The Boston Celtics beat the Milwaukee Bucks last night to tie their second-round series. The Bucks looked good in that game, but it was the Celtics who were able to win. There were numerous interesting moments during the game, particularly when it came to Marcus Smart and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Last night, Marcus Smart and Giannis Antetokounmpo got caught up. The two players became tangled on the ground, as you can see below. Smart tried to assist Giannis in getting up, but the Bucks superstar resisted and even kicked his leg out, which irritated Smart.
Smart addressed the media after the game about the incident, revealing that he felt Giannis booted him in the face. Smart wanted to do the right thing and assist Giannis, but once he started denying. He realized that Giannis was simply too far gone and not worth the effort.
Marcus Smart said Giannis went over his back, they got tangled, said Giannis did a good job keeping him on the floor, kicked him in the face and when Marcus tried helping him up, he refused. “I just said forget it man.” #Celtics #Bucks
Smart got the final laugh in the end, as his team was able to win in Milwaukee. The series will now be a best-of-three, with the Celtics hosting. Needless to say, the Celtics will take heart from this victory. You can see highlights from the game in the video below.
