According to a report by ESPN on Monday, the NBA is taking back a triple-double made by Milwaukee Bucks star Janis Antetokounmpo in the final moments of Sunday’s game.
Antetokounmpo had just 10 seconds left in Milwaukee’s 117-111 victory over the Washington Wizards before he managed to grab his ninth defensive rebound. He then continued dribbling down the court in what appeared to be a waste of time, but then tossed lightly off the backboard for what appeared to be his 10th rebound and fourth triple-double of the season.
However, the league determined the move did not meet the criteria for a triple-double. According to NBA rules, a player must “shoot with intent” to score. As a result, the league rescinded Antetokounmpo’s achievement.
His current numbers in his 64th game of the season are 23 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds.
