By Eurohoops team/

Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks got the job done and their next challenge is the Eastern Conference semifinals, where they will meet the Boston Celtics.

Behind Giannis and his 33 points in 30 minutes of action, the Bucks prevailed 116-100 with ease.

The Greek Freak added nine rebounds and three assists in his team’s triumph which qualified with 4-1 wins. Spanish big man, Serge Ibaka, grabbed two rebounds, while Giannis Antetokounmpo’s brother Thanasis also stepped on the floor and finished the night also with two boards.

“After Game 2, we kind of talked about how we know what the deal was,” Antetokounmpo said. “The team knew what the deal was. We knew what we had to do. We had to be desperate. We had to go out there and compete at a high level, pay attention to detail as much as possible, help one another defensively. We’ve got to do it as a team.”

Montenegrin big man Nikola Vucevic had a double-double with 19 points, 16 rebounds, and also dished six assists, but Chicago needed much more and didn’t have injured Alex Caruso.

Zack LaVine was also not available due to the league’s health and safety protocols.

The Bucks despite missing injured Kris Middleton will play in the conference semifinals for the 4th straight season.

That’s the longest streak for Milwaukee since it did so 8 straight times from 1980 to 1987.
