24 hours before the Milwaukee Bucks are set to face the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Finals — Giannis Antetokounmpo talked to the media about the upcoming matchup.
In the midst of speaking about his next opponent, the Milwaukee Bucks star impressively took a shot at the Boston Celtics, who they eliminated in five games, all while giving the Toronto Raptors a compliment.
“Against Boston, you can go down 1-0 and still be fine; but against Toronto, it’s hard to be in that spot when you lose the first game in your home.”
I mean, he wasn’t lying.
After getting blown out in Game 1, the Bucks began to buckle down and completely imposed their will on the Celtics and swept them the rest of the way.
