Despite his historic evening, Giannis Antetokounmpo did not only make headlines for good reasons. In this high-tension duel between the Bucks and the Pacers, the superstar notably lost his temper following the final whistle, an incident to which coach Rick Carlisle reacted shortly after.
This Wednesday in Milwaukee, a page in the history of the Bucks was written following the mind-blowing performance of Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak shattered his franchise record by scoring 64 points, with a victory against the Pacers (140-126). However, several controversial events darkened the picture of the evening between these two leaders of the Eastern Conference.
The fans were not only spectators of the masterclass delivered by the double MVP, but also numerous scenes of scuffles between the players, and even with members of franchise management according to Indiana coach, Rick Carlisle. He thus spoke about an incident which allegedly occurred at the end of the match, while the Greek superstar tried to recover the match ball.
A GM attacked by the Bucks after Giannis’ record?
“It was Oscar Tshiebwe’s first official NBA point… We were not thinking about Giannis’ franchise record… My GM got elbowed in the ribs by one of their players. He certainly has a bruised rib.”

It was Oscar Tshiebwe’s first official NBA game… We weren’t thinking about Giannis Antetokounmpo’s franchise record… My GM got hit in the ribs by one of the players. He probably has broken ribs.
A performance almost never seen before in history, Wembanyama shocks the fans against the Lakers!
According to the tactician, the leader of his franchise was the victim of a violent blow to the ribs, resulting in a probable fracture. If all this turns out to be true, then it would be regrettable to have arrived at such an easily avoidable situation. Especially when we know that all of this originated from a dispute over a simple ball… That said, the dispute continued, but this time with Internet users.
It’s on The Bucks court btw, that’s not even their ball to begin with

All that just for a ball. Give it to the rookie. This is his first match ball in his collection. Giannis is in his prime, he will have other opportunities.
Giannis Antetokounmpo’s all-time performance was unfortunately marred by numerous arguments between the two teams. This quarrel took on such proportions that the Pacers GM was the victim of a violent injury, according to Rick Carlisle.
