NBA playoffs 2021: Giannis Antetokounmpo and Milwaukee Bucks spinning and posterizing Atlanta Hawks in Game 2 – ESPN


From tipoff to halftime, the Milwaukee Bucks started Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals with their feet on the gas. They jumped out to a 77-45 lead over the Atlanta Hawks and never looked back.

In the first half, Jrue Holiday guarded Atlanta’s All-Star point guard, Trae Young, on 29 of 47 plays and managed to effectively contain him, as Young was only 2-of-8 with six turnovers on those plays. Young’s eight first-half turnovers were the most in any half of his career.

The Bucks were led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, who used his signature spin moves to dominate in the paint. Brook Lopez has also been a great contributor in this matchup, including with his poster dunk on Clint Capela.

Milwaukee’s 32-point advantage at the break marked the second-largest halftime lead in a conference or division finals game in NBA history.
