Devin Booker digs up to Giannis Antetokounmpo miss

Giannis missed a sitter. He was uncontested from the mid-range. And yet he filed to deliver the clutch shot the team needed. Milwaukee franchise isn’t an average performer. It just wasn’t their day. Coming so close yet falling apart. This must have raised a lot of questions and the MVP radar deflecting away from Giannis. Booker’s comment displayed that he and the team wasn’t concerned when Giannis took the shot. Given his history of poor shooting record and number of air balls, any team could count on that.

More criticism seems to engulf the Bucks franchise after their easy losses. Although their All-Star is dominant in making buckets under the rim, he fails miserably while shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo isn’t improving as expected. This was a major reason Devin Booker and team were least concerned when Giannis attempted the game winner. While if it was Khris Middleton, the team would have scrambled up to contest his shot.
