It was another forgettable evening for Damian Lillard in his second preseason appearance for the Milwaukee Bucks. Dame followed up his rusty shooting performance in his debut against the Los Angeles Lakers with a clunker against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday.
Lillard went 2-of-11 from the field for five points in 24 minutes of play, marking another lackluster showing from the new Bucks superstar.
Milwaukee Bucks Star Giannis Antetokounmpo Takes to IG
Shortly after Milwaukee’s 124-101 blowout loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Giannis Antetokounmpo took to Instagram to share a post aimed directly at Lillard:

You love to see it. Antetokounmpo did not need to accompany his photo with any caption, save for a single handshake emoji.
There’s really no way to tell what Antetokounmpo’s exact message is here, but it wold probably be along the lines of helping his teammates get back up when they’re down. This is the perfect statement considering how Lillard has struggled in his first two preseason appearances for the Bucks.
There have been flashes of brilliance from this new superstar duo during their first couple of games together. However, there’s no denying that we haven’t seen their full potential just yet. It should only be a matter of time before they click, though, and once they do, it’s going to be a problem for the rest of the NBA.
