Giannis Antetokounmpo has simply been sensational for the Milwaukee Bucks in their semi-final series against Boston Celtics. Having not only scored multiple 40-point games, but having to lead a team without Khris Middleton, is pretty admirable. However, some might suggest that the Greek Freak had run out of gas in Game 7 but that only goes only that he is just human. Justifying the same, the Boston Celtics fans gave him a huge applause when he decided to place himself out of the contest in the dying minutes of the fourth quarter.

Having scored 25 points and 20 rebounds, Giannis did lead the scoring chart for his team yet his efficiency rate took a major downfall in Game 7. Moreover, the home team outscored their opponents by more than 50 points from behind the arc. With the loss becoming ever so clear in the dying minutes of the fourth quarter, the two-time MVP decided to take rest. But the Boston fans surely acknowledged his worthy efforts throughout.
