Earlier in the day, the Bucks rookie was counting down the hours (via Twitter) until he was reunited with his parents and brothers after five months apart.

The visiting Antetokounmpo fam was treated to the perfect finale as Brandon Knight knocked down a three-pointer with 1.4 seconds on the clock to notch a 101-98 win over the Knicks. As a screen cap, the celebration was lovely, but they're way too excited not to GIF.

VIDEO: Giannis with the crazy layup with his family in town from Greece

Feb 3, 11:16 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo is having a blast this season. The uber-likable rookie is always smiling and always, somehow, giving us a reason to watch the Milwaukee Bucks.

Well, he's been extra happy this week, as he's been reunited with his parents and two younger brothers for the first time in five months. The family was on hand in Milwaukee to see him in the NBA for the first time on Monday, as visa issues had previously prevented the family from joining Giannis (and younger brother Thianasis, who is playing in the D-League) in the United States.

Well, Antetokounmpo put on a show for his family, punctuated by this insane layup late in the game:

A few minutes later, teammate Brandon Knight would sink the New York Knicks with a game-winning three, capping off a fun game and a great night for the Antetokounmpos.

Giannis finished with 15 points, three rebounds, and two assists in 28 minutes, by the way.
