Giannis Antetokounmpo might have just wrapped up the MVP race with his double-double performance on Monday night.
The Greek Freak went off for 39 points and 16 rebounds giving the Bucks a 3-1 series lead over the Celtics.
“I think the whole group, the whole team played hard.” Antetokounmpo said. “The whole team was ready. Everybody stepped up. This is what makes the average team from a great team. You have opportunity to be up two games, and we were all ready. It was really good tonight.”
Antetokounmpo followed up 32-point game on Friday, finished with another double-double on Monday night with 39 points and 16 rebounds. He shot 15-of-22 from the field, and went to the free throw line 10 times. George Hill added 15 points off the bench for the Bucks, and both Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton finished with 13 points.
“We just have to show up again at home, play hard, play together,” Antetokounmpo said. “Everything will take care of itself.”
