"I've watched the clips and I've talked with (Jared) Dudley, too," Antetokounmpo said after practice Wednesday. "I see they're helping a lot when I drive the ball. So I've got to find the open guys on the court. I've got to do a better job of that in Game 3."

Antetokoumpo was just 2 for 11 from the field in the team's Game 2 loss.

"I think from the time I've been in the NBA I've never had a good game against the Bulls, so that ticked me off," Antetokounmpo said. "I've just got to be more aggressive, but not necessarily to score. I've got to find other guys."

The Bucks are 2 1/2-point home underdogs Thursday after losing the first two games of the series in Chicago.

Bucks' Kidd on Antetokounmpo: 'He can be an All-Star'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2015) Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is set to participate in the Slam Dunk Contest and Rising Stars Challenge during All-Star Weekend, has drawn rave reviews from teammates and coaches around the league, including from his own coach, NBA.com reports.

"He has shown that he can be an All-Star in this league," Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. "When you look at his numbers, he has been consistent offensively and defensively. It’s just a matter of time for him to be one of those players that will be in the game and be looked upon as one of the best players in this league. In a short amount of time, his work ethic and the time he spends working on his game and studying the game is starting to show."

Lakers coach Byron Scott called the 20-year-old "special" and added that "he can be a difference-maker." Celtics coach Brad Stevens said that Antetokounmpo is "unique" and that he's "got a chance to be really special."

Guard Jerryd Bayless called Antetokounmpo "a hard worker," while guard Brandon Knight pointed to the forward's improving jump shot as a vital component to his growth. "It’s big, because it allows his defender to come up and feel that he needs to play him instead of just sagging off," Knight said.

"The game is slowing down for him," guard O.J. Mayo said. "He’s getting better every day, picking up on little things, gaining more confidence in his jump shot and his post-up game. His thing is time. Next week he’ll be a better player than he is today."

Antetokounmpo has averaged 12.0 points and 6.6 rebounds while shooting 50.7 percent from the field in his sophomore season.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Four players have committed to appearing in the NBA dunk contest during All-Star Weekend, according to Yahoo Sports.

Bucks' Antetokounmpo to Knicks: It's time to call up my brother


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) If Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo was running the Knicks front office, one roster move he would make would be to call up older brother Thanasis Antetokounmpo, who has spent the season in the D-League after being drafted in the second round (51st overall) last year. Thanasis is averaging 13.0 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game in 22 appearances for Westchester.

The younger Antetokounmpo expressed his opinion a day before the Bucks were set to play the 5-35 Knicks in London.

"He’s ready," Giannis said Wednesday, per the New York Post. "I don’t think the Knicks have to lose anything. They lose 15 [straight] now. Tomorrow is going to be 16. They don’t have anything to lose. My brother could bring energy to the team and [is] hard-working, and guys from the team can see that and take something from him."

The Knicks have three players on 10-day contracts, and could be making more roster moves after dealing J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert to Cleveland. Giannis, who is known as The Greek Freak, is confident the Knicks will give his brother a chance to showcase his skills in the NBA soon.

"He’s going to make it," Antetokounmpo said. "I think the callup is going to be soon, hopefully soon. My brother is working hard, keeps staying focused and does what it takes to make it in the league. He’s working, effort is going to pay off.

"I thought he [would] get called up before the game. I’m a little disappointed he’s not going to play tomorrow against me."
