Giannis Antetokounmpo needs to stop shooting threes
The Bucks have to stop putting Giannis in a position where he’s tempted to shoot threes.Milwaukee did win, 86-83, in one of the ugliest NBA playoff games you will ever see. It was a remarkably sluggish affair considering the Nets and Bucks each finished with two of the five most efficient offenses in NBA history this season. Each team shot under 38 percent from the field, and 25 percent or worse from three-point range. As ESPN’s Zach Lowe said, “calling that a rock fight is disrespectful to rock fights.
ESPN analyst Jay Williams roasted Giannis Antetokounmpo over his 10-second violation in Game 3.
In the, you need to be able to make your free throws. Also, you need to actually be able to take your free throws before getting whistled for a 10-second violation at the foul line.
That's exactly what went wrong for Giannis Antetokounmpo in Game 3 of the' second-round series against the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday night. Giannis has been trying to reform his free-throw shooting motion for years now, and this season, his coaches have emphasized taking his time at the foul line.
In post-pandemic Europe, migrants will face digital fortress
PEPLO, Greece (AP) — As the world begins to travel again, Europe is sending migrants a loud message: Stay away! Greek border police are firing bursts of deafening noise from an armored truck over the frontier into Turkey. Mounted on the vehicle, the long-range acoustic device, or “sound cannon,” is the size of a small TV set but can match the volume of a jet engine. It’s part of a vast array of physical and experimental new digital barriers being installed and tested during the quiet months of the coronavirus pandemic at the 200-kilometer (125-mile) Greek border with Turkey to stop people entering the European Union illegally.
The Greek Freak has taken too long on some occasions, however, which is why opposing fans have even gone as far as counting loudly to 10 to speed along his process and get in his head whenever he goes to the foul line.
No such chants were heard in Milwaukee for Game 3, of course, but maybe they would've been helpful, since Giannis was whistled for a 10-second violation in the first half on Thursday. At halftime, ESPN analyst Jay Williams let him have it:
"Here's a stat for you, Jalen Rose: It takes a shorter time for Usain Bolt to run a 100-yard dash than it does Giannis to shoot a free-throw," he said. "You would think if you're shooting 28 percent from the free-throw line tonight and 23 percent for the series, why is your routine so long? It should be faster so you're not spending as much time thinking about the shot, and just reacting and shooting the shot."
Jay Williams served up some cold truth for Giannis Antetokounmpo
Williams' fun fact may be not so fun for Bucks fans, but he's not wrong, either. Antetokounmpo shot just 68.5 percent from the foul line during the regular season, and that number has dipped in the playoffs.
The Bucks need all the points they can get down 2-0 in the series against Brooklyn, so it might be time to scrap Giannis' normal free-throw routine in favor of a quicker one that has him thinking about every attempt a little less.
