With so many expectations, it's got to be disappointing for the Bucks to be just two games away from elimination. Down 0-2 to a clearly better team, they're going to need a miracle if they want to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.
Still, when asked about his feelings after the game, Giannis Antetokounmpo refused to let any frustration show.
“It’s easy,” Antetokounmpo said (via ESPN). “That’s what I do. I don’t get too high, I don’t get too low. After the Miami series, we were up 4-0, and coming to this series, I wasn’t high. Now that we’re down 2-0, I’m not low. I’m just going to keep doing what I’m doing, keep trusting my work, keep trusting my teammates, keep believing in the team, keep believing in the habits we’ve built all year, and hopefully in Game 3 we get a win.”
Obviously, the Bucks have to make some adjustments if they want to win the series. To lose both games in a blowout really speaks to the ineffectiveness of their current schemes.
It remains to be seen how the team will adjust, but Giannis doesn't seem worried at all. He's going to keep doing his thing, keep trusting his team, and stay the course.
We'll see how that works out for him in Game 3.
