Giannis Antetokounmpo goes 70 feet for a dunk in 2 dribbles and other assorted Vines

We already went through this last year when Giannis Antetokounmpo went nearly the full length of the court — about 80 feet or so — in 3 dribbles in a regular season game last season. Tonight, in the Bucks Las Vegas Summer League debut, he went about 70 feet in just TWO dribbles.

Throw in the fact that he was fouled in the open court on the way down the floor and … wow. Full attack mode. Giannis needs to get better in the halfcourt, as was evidenced tonight, but he’s good enough in transition to make up for it.

Jabari Parker and Antetokounmpo both finished tied with a team-high 17 points.

Here’s Parker bullying his way on a post move in the game’s final moments:

And here are a couple of big-boy finishes in the paint, also by Jabari.

All in all, despite the loss, it was a promising game by the future of the Bucks. Despite losing the game, 70-68, the Bucks finished with 2.5 out of a possible 4 points for winning two quarters and tying in a third.
