After winning the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals at home against the Toronto Raptors, the Milwaukee Bucks failed to win a game on the road as the Raptors held home court. Now, the series is tied at two games apiece which means the series becomes a best-of-three as it heads back to Milwaukee for Game 5. Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 25 points in Game 4 but hasn’t been able to carry the team like he has in the past. After the game on Tuesday, Giannis spoke to the media where he explained how he isn’t worried about the Raptors recent surge.
“Obviously I think we started aggressive, in the third quarter we came out flat,” Antetokounmpo said according to Sporting News. “It’s something we can get better at, something we can fix, it’s something that we’ve been doing all season.”
As Giannis explains, the team just needs to play well at home and if they can do that, they will be able to win the series.
“There’s no pressure, obviously we’ve got to take care of [our] home [games], it’s our job, but I don’t think there’s pressure,” Giannis explained. “We’ve just to go out there and have fun, play good basketball, be us and try to win.”
Game 5 will go down in Milwaukee on Thursday, May 23rd at 8:30 P.M. EST.
