Jrue Holiday clowned Giannis Antetokounmpo for his hilarious celebration as the veteran sank a step-back 3-pointer last night.
The Milwaukee Bucks have been on fire as of late. The franchise has won its last seven games in a row and only looks like it will build on the momentum.
A huge reason for this is the play of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday, who have anchored the team almost flawlessly this season. And now, their chemistry is starting to show itself in some hilarious ways as well.
The Bucks’ won their most recent game against the Indiana Pacers in convincing fashion. The game ended with a score of 140-113, with Jrue Holiday scoring 28 points on the night. However, the most memorable moment may just have come from Giannis Antetokounmpo, who wasn’t even part of the rotation during the match.
Jrue Holiday speaks to the media about Giannis Antetokounmpo reacting to his 3-pointer
During the Milwaukee Bucks’ game against the Indiana Pacers, Jrue Holiday made a huge three at a key moment. This shot essentially gave the Bucks all the momentum they needed to put the Pacers away, and it seems Giannis Antetokounmpo knew.
As soon as the shot was drained, the Greek Freak hilariously fell to the ground on the sidelines. Here is the clip of the star. During his post-game interview, Jrue Holiday was asked about this particular moment. This was his response to the question.
“He was a clown today. He was definitely enjoying himself, but you love to see it. You love to see the spirit, the excitement, especially from our best player. That carries throughout the bench.”

As Jrue Holiday said, you love to see it. Sometimes, the NBA can get a bit too serious and gung ho. So it really is refreshing to see such hilarious reactions to help lighten things up from time to time.
