Giannis Antetokounmpo shot just 33 precent from the field, and the rest of the Milwaukee supporting cast didn’t add enough as Boston seemingly became who they wanted to become all season long.
The play that epitomized of this first game between these Eastern Conference foes came midway through the third quarter when Antetokounmpo went up for a dunk and was forcefully rejected by Horford.
Twitter has already decided to overreact to Boston meshing together and having a game plan to force Giannis into low-quality attempts. Things will change over the course of the series, and anyone believing this matchup is already over must not watch a lot of playoff basketball.
The real question will be how Boston responds in Game 2 as Milwaukee counters their game plan.
