Giannis' controversial game-winner lifts Bucks over Thunder

Giannis' controversial game-winner lifts Bucks over Thunder

On the heels of Giannis Antetokounmpo's game-winning bucket, on which the Milwaukee Bucks star stepped on the baseline before finishing a dunk to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder, the NBA's competition committee will add that type of play to the agenda for discussion at its meeting in March, league spokesman Tim Frank said Saturday.

"In any reviewable matter, there has to be a whistle called on the floor", crew chief Derrick Stafford said to pool reporter Brett Dawson of the Oklahoman after the game.

You can clearly see that about his half is out of bounds and you could argue that he traveled on the drive to the hoop too.

The play left the Thunder fuming.

It was a odd end to a wild game. He finished with 23 points 12 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block on 10-of-16 shooting.

"Just getting a win is big", Antetokounmpo said.

Perhaps even more important than his effort on the offensive end of the court was his impact on the defensive side of the ball. There were some things that we needed to do better.

Milwaukee Bucks Game Preview: Dec 29 at Oklahoma City Thunder (read here): Before last night's game, Adam previewed the Bucks' matchup with the in form Oklahoma City Thunder. Obviously, he stepped out of bounds.

After the third quarter, the Bucks led by just six points. Everybody knows that. I didn't get a chance to personally see the replay. I was trying to ask for a review. The referees stopped play to briefly sort out a clock issue, presenting what would certainly seem like an opening to conference with the league's review center and make the correct call. The Bucks' 38 points tied the most by a Thunder opponent in the first quarter this season, matching Toronto, which did so Wednesday.
