Giannis Antetokounmpo spun by a helpless Jerami Grant, for a monster finish Monday night.
The Milwaukee Bucks, led by Michael Carter-Williams, took care of the Philadelphia Sixers 107-97.
MCW, in his first game back in Philly since he was traded in February, lit up his old squad to the tune of 30 points on 11-of-17 shooting, five rebounds and five assists.
Per the Journal Sentinel:
Michael Carter-Williams was in familiar territory when he entered the Wells Fargo Center on Monday night. He was applauded by the Philadelphia faithful, signed autographs and posed in selfies, nothing new for the second-year point guard. […] This time, though, the 2013-’14 NBA rookie of the year is a member of the opposing team after being traded from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Milwaukee Bucks on February 19.
Unlike the majority of Carter-Williams’ previous 111 games in Philadelphia, he walked away from this one on the winning side as Milwaukee battled back to a 107-97 victory. The playoff-bound Bucks improved to 41-40 and will finish no lower than .500 after going 15-67 last season. […] “I thought he kept us in it early,” Bucks head coach Jason Kidd said. “He was the only one playing at a different level, a different speed.”
Carter-Williams didn’t know what to expect, considering he only was Philadelphia for a year and a half. […] “I didn’t really see (the tribute video) at the time, or else I would have acknowledged the crowd,” he said. “It’s unbelievable. I’m thankful for it; I appreciate it. As much as they appreciate me, I appreciate them.”
