With their 118-96 win over the Timberwolves on Thursday, the Bucks capped off an undefeated preseason and Giannis Antetokounmpo thinks it’s just the start of one thing particular.
Antetokounmpo spoke with media after the Bucks’ win and mentioned it’s “scary how good we can be” this season.
“Just the habits that we built these five games,” Antetokounmpo mentioned, (through ESPN). “I suppose defensively the way in which we performed, we have been actually energetic as a team masking for each other, however going 5-Zero does not imply nothing. It does not rely.
“As we transfer ahead, it will get more durable and more durable, and hopefully in these 5 video games we constructed good habits that can carry over into the common season.”
The 24-year-old scored 26 factors on 9-of-15 taking pictures to associate with 14 rebounds and three blocks in Thursday’s sport. As the Bucks flip their sights to the common season, Antetokounmpo says he expects to construct on the place he’s now.
“As I move on into the regular season, usually I get better,” Antetokounmpo mentioned. “I learn how guys guard me, I learn how my teammates want the ball and it gets easier. Obviously, you get mentally and physically tired, but it gets way better. I feel real good.”
Milwaukee travels to Houston to kick off its common season Thursday at eight p.m. ET.
