀이터
What is Antetokounmpo’s secret to getting a lot of free throws?
“I tried to get to the rim,” Antetokounmpo said in an interview after the game. “I also tried to be as aggressive as I could and show my strength.”
He added, “I try to enjoy the game. That way I can stand on the free throw line more, save my teammates, and make good plays.”
Captain Mike Malone also acknowledged the failure to control Antetokounmpo.
Malone praised Giannis Antetokounmpo, saying, “The defense is a challenge. He plays really well in transition and in the paint. His ability to get free throws is by far the best in the NBA.”
Antetokounmpo is averaging 13.3 free throws per game this season. A grade that corresponds to your career high in that category. His free throw percentage is rather low at 65.4%. However, continuing to foul to block Adetokounmpo only increases his chances of getting into foul trouble.
