The Greek Freak soared high in Game 6 of the first round of the NBA 2017-18 NBA Playoffs to deliver a 97-86 loss to the Boston Celtics and thus levering the series 3-3 and setting up an exciting Game 7.
We are now getting the 129th Game 7 in NBA history thanks to the Bucks winning Game 6 sending this series back to Boston on Saturday night. Last year in this scenario, the Bucks at home in an elimination game, they lost to the Raptors. This year, they made sure to not let that happen again, thanks to Giannis Antetokounmpo showing up for 31 points and 14 rebounds. The Bucks also got help from Khris Middleton and Malcolm Brogdon eaching chipping in 16 points of their own.
The Celtics got Marcus Smart back tonight from injury, and while he did provide the Celtics an extra gear, the Celtics offense couldn’t hit any shots late to complete their comeback.
A Game 7 in Boston against Giannis Antetokounmpo? That sounds like a matchup we can’t miss
