Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo and Detroit Pistons' Blake Griffin had a face-off during Q2 of Milwaukee Bucks vs Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night (Thursday morning IST). Giannis Antetokounmpo went to defend Blake Griffin towards the defensive end around mid-court. However, Griffin apparently elbowed Giannis in an attempt to shake him off. Griffin then proceeded to step over "The Greek Freak", who had fallen down. The Bucks were not happy with the incident and got involved in the altercation. Bucks forward Khris Middleton was seen saying 'that's twice' after the incident. Milwaukee Bucks won the game 127-103.
