Despite the Milwaukee Bucks being in the middle of a bit of a rough stretch, reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo isn’t going to let it bring him down.
While no one is ready to hit the panic button yet, it’s been a tough set of games for the Milwaukee Bucks of late. The Eastern Conference powerhouse is in the middle of a four-game losing streak and is now looking up at the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets in the standings.
Despite that, two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo isn’t ready to start worrying just yet. Instead, the superstar is looking at the positives and is confident that he and his teammates will be able to turn things around before you know it.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is confident Milwaukee can get back to its winning ways
On Tuesday night, the Bucks suffered a disappointing 124-113 loss to Toronto, dropping their season record to 16-12. Still, Antetokounmpo, who scored 34 points and added 10 rebounds in the loss, reinforced his strong belief in the team.
“I kind of have a feeling that everybody is in a panic mode, which should not be the case,” Antetokounmpo said via ESPN. “We should keep improving, we should keep playing good basketball, we should watch the film, and at the end of the day, we’ve got to go out there and compete. When you come here [Toronto], nothing can be easy.”
While Milwaukee indeed has lost its last four games, the team is still right in the hunt at the top of the Eastern Conference. The Bucks not only want to take home the No. 1 seed this year, but they want to wipe away the bad memories from last year’s upset loss in the postseason to the Miami Heat.
Obviously, Antetokounmpo will play a monster role in making that happen, while also helping the Bucks get back to their winning ways as soon as possible.
