That's exactly what Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant had in mind when he faked Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo out of his shoes on Friday night at BMO Harris Bradley Center. Durant then proceeded to throw down a powerful one-handed dunk with the Bucks' star in his wake.
The Warriors got back on track in the final 12 minutes, though, outscoring Milwaukee 28-12, which helped them avoid losing back-to-back games for the first time in the 2017-18 season. By the end of the first half, Looney ranked second on the team (behind Durant) with a plus-minus of +16 and had contributed six points, a pair of assists and four offensive rebounds.
The Bucks hit seven of their first 10 shots in the third quarter. Its usually precise three-point shooting was lacking with just five makes on 15 attempts, but that didn't slow down the offense.
The reigning National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors were triumphant at BMO Harris Bradley Center, defeating the Milwaukee Bucks 108-94.
