The Bucks, who were almost at a disadvantage throughout the game, avoided the widening of the points difference all the way, and finally blew the counterattack horn in the middle of the fourth quarter. Finally, under the high-level defensive performance of Jrue Holiday, they successfully reversed the game and gained the advantage of the series draw. .
After the three quarters, 86:77, even if the 9-point difference is not enough to make people feel hopeless, there is not much hope. With the normal performance of Green Plug’s double-J turns, Jrue Holiday frequently staged a brain-rushing suicide cut in the first three quarters ( It can also be regarded as a stable attack on the inside, but the effect is not good), Marcus Smart’s outside is always in time, Giannis Antetokounmpo also made 5 mistakes, as long as this situation is maintained, the battle of Tianwangshan, the Bucks are almost really going to go like this .
It wasn’t until the middle of the fourth quarter that things seemed to start to look a little different.
After Pat Connaughton hit a key three-pointer, the Bucks’ perimeter firepower officially recovered. Jrue Holiday also hit a ball later, which was still about 10 points away, about 9 minutes to 8 minutes in the fourth quarter. At that stage, the Bucks began to play more effective counterattacks. At this time, Celtic was still very strong on the defensive end. On the offensive end, because the Bucks often couldn’t defend the last second, even if the Green Cypriot attack began to appear. Weakness, but also to maintain the lead.
Until Pat Connaughton hit another three-pointer, the Bucks officially confirmed that they still have the capital to bite and even reverse in the next round because of the two outside shots he contributed in the fourth quarter.
Bobby Portis is another key player.
In the whole second round, he was much inferior to the first round. It was difficult for him to play his best singles in the third and fourth games. Even today, with 14 points and 15 rebounds, his shooting rate was 4 of 14 shots, less than 30%. downturn. However, before he made the goal that led to the score in the fourth quarter, he had already grabbed a lot of offensive rebounds, and also won the whistle in the process of fighting, and then had the opportunity to go to the free throw line and continue to score. bite.
Although Mike Budenholzer abandoned Jevon Carter after George Hill returned to the team is not satisfactory, after all, Jevon has a certain tacit understanding with the team at the end of the season and the first round, even though George Hill’s brand is slightly bigger, but he The effect on the court is not particularly significant, and the defensive end will inevitably be overwhelmed by Tatum or Brown, and even make fouls easily, but Bud always insists on using Wesley Matthews. I have to say that he still bet right.
Matthews made only one shot in the fourth quarter. Under Jayson Tatum’s defensive defense, he hit the three-pointer that narrowed the point difference to two balls. The audience could clearly feel that the Bucks played in this short three-pointer. Three players jumped out and made four 3-pointers within minutes.
In the final three-and-a-half minutes of the game, Jrue Holiday made a 99-101 shot on Marcus Smart’s one-on-one defense, then Giannis blocked AI Horford’s shot at the basket, and then Giannis shoved his shoulder away. Smart’s action allowed him to swallow the fourth foul. There’s no problem with that ball, there’s definitely room for a call, Giannis has the force, Smart has the leverage, That’s good, that’s the trick of modern basketball, and I obviously feel that the whistle is more friendly to the Bucks. (Especially in the first half of the third quarter), so the referee wants to balance the scale at this time, which is not surprising.
Even if AI Horford was not as brave as the previous game, the dunks that rushed into the penalty area at 2:14 in the fourth quarter were still charming, and the fans were all cheering. After a timeout, Jrue Holiday’s single appeared to have hit Smart in the face, but the referee didn’t blow the whistle, so when Portis failed to make a three-pointer from the bottom corner, Matthews grabbed the offensive rebound and gave it to Giannis at the top of the arc! Bang! He hit his sixth three-pointer in the playoffs this season, and he has made 34 outside shots since the playoffs. It seems that the lower the shooting rate, the more valuable this three-pointer is!
Of course, the last-minute whistle did save the Bucks. Does Grant Williams have room to blow the ball on Giannis’ layup? Is the whistle necessary to intervene in the game? There is room for discussion, but the point is, he stepped in, so when Giannis missed the second free throw, Bobby Portis grabbed a key offensive rebound and put it in immediately, which means that this wave had only a chance to tie the game. , suddenly formed a situation of overtaking the ratio, and the pressure suddenly fell on Celtic.
In the end, the most exciting thing was Jrue Holiday’s blocking and interception of the best defensive player. It is estimated that it will also be a wonderful picture that has been reposted by the major communities today. The script of the previous game, this game is repeated, just The roles are reversed, and the drama is full of tension.
I love what Jrue Holiday said in his postgame interview: Maybe there was more than one Defensive Player of the Year on the court today.
