Milwaukee Bucks superstar forward Giannis Antetokounmpo said he emerged from Friday’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers without any serious injuries despite an awkward landing on his left knee and a cut lip that required three stitches.

Antetokounmpo, who scored a team-high 32 points in the 113-103 road defeat, was more concerned afterward about the team’s overall performance.

“We definitely did not play smart,” he told reporters. “I think obviously we tried our best. We fight every game, we try to stay in every game we ever play, but we gave 31 free throws. We put them in the line so easily.”
