Antetokounmpo brothers, Kristaps Porzingis play streetball in Athens

ATHENS, Greece -- NBA stars Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks and Kristaps Porzingis of the New York Knicks battled it out in Athens in a game of streetball Sunday, watched by a crowd of 5,000.

Played in an open court in Greece's largest public high school, the "Antetokounbros Streetball Event" ended 123-123. No overtime was played.

Porzingis scored 21 points but was overshadowed by team member Thanasis Antetokounmpo, Giannis' older brother, who scored 69. The two had played for a few games together last season, when Thanasis was signed by the Knicks on a 10-day contract. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the other team with 64 points. The other players were a mixture of veteran pros and amateurs.

On Saturday, Porzingis and the Antetokoumpo brothers were given a private tour of the Acropolis Museum.

By Sunday, it was back to business -- sort of. Porzingis elected to play portions of the game while wearing sunglasses and the teams engaged in a dance interlude.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
