With the Milwaukee Bucks clinging to a 101-100 lead over the Eastern Conference leading Boston Celtics, Malcolm Brogdon buried a fadeaway 16-footer with three seconds left to give his team some breathing room.

And man, was it a doozy of a shot.

Brogdon finished with 16 points, nine assists, four rebounds, one steal, one block, and no turnovers in 29 minutes of play, none of which were bigger than the final two and a half.

After the Celtics tied the game at 93 with 2:46 remaining, The Prez finished the game like this:

  • Made basket
  • Made basket
  • Assist to Giannis Antetokounmpo
  • Assist to Greg Monroe
  • Made basket

Six points, two assists. People were impressed, to say the least.

Milwaukee’s Senior Vice President Alex Lasry:

Bucks teammate (and UNC alum) John Henson:

As usual, Malcolm was composed post-game.

You have to celebrate, of course:

His performance definitely added some fuel to the #ThePrez4ROY campaign.

I legitimately cannot get enough with the president puns.
