MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin — Giannis “The Greek Freak” Antetokounmpo made a driving layup with 1.9 seconds remaining to lift the Bucks over the New York Knicks 92-90 on Friday night in Jabari Parker’s return- the second overall pick of the 2014 draft out of Duke.
“I was able to find the lane,” Antetokounmpo said
Antetokounmpo led all scorers with 29 points to go along with 11 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 blocks and 2 assists. Jabari Parker went 4-of-7 from the field, finishing with 12 points in just 15 minutes of action.
“I was just trying to stay composed, not trying to get carried away,” said Parker, who entered the game to a boisterous ovation. “I was pretty much distracted because I heard the crowd, but had to calm down. Still got to show the people why I’ve been working so hard.”
