Giannis Antetokounmpo hopes the loss to the Houston Rockets will help the Milwaukee Bucks learn how to close games.

The Bucks were leading 112 – 104, with 3:14 remaining, yet the Rockets closed the game on a 4-16 run and sealed the deal (116-120).

“Usually, when are maybe up by six with two minutes to go, we usually close the game, but we didn’t do it today. We got to learn from it and keep moving.

It’s really nice to beat teams by 10, 20, 30. But you got to learn from this. It’s good to play close games. You didn’t play a lot of close games in the other 65 games that we’ve played. We got to keep learning. Keep executing at the end of the game,” Antetokounmpo told reporters, via Eurohoops.net.
