Giannis Antetokounmpo dropped another 40 points that night as the Milwaukee Bucks edged past Boston Celtics in Game 5 in an electrifying showdown. Marcus Smart and Boston Celtics thought they had the game in the bag. Enter Giannis and Holiday to steal the game from under their noses. By Wednesday night, the series could have finally tipped in the Bucks’ favor as they went from a 14-point deficit into the final nine minutes and defeated the Celtics 110-107 in Boston.
Antetokounmpo was monumental with 40 points and 11 rebounds, making 16 of 27 shots including a long 3-pointer to make it 105-102 with 1:40. Holiday ended with 24 points, eight rebounds and eight assists and Portis added 14 points and 15 rebounds. Jayson Tatum had 34 points and Jaylen Brown had 26 for the Celtics, who desperately need a win in Milwaukee to force a crucial seventh game in Boston on Sunday. Surely anyone would have appreciated Giannis’ efforts to snatch Game 5 from the Celtics, as unfortunately Skip Bayless can’t stand a good performance from LeBron, Stan Van Gundy can’t stand Giannis.

“Why does Giannis Antetokounmpo even shoot 3s”
Former Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy seemed way too critical of Giannis today. While he may be well regarded in coaching circles, fans will certainly not appreciate his calling and neither will Giannis Antetokounmpo. Stan challenged Giannis on every attempt and shot the insane Greek dead. He’s also given plenty of credit for Robert Williams, who might be a great defender but not the best, and Giannis’ 40 tonight proved that a good defense can’t do much against him.
Just as Stan was taunting Giannis for not making his 3s, the two-time MVP potted one from downtown, connecting Bucks with 100 seconds left for the lead. That must have left a bitter taste in the former coach’s mouth as Bucks won the game after insane blocking and defensive play from Jrue Holiday. Twitter doesn’t miss these jabs, here are some of the reactions.
