There were no "Dad" jokes from Giannis Antetokounmpo after the Milwaukee Bucks made a narrow escape in Game 3 of the NBA Eastern Conference semifinal series with the Boston Celtics.
But he was thinking like a father after he scored 42 points in Milwaukee's 103-101 victory over the Celtics Saturday at Fiserv Forum.
The officiating left a lot to be desired during the rather chippy game. When asked about a call that almost led to a technical foul against coach Mike Budenholzer, the Greek Freak chose his words carefully.
Remember, he has a toddler and a baby at home. And diapers can be pricey.
"How much does it cost if I say a comment about the ref? Is it $20,000? It’s a lot of money. So, I should not do it. I’ll save my money, I’ve got to pay for diapers."
