Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo shot 23 foul shots in the team’s Game 3 win over the Phoenix Suns in the NBA Finals on Sunday night.

Antetokounmpo’s foul shooting doubled from Game 1 (11 attempts) to Game 2 (22 attempts) and then increased again in Game 3. The foul discrepancy was a talking point for Suns coach Monty Williams after the game, when he noted his team in Game 3 had a total of 16 free throws.

On Wednesday, Williams said he wasn’t complaining.

“The free throw disparity is what it is. … They had one player with  17 free throws, we had 16. That’s not complaining, that’s stating facts,” he told reporters, via FanSided.

SUNS CAN HACK AND WHACK GIANNIS, BUT KNOW HE’LL KEEP COMING

Antetokounmpo didn’t see what the issue was and felt he was getting trampled by Suns defenders every time he got to the paint.

“I don’t follow quotes after the games from coaches. But I think I take a pretty good beating out there,” he said, via USA Today. “I have a scratch here and a scratch there. They’re making my pretty face ugly.”

Antetokounmpo has scored 40 or more points in the last two games.
