Giannis Antetokounmpo needed to get more help from his Milwaukee Bucks teammates in Game 6 of the NBA Finals Tuesday evening. Brook Lopez more than stepped up in the third quarter.
With Milwaukee up 62-61 and looking to close out the Phoenix Suns at home, Lopez put young center Deandre Ayton on a poster. It was pretty much a welcome to the NBA moment for the ascending Ayton and had fans inside Fiserv Forum erupting.
This helped Milwaukee rebound from what was a strong run from Phoenix after the Bucks opened up a 13-point lead following the first 12 minutes of action.
In what can’t be considered shocking news, the Greek Freak was the only member of the Bucks’ starting five in double-digits before Brook Lopez threw down the monster jam over Ayton. Milwaukee will need more of this from him moving forward in Game 6.
