In a very complete performance for the Wisconsin team, Giannis Antetokounmpo stands out as the MVP of the match with 25 points, nine rebounds and six assists for the two-time NBA MVP. In addition, despite not standing out so much in the ‘boxscore’ (16 points and a rebound), Brook Lopez’s game is also worth mentioning, key to drying the Hawks and dispelling all doubts of the G1.
The ‘Reddish’ factor
Despite the fact that right now everything looks like black clouds in the Atlanta sky, the Hawks have managed to recover in this last game one of their players who may be key in the development of the Conference Finals: Cam Reddish. This morning he has played 17 minutes, scoring 11 points, four months after his Achilles tendon injury (he was injured on February 21).
