Giannis’ triple-double taken away by the NBA in stat review
NEW YORK (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo said he stole a triple-double. The NBA took it back. The NBA adjusted the statistics from Sunday night’s Milwaukee-Washington game and erased Antetokounmpo’s final rebound, the one that would have given him a triple-double. He grabbed a defensive rebound with about nine seconds left, knowing that left him one rebound short of 10. He hustled the ball downcourt, got near the rim the Bucks were shooting at, hesitated for a moment before throwing the ball intentionally into the bottom of the rim and catching it. It counted as a rebound, until the NBA took it away Monday.
