Giannis Antetokounmpo dominated with 29 points and soared for an emphatic alley-oop slam as the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Indiana Pacers.
Antetokounmpo’s game-high haul came on 10-of-17 shooting and allowed the Bucks to cruise to a 118-98 victory that snapped their two-game losing streak and extended their lead over the Toronto Raptors at the top of the Eastern Conference to three games.
Antetokounmpo was at his dominant best, spinning his way into the paint to unleash his familiar array of dunks and finger rolls at the rim.
With the Bucks leading 110-92 with 2:25 remaining in the game, Antetokounmpo produced his highlight play of the night.
Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe exchanged passes with center Brook Lopez before dribbling into the paint. As three Pacers defenders converged, he lofted a teasing lob pass close over them.
Leading MVP contender Antetokounmpo needed no second invitation, advancing into the paint before elevating to power home a two-handed alley-oop slam.
