Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks did all they could to keep their season alive. But, in the end, their bid to repeat as NBA champions ended in a blowout Game 7 loss to the Celtics.
Despite another herculean effort from Giannis, Milwaukee fell to Boston 109–81 on Sunday in front of an overzealous Boston Garden crowd. Antetokounmpo, last year’s Finals MVP, ended his red-hot second-round performance with another signature stat line: 25 points, 20 rebounds and nine assists.
While the two-time MVP’s latest big game came in a bitter defeat, he managed to add yet another impressive feat to his resumé. Antetokounmpo is now the first player in NBA history with 200 points, 100 rebounds and 50 assists in a single series, per ESPN Stats & Info. He officially finished the seven-game slugfest with a 237/103/50 stat line.
