By Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer’s estimation, Giannis Antetokounmpo isn’t going to crush his opponents every time he hits the floor.
Budenholzer, who made sure he gave the Celtics plenty of credit for their defense on his MVP candidate, is confident his All-Star will bounce back in Game 1. According to him, no one takes a loss harder than The Greek Freak, he’s confident Giannis will bounce back Tuesday night in Game 2.
MIKE BUDENHOLZER ON ANTETOKOUNMPO’S GAME 1 PERFORMANCE:
“As great as he’s been this year, he hasn’t been perfect every night,” Budenholzer said. “He’s hard on him so there will probably be some point where I put my arms around him and tell him, ‘You’re going to be great.’ He’s been so good so many nights. Again, credit to Boston, they’re doing some things well. I think Giannis will play better and we’ll work and look at some things between now and Tuesday. I’m sure he’s looking forward to Tuesday just like we are.”
