Why couldn’t the Bucks make it to the NBA play-off finals? (Part 2)

It didn’t take long for the teams to find the limits of the Bucks’ attack. Coach Mike Budenholzer has only one move to expand his squad and let Antetokounmpo break through the basket.

To counter the dangers of the Bucks, the opponents just need to push in the middle, stop the Greek superstar and let the opponent throw three points.

That simple tactic made Magic win the game, and the Bucks’ Brook Lopez was so restrained that he shot a chair.
