After coming back from a 23-point deficit against the Miami Heat on Thursday, the Milwaukee Bucks are now certain to be the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference for the second consecutive season.
At the end of the game, reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo was asked whether Miami was the biggest threat to stop the Bucks from emerging from the Eastern Conference and reaching the NBA Finals for the first time in 45 years.
“I think the biggest challenge for us is ourselves,” Antetokounmpo said. “How are we going to play? How hard are we going to play? Are we going to play for one another? Are we going to defend hard? Are we going to be able to rebound the ball? Are we going to be able to make the extra effort? Are we going to dive on the floor? It’s all about us. It’s all about us.”
