Giannis Wards Off LaMelo & Young’s Near Triple-Double Strides Hawks

The Charlotte Hornets and Milwaukee Bucks played to a tense conclusion on Wednesday night. It was also disappointing to see one of the two teams lose. Because of the contributions of their best players, in particular. After the game, Giannis and LaMelo switched jerseys since they were so terrific and had such mutual respect. It was well-deserved. With just 5.9 seconds remaining on the clock, LaMelo Ball, who finished the game with 36 points, sank a three-pointer to tie the game at 125 apiece.

However, the Bucks were at home and still had an ace of their own up their sleeve in the form of the Greek Freak. He would drive to the basket hard and make the winning layup with two ticks remaining, handing the Bucks a hard-earned 127-125 win. All in all, he finished with 40 points and 12 rebounds and was an assist shy of a triple-double for the hosting Bucks’ eighth straight win. Elsewhere, Trae Young also came quite close to recording a triple-double as his Atlanta Hawks outlasted the Indiana Pacers 114-111 behind their magician. Young had 33 points and ten assists and lacked just two rebounds to match Giannis’ feat on the night. But the win, which is their eighth from their last nine outings, is the most important thing to them and a fine consolation prize. The Pacers 27 from Malcolm Brogdon in the loss and also saw Domantas Sabonis provide a double-double with 22 points and ten boards.
