What hyperextended knee? That’s the question the Phoenix Suns are asking after Giannis Antetokounmpo put up an absolutely dominating performance in a must-win Game 3 outing of the NBA Finals for the Milwaukee Bucks.
With the Bucks down 2-0 in the series and hosting their first NBA Finals game in half-century, the Greek Freak had them rocking at Fiserv Forum Sunday evening.
Pretty much from the jump, Giannis Antetokounmpo was on a different planet in comparison to the Suns. One could even say that he was in his own little galaxy — an alien of sorts from an exoplanet.
Giannis dropped 34 points in the first three quarters, including 16 points in the first 12 minutes coming out of the break. That span saw Milwaukee outscore the Suns 38-31 to take a commanding 98-76 lead heading into the fourth. It was something to behold.
