Giannis says he’s ‘changing the narrative’ after massive performance vs. Nets

Moments after Giannis Antetokounmpo put the finishing touches — a pair of game-winning free throws — on a 44-point performance in the Bucks’ 120-119 overtime victory against the Nets on Thursday, the Bucks drenched their star player with a congratulatory ice bath .

The two-time MVP had taken down Kevin Durant, one of the league’s greatest scorers, and eclipsed Kareem Adbul Jabbar to become Milwaukee’s all-time leading scorer in the Bucks’ win. However, before the victory in the back-and-forth overtime thriller, Antetokounmpo knocked down a 25-foot step-back jumper to force the game into overtime.

It is something that the six-time All-Star said is part of him changing how players and critics view his game.

“I’m changing the narrative,” Antetokounmpo said. “I do not want to be the guy only that dunks and runs. I can make a three. ”
