Antetokounmpo appeared to step out of bounds with his left foot as he drove past Heustis, and Oklahoma City players pointed at the video board above the court. The L2M report indicates correct no-calls on both Thunder players.
Antetokounmpo said later he had not seen the play and was not aware at the time that he might have stepped out of bounds. "We can't do nothing about that at this point, so we might as well forget about it and move on ..." Obviously, he stepped out of bounds. Everybody knows that. I didn't get a chance to personally see the replay. "They couldn't review it, but that's something the league has to deal with".
The Thunder saw it in the moment, but the officials missed the call. The six-year National Basketball Association veteran is quietly having his best season since the 2013-14 campaign in which he averaged career-highs in points, rebounds, assists, steals and minutes per game.

Oklahoma City was within 76-69 with 10:47 left, but Middleton scored seven straight points to rebuild Milwaukee's lead to 14 points.
Here's the play in question happened with only 4.7 seconds remaining in the game. He's averaging better than nine points and seven rebounds per games over the last two months of the season, playing 25-plus minutes a night.
