The Milwaukee Bucks are feeling quite great about themselves directly about at this point. In the wake of dropping Game 1 at home in disheartening fashion, the Bucks have kept running off three persuading triumphs over the Boston Celtics in their second-round series.
Regardless of the Celtics bothering them on defense in the first half, combined with the vitality created by Marcus Smart’s first game in the playoffs, Milwaukee vanquished Boston 113-101 in Game 4 on Monday night to take a 3-1 lead.
While the Bucks will have the chance to finish off the Celtics in Game 5 at Fiserv Forum on Wednesday night, Boston will have considerably more notice board material to feed off after Giannis Antetokounmpo’s response to an inquiry from a correspondent with respect to Smart’s effect in his arrival.
While Smart’s arrival was a pleasant storyline entering the game, it’s protected to state that his effect was insignificant – in liberal terms. The Celtics shooting guard scored only three on 1-of-7 shooting from the field – all 3-pointers – and he registered the second-most exceedingly terrible plus/minus rating in the group with his – 13 rating for the game.
That all occurred in only a unimportant 15 minutes played off of the bench.
It was presumably an astute thing that Antetokounmpo didn’t respond to the inquiry in light of the fact that there wouldn’t have been anything positive to state. In any case, the way that he didn’t utter a word and just simply took a gander at the box score sheet says all people have to think about Smart’s real effect on the game.
With the Celtics confronting conceivably their last game of the season on Wednesday night, the constantly persuaded Smart will look vindicate himself as he hopes to enable his group fend off elimination.
