LeBron James was making a statement on the court when the Milwaukee Bucks had to make one of their own.
Giannis Antetokounmpo had been hurt two nights earlier while losing to James and the Los Angeles Lakers, and on Sunday afternoon they said the reigning MVP had a minor sprain of his left knee and would miss at least two games.
