Nets superstar Kevin Durant embraces Giannis Antetokounmpo after Game 7, tells him to go all the way and win a ring this season
It has been 3 days since the Milwaukee Bucks snatched the win right out of the Brooklyn Nets’ hands. The Bucks made their way to the Barclays Center and took down the mighty Nets on a road Game 7.
Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo had huge games, as the game went to OT. The Bucks finally emerged victorious, after a hard-fought 7-game series. The two became the third ever pair of opponent duos in the NBA to score 40+ each in a Game 7.

Kevin Durant wants Giannis Antetokounmpo and his Bucks to win this year
While the Nets were expected to be the ones to go all the way this year, injuries cut short their post-season run. However, this meant that the ring was once again hanging in the balance, and no clear taker.
The Bucks just released an All-Access of Game 7. In that video, we can hear Kevin Durant telling Giannis to ‘go get you one’.
All throughout the series, the two stars had shown mutual respect and admiration, and it certainly showed once the series ended. While the Nets begin their offseason preparation, the Bucks are gearing up to face the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference Finals.
The Hawks, who took down the Sixers in yet another 7-game series, would make their way to Milwaukee for Game 1. The Bucks would like to take on the challenge and start the Conference Finals on a strong note. Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals takes place tomorrow in Milwaukee.
