Giannis Antetokounmpo put up 19 points, five rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in the Bucks' 116-92 win over the Celtics on Friday night.
This might as well have been a night off for Giannis as he faced far less responsibility than he had to deal with in Games 1 and 2. In those games he had to chuck 38 shots and 25 free throws and still watched the Celtics take a 2-0 lead. On Friday night, Antetokounmpo's supporting cast stepped up in a big way and let Giannis hang back. He shot 8-of-13 and didn't attempt a single freebie. He even chose to give his legs a break and do damage from deep, hitting three 3-pointers, tying a season-high. If Boston shows up with some authority on Sunday or if the Bucks don't quite have the juice they had tonight, the Greek Freak will likely need to put the team on his back yet again. Luckily, he's more than capable of doing so.
