Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo’s savage response to sweeping the Heat
Giannis meanwhile, had a hilarious response postgame to knocking out last years NBA finalists:
"There's a saying, don't play with your food. We didn't want to play with our food."

The Bucks came to eat and they absolutely feasted. Milwaukee outscored Miami by 29 in Game 3 and 34 in Game 2. On Saturday, Mike Budenholzer’s squad rolled into halftime down by a few points, but they eventually went on a 24-4 run in the third quarter. The Bucks ended up winning by 17.
Antetokounmpo locked down Jimmy Butler all series long, who failed to live up to expectations for the Heat. The Greek Freak dropped a triple-double in Game 4 and was the leading catalyst for the dominant Bucks.
Keep in mind, Giannis was also hurt for Games 4 and 5 last year in the bubble when the Heat eliminated them. There was not a chance the Bucks star was going to let that happen again.
As for Miami, some decisions will need to be made in free agency. There are rumors they could go after Kawhi Leonard if he does decide to leave LA, but that remains to be seen.
Giannis Antetokounmpo said it best though. His Bucks boys ate.
