Celtics vs. Bucks: Jayson Tatum, Giannis Antetokounmpo, penalty shootout in heavyweight bout

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jayson Tatum gave us a heavyweight fight for the age group on Friday, adding 90 points from 62 shots. Tatum’s Celtics won and sent the series to Game 7 on Sunday.

I’m here to help. Tatum, who finished with 32 hits, 17 hits and 46 runs, had more. Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart combined 43 points from nine three-pointers, both scoring significant three-pointers. The best support Antetokounmpo got was a fairly quiet and inefficient 17 on Jrue Holiday. Other than Pat Connaughton’s bench 14 points, no other Buck could score more than 6 points.

Tatum solved the problem on his own as a pivotal extension of the game. Bucks reduced the 14-point Boston lead to 4 points in just 8 minutes of playing Giannis 3 from tall. The building caught fire. Celtics is just You will lose grip. Then Tatum will drop 10 of the softest jumpers you can draw in a row.

In less than three minutes, Boston led to 11 and was safe for the rest. Brown called it Tatum’s “signature” performance, and he was right. Consider the history of the Boston Celtics. Tatum is now just 2nd player in franchise historyJoins Sam Jones and publishes several 45-point playoff games.

Tatum’s 46 is also the second-highest output for a Boston player in an elimination game, along with Paul Pierce. Tatum is also one of only five players in history to score 45 or more points in Game 7 alongside LeBron James, Wilt Chamberlain, Kawhi Leonard and Jamal Murray.

Outside of defense, Boston became title contenders in part because Tatum cut the hero’s ball, but the Celtics needed a hero in Game 6 and he came up. He was very efficient on Friday, but like Giannis, this too was the purely willpower type.

Tatum has thrown 85 shots in the last three games. James Harden had two shots in the second half of Thursday’s end-of-season loss to Philly. He got into Game 6, where he only shot 40% of the series, but had no intention of going out quietly. He had no intention of avoiding bright light.

You always want efficiency, but the persistence of a great scorer is highly appreciated at moments like this. The same goes for Janice. Since no one else could go for Milwaukee, he literally bowed his head and scored 44 goals for the Bucks in 30 shots. He added 20 rebounds to join Shaquille O’Neal as the only player of the century to make 40-20 games in the playoffs. Throwing his six assists, he stands alone.

I was really late for the Giannis bandwagon. I was, and will continue to be, skeptical of players who can’t shoot and have to be forced to the rim (yes, I know Giannis has improved significantly as a midrange shooter even as a three-point shooter. The numbers are related to the latter. pretty bad). However strength Here is a working term.

Antetokounmpo’s absolute refusal to deny infidelity, his flirtatious and often unfaithful allegations of unfaithfulness to his flirtation and turnovers whipping downhill one after another, an endless pursuit for an aggressive board, missing the corpse hanging from him as he grabbed his own board and looking back right away To be honest, I’m tired. But he never rides. He doesn’t stop coming. Harden once said that Giannis had no skills. Cursed if any part of me ignorantly disagrees. But I’m here to tell you. skills, superpowers.

Tatum’s bucket is prettier. Antetokounmpo’s unavoidable. For that reason, I would like to give the Bucks a slight edge in Game 7 despite Boston’s home court advantage. Giannis will reach near 40. I would bet almost everything about it. However, Tatum offers more reliable offensive assists from Brown and Smart and I would bet on a big Al Horford game too. Khris Middleton’s absence could really be felt in the tight half-court personal creation of Game 7.

But the fight between the two best players in the game we got on Friday goes well. Given the psychology of these people, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if a sequel comes out on Sunday.
