You don’t see an assist off a jump ball every day.

But early in the third quarter of the Raptors/Bucks game, the 7-foot (and growing) Giannis Antetokounmpo picked up a jump ball against six-foot Kyle Lowry. It was pretty clear where this was going.

But rather than safely tap it back, the Greek Freak launches his tap toward the other end and lets Brandon Knight chase it down for an easy dunk and two points. Well played.

It wasn’t enough as the Raptors won the game 92-89.
