Watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo produces brilliant behind the back assist in his triple-double

Published Add your comment

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been a revelation for the Milwaukee Bucks in recent weeks. Since head coach Jason Kidd began deploying him at the point, the 21-year-old has been in incredible form. 

Kidd recently explained that the Greek Freak will be used at the one spot for the remainder of the season in preparation for the 2016-17 campaign. 

He showed his full catalogue of skills during the Milwaukee Bucks' 113-110 win over the Orlando Magic on Friday night.

Antetokounmpo recorded his fifth career triple-double as he ended the night with 18 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds. 

The highlight of his night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center was a delightful assist for a Jabari Parker layup.

Giannis moved down the court with the ball, spinning past Aaron Gordon at the top of the key before passing the ball behind the back of Dewayne Dedmon. 


The Bucks have had a tough season after qualifying for the playoffs in 2014-15. Their early finish was confirmed earlier in the week and they have their sights set firmly on the next campaign.

In Antetokounmpo, they have a player who can do it all on the hardwood. He has the physical stature to be a dominant force but also the agility and ability to be a defender's nightmare.

The future is bright for the Bucks with their Greek point forward.
