McMillan is hoping Antetokounmpo will miss Thursday’s showdown because of the birth of his first child. Antetokounmpo has already missed one game, however, it’s unlikely he’ll miss Thursday’s game.
Nonetheless, The Pacers have played horrendous the last six games. They’re currently on a six-game losing streak, their longest losing streak since 2015.
After Monday’s disappointing 106-105 loss against the Brooklyn Nets, McMillan spoke out about the team:
“We’re not getting it done. We’re doing some good things, but when it comes down to the clutch in the fourth quarter, those last five minutes, we’re not making plays,” McMillan said. “We’ve gotta make breaks, we’ve been doing it all season long, but these last five games, we haven’t. We’ve got to make stops and got to put the ball in the basket, and that hasn’t happened for us.”
