It was a European battle at the Garden as the New York Knicks’ Mario Hezonja only scored two points, in the 136-134 win over the Milwaukee Bucks, but that one field goal was a talking point.
The Croatian hammered the ball home in transition on Bucks’ superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo early in the first quarter and Hezonja even went Allen Iverson on the Greek forward, by stepping over him.
The Greek Freak however did get revenge, but it wasn’t enough overall to stop the Knicks claiming the win.
