Beginning of the NBA playoffs always takes a series or two that, when viewed on the schedule, develop a collective cry from fans all over the world: "Can we just skip this one?" At first glance, the Bucks-Pistons series, as the East Conference's No 1 seed goes against a Blake Griffin-lesser 8 seed, falls into this category of hopeful games. The end result in Games 1, 121-86 in favor of Bucks, does not present much of a reason to look at the remaining three games.
But! What if I told you that there is actually a good reason to look at the rest of the Bucks-Pistons series, and that is why: Giannis Antetokounmpo will clown the pistons so badly that in the fourth quarter of Game 4 they will huddled together in the middle of the court, crying and trembling and asking for a mercy that they will not receive.
Antetokounmpo scored 24 points and took 17 rebounds on only 23 minutes during match 1. The only conclusion drawn from the achievement is that the pistons, like any other team in the league, cannot do anything to stop this guy. Antetokounmpo went wherever he wanted on the floor and did what he wanted to do when he got there. he was so much bigger and stronger and more meaningful than anyone else that he popped away from the screen as a video game manager. In response, the flasks answered what angry and over-matched teams often do, and tried to coarse with Antetokounmpo. Former Buck Thon Maker sent the Greek freak to the ground on a run early in the match, and in the second half Andre Drummond gave up all pretense:
If there is one The thing we've learned about Antetokounmpo, because he completely enters his forces in recent seasons, is that he can be a real bastard on the court. He told the whole world that Ben Simmons is a "fucking baby" for no other reason than the Simmons type came on their way. What do you think he'll do now when Drummond and the pistons have countered him?
You just see a very good NBA player turned into a destructive superstar so many times in your life, and this season has offered us a chance to see Antetokounmpo do just that. This is his first playoff series as the most unstoppable power of basketball, and now he has a group of petulant scrubs laid out in front of him, just asking to be humiliated. If Antetokounmpo decides to give them their wish, it will be worth setting for.
