“No matter what I feel, emotions are for movies, not for basketball”

Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks looked like they would lead a 3-1 series against the Boston Celtics with an 11-point lead. However, behind a classic performance from the brilliance of Al Horford and Jayson Tatum, Boston rallied to win Game 4 and draw the whole series by a two-game scoreline.

“The Greek Freak” dominated once again, finishing with 34 points, 18 rebounds and five assists. As usual, the Celtics threw the dishwasher at the All-Star six times, and he was still pretty close to getting his team to victory.

When asked about his reaction to the extremely disappointing loss in a post-match interview, Antetokounmpo answered firmly (via Ben Golliver):

“The problem in the knockout stages: You win, you feel great, you lose, you feel terrible… Regardless of how I feel, the emotion is for the movie, not the basketball.”

Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo after losing to the Celtics in game 4: “The takeaway from the knockout stages: You win, you feel great, you lose, you feel terrible. “

Giannis spoke like a true champ who’s been through the NBA knockouts for the past few years. No one in the Milwaukee Bucks is as engaged and dedicated as the Greeks and he retains a caring even most of the time.

Antetokounmpo can also refer to the kind of “emotionless” feeling in the middle of the game. On the field, he always shows passion for the team and the performance of his teammates.

There is no reluctance in him and it shows in his usual enthusiasm and celebration.

Antetokounmpo’s emotional performance was evident in the third quarter when he knocked out Boston Celtics bigwig Al Horford. The Greek superstar accentuated his outstanding play by glaring at Horford.

The defending champions, even without Khris Middleton, still compete for consecutive titles. With a 2-2 draw, Milwaukee will have to work harder once again to win at TD Garden to put pressure on the second-seeded Celtics.

Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks overcame the Phoenix Suns 0-2 in the 2021 NBA Finals but had the poise and tenacity to take Phoenix out the rest of the way. Winning on the road post-season hasn’t been easy, especially without Middleton, but the Bucks have shown they’re up to the task.

On the other hand, the Boston Celtics have shown resilience and toughness over the past three months. In theory, they should have the advantage because all they have to do is defend their home field starting from game 5.

This is a tough, suspenseful and barrier-free series where the worthy winners will have a hard time keeping their emotions in check, watching the movie or not.
