Giannis Antetokounmpo credits Thon Maker for changing series against Celtics

Thon Maker

Though he had the winning shot in Sunday’s Game 4 against Boston, Giannis Antetokounmpo chose to share the credit with his teammates afterwards.

Following the thrilling 104-102 victory over the Celtics to even their first-round playoff matchup at 2 games apiece, the Milwaukee Bucks star shouted out Thon Maker as the reason the series changed, per Jovan Buha of ESPN.

Maker, the 21-year-old big man, had eight points and five blocks in Sunday’s win, proving to be a game-changer on both ends with his length and spacing ability. He also picked up 14 points and another five blocks in Milwaukee’s victory in Game 3 on Friday.

The Bucks have now climbed out of a 2-0 hole to tie the series, and Maker definitely deserves a lot of credit, especially since a back injury has sidelined starting center John Henson for the last two games. Maybe the prediction that one retired NBA legend made about Maker isn’t so outlandish after all.
