There were no “Dad” jokes from Giannis Antetokounmpo after the Milwaukee Bucks made a narrow escape in Game 3 of the NBA Eastern Conference semifinal series with the Boston Celtics.
But he was thinking like a father after he scored 42 point in Milwaukee’s 103-101 victory over the Celtics Saturday at Fiserv Forum.
The officiating left a lot to be desired during the rather chippy game. When asked about a call that almost led to a technical foul against coach Mike Budenholzer, the Greek Freak chose his words carefully.
Remember, he has a toddler and a baby at home.
Spoken like an MVP.
