Giannis Antetokounmpo’s message after the Milwaukee Bucks‘ fourth straight loss was quite simple: Don’t panic.

The Bucks fell to the Toronto Raptors 124-113, suffering their fourth loss in a row. For Giannis, he and his teammates should keep their cool and concentration and not let that skid get the best of them, mentally.

“I kind of have a feeling that everybody is in a panic mode, which should not be the case,” Antetokounmpo said. The Greek Freak finished the game with 34 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists and career-high-tying five steals. “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, nothing can be easy.”

Antetokounmpo added that the loss and the four-game losing streak doesn’t mean that it’s “the end of the world” for the Bucks and that his team should just focus on bouncing back.

“You want to come out and win the game, but it doesn’t always go your way,” Antetokounmpo mentioned. “But always, you’ve got to look at the bright side of it. You still have another opportunity on Thursday. So, keep getting better, watch the film, improve, keep everybody in a good place, and it’s not the end of the world right now.
