Giannis Antetokounmpo Frustrated By Bucks' Play During Seeding Games


The Milwaukee Bucks went 3-5 during the seeding games, which disappointed Giannis Antetokounmpo.

"It wasn't frustrating because we were losing. Like, losing is part of basketball, losing is part of the game, but, obviously, what was frustrating because at times I think we wasn't ourselves," Antetokounmpo said following Saturday's practice. "We wasn't moving the ball as much as I wanted to move the ball or as much as [coach Mike Budenholzer] wants us to move the ball. We wasn't defending as hard. As I said, there was times that we were ourselves, where we were the No. 1 team in the league on defense, but there were times that we showed that and there was times that we didn't.

"I think the most frustrating part for me was probably the Memphis game, sitting in the hotel and not being able to be out there to help my teammates compete and win a game and losing a lot of money. But, yeah, this is over. This is in the past," he continued. "Now it's playoff time. I definitely don't believe in the turn-on switch that everybody talks about, like we can turn on the switch and be great, but I do believe that if everybody is on the same page and if everyone is focused and get together and watch clips and be on the same page and we know what our game plan is, I believe we can play way, way better."

The Bucks will play the Orlando Magic in the first round of the playoffs.

Milwaukee is given a 47 percent chance of winning the title, according to ESPN's Basketball Power Index but oddsmakers have them at +300 behind the Los Angeles Lakers.
