Milwaukee Bucks head coach, Mike Budenholzer, referred to Giannis Antetokounmpo and his absence from the match against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The experienced coach praised the “Greek Freak” for his dedication to the team.

“Giannis came to me about an hour before the tip-off and told me he couldn’t play. His mentality is that he does his best to never miss a game. As this didn’t happen tonight, his situation was serious.

We will evaluate his condition tomorrow and hopefully he will play in the next game. The rest of the team played very well, they were aggressive and passionate. I am very happy, this was a big victory for us,” coach Budenholzer said.
