Kyrie Irving and Giannis Antetokounmpo Duel in Boston

Kyrie Irving Kyrie Irving and Giannis Antetokounmpo Duel in Boston
Noah Ferguson | 07 December, 2017, 08:57

The Bucks enter Monday's game riding a three-game win streak but to extend it they'll need to win in Boston, where the Celtics are 10-2 on the year.

The Celtics thus withstood a 40-point eruption from Milwaukee's star, Giannis Antetokounmpo, who also had eight rebounds.

It featured Bucks star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo dropping a game-high 40 points, which made him the only player in the league to record three 40-point outings so far this season.

Antetokounmpo, with the help of some Eric Bledsoe shooting late in the third, had 34 points by the start of the fourth, courtesy of a 16-point third.

The Bucks lead all teams in plus/minus in clutch situations, outscoring opponents by 38 points in 39 minutes of clutch time (last five minutes with score within five points) this season.

The problem for the Bucks came via the resurgence of an ultra-aggressive defensive approach that saw Jayson Tatum go 4-of-4 on wide open threes early on, and allowed the Celtics to move the ball over and around traps and double teams to find open looks at the rim easily. No shooting performance was perhaps as stirring as rookie Jayson Tatum's 17-point, 5-for-6 night for the simple reason that the rookie buried all four of his 3-point attempts in the first quarter. He is now one of three players in the league alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis averaging at least 25.0 points and shooting greater than 50 percent from the field.
