Mild-mannered Giannis Antetokounmpo has been anything but since the NBA restarted last month in Orlando. The Milwaukee Bucks star has scuffled and jawed with opposing players, and on Tuesday night, he was ejected before halftime. It was more than just a shove or a swear word this time. Antetokounmpo headbutted Washington Wizards forward Moritz Wagner. Milwaukee still went on to win, 126-113.
Center Brook Lopez led the team with 24 points, courtesy of an outstanding 9-11 performance from the field. Sterling Brown added 23 points, and Frank Mason chipped in 19, both off the bench.
The Bucks improve to 3-4 since the restart and are 56-16 overall for the season.
