Damian Lillard threw his first game-winning shot in a Milwaukee Bucks jersey, with Giannis and his teammates overcoming the tense Sacramento Kings in overtime.
The Milwaukee Bucks fought valiantly in overtime. After four quarters and an additional period, not a single player on the Sacramento Kings squad was going to allow this game to get away from them. However, as the game’s final seconds approached, everyone at Fiserv Forum realized Damian Lillard would get the ball. He easily made the shot. After defeating De’Aaron Fox’s team, Giannis Antetokounmpo and the rest of the team were able to celebrate.
Damian Lillard clutched up, and everyone started doing the Dame Time celebration. With their 28th victory of the year, the Bucks had enough to be happy about. The offense was boosted by Damian Lillard after the Kings barraged them with shots in the opening quarter. He netted 29 points for the Bucks but the only negative was his efficiency as he only knocked down nine out of his 23 attempts from the field.
To support the Bucks, everyone had to step up, and they did. Giannis Antetokounmpo obliged with a huge 27-point triple-double, grabbing ten rebounds and dishing out ten assists. Malik Beasley scored 23 points, dished out five assists, and pulled down four rebounds in his forty-five minutes on the court.
In addition, six Bucks players scored over 15 points to maintain the game’s closeness. De’Aaron Fox, Kevin Huerter, and Malik Monk all had scoring outbursts, but they still won, so this celebration was worthwhile. Will they be able to overcome the Detroit Pistons and Cleveland Cavaliers, though, by riding this momentum?
