As there are physical plays, interactions, trash talks, and many whistles around them. Al Horford in Game 5 got a monster put-back dunk on Giannis Antetokounmpo and manhandled him during clutch time. But the Greek Freak got the last laugh as he got the dub by single-handedly carrying his team and now being one win away from advancing to the eastern conference finals. As the Bucks will surely try to close the series at home during Game 6.

The Boston Celtics were the favored one to win the game most of the time. As they dominated the Bucks on the offensive end and held them back since the second quarter. As the Jayson Tatum led Boston Celtics had the lead since then. But the Giannis Antetokounmpo-led Milwaukee Bucks stepped up in the fourth quarter and came all the way up from being down by 14 points early in the last quarter and got the dub with some final seconds heroics. Bobby Portis, Jrue Holiday, and Giannis Antetokounmpo got it all done in the last minutes of the game as they tied the game, brought in the lead, and showcased some godlike defensive plays.
