Giannis Antetokounmpo was lying about not having access to a hoop in quarantine

  Giannis Antetokounmpo was lying about not having access to a hoop in quarantine Back in April, after the NBA season had shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic and players were quarantined in their respective homes, Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo said he wasn’t able to work on his game much because he didn’t own a basketball hoop — something that stunned basketball fans. As it turns out, that was Antetokounmpo trying to be sneaky. Antetokounmpo admitted to the lie on Tuesday night while with Milwaukee inside the NBA’s bubble at Walt Disney World, saying he was trying to use a bit of trickery to gain an advantage during the hiatus.

The Bucks really should have attacked him on switches and got Giannis and Lopez on him. People with the "nobody can beat the Bucks without a center" when Houston was down two possessions with a couple minutes left in the game looking like total clowns now.

The Bucks sounded eager to forget this loss.

''We've got to move on,'' said guard Eric Bledsoe, who made his bubble debut. ''Things like this happen. It happened last year. No one's perfect. We've got a great team, but no one's perfect.''

The Nets have a patchwork lineup but are fighting Orlando for seventh place in the East and putting more distance between ninth-place Washington as they try to avoid a play-in for the final postseason spot.

Brooklyn led 94-88 at the start of the fourth, and the Bucks went on a 16-10 run to take their first lead of the second half at 107-104 on a 3-pointer by D.J. Wilson with 5:31 left. Sterling Brown's 3 with 3:56 to play put the Bucks up 110-107.

He left early in the second with an injured left hamstring and didn't return. This was his first NBA game since April 2019.

''We'll get him diagnosed and see what happens from there,'' Vaughn said. ''I'm telling you, I love having him around. It was awesome to see him on the floor tonight, and I look forward to him being on the floor again.''
