Giannis Antetokounmpo may have not been available to play for the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night, but he made sure to offer his full support to his teammates as they took down the Toronto Raptors, 128-112.
Antetokounmpo was unable to suit up due to a calf injury, which had him taking the role of the squad’s top cheerleader on the bench.
Giannis Antetokounmpo Reacts to Milwaukee Bucks’ Win Over Raptors
Giannis was vibing all night long on the sidelines. I mean, you would be too if you watched your team decimate their opponents on their own home floor. At one point, the Bucks managed to pile on a 33-point lead over a hapless Raptors side.
To be fair, Toronto made a game of it in the fourth quarter when they cut down Milwaukee’s advantage to 13. That was as close as it would get for the Raptors, though, as the Bucks held on to secure a big win over their Eastern Conference foes.
After the game, an elated Giannis took to Twitter to share his one-emoji reaction to the victory:

It appears that the photo Giannis shared was an in-game interaction between himself and Malik Beasley during the win. There were more than a couple of them throughout the game as the sharpshooting veteran got red-hot from beyond the arc against the Raptors.
Beasley knocked down eight triples on the evening, which not only helped lead the Bucks to victory but also put a smile on Antetokounmpo’s face several times throughout the blowout.
