Giannis Antetokounmpo rose against the odds in that respective semifinal series against the Boston Celtics through the second quarter of Game 7. After going off the floor 6 of 9 in the first quarter, the Greek freak seemed destined to cause a stir at TD Garden with another strong performance, but I don’t think it was his day as the Celtics Bucks recklessly 109-81 to secure their place in the European Championship finals.
With the difference so clear, the Celtics and the Bucks jointly decided to keep their bench players on the ground for the remaining 2 minutes, marking the end of the series. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jayson Tatum ended up sharing a heartwarming moment after a tough match-to-match doubles in this tiring series. Check below.
Giannis Antetokounmpo failed to shoot in Game 7
While Giannis Antetokounmpo had 25 points and 20 rebounds in Game 7, the numbers don’t reflect his abysmal performance. Perhaps ‘abyssal’ would be the wrong word, but the Greek freak seemed to have run out of gas as the game progressed into the deeper stages.
On the other hand, Jayson Tatum wasn’t at his best even in Game 7 as he only scored 23 points. So who was the difference? First, power forward, Grant Williams, who posted his best score of 27 points, giving the home side a clear advantage over downtown.
Additionally, the Milwaukee Bucks fought from the deep again as they went 4-of-29 in Game 7. Interestingly, they were outscored by the downtown Boston Celtics by more than 50 points. Perhaps summing up where the overall point difference was.
That being said, with Giannis Antetokounmpo showing signs he’s human after all, hearts go to the Milwaukee Bucks, who gave their heart and soul on the pitch even when they were without Khris Middleton. For now, all eyes will be on the Jayson Tatum-led Celtics and their European Championship Finals series, set to take on top seed Miami Heat on Tuesday.
