Giannis put away Kevin Durant and his Nets with minimum fuss in Game 4. It was only appropriate that him saving a fan’s phone got no reaction.
The Milwaukee Bucks have leveled their second round series with the Nets at 2-2 by now. They entered Game 4 trailing the series 2-1, but holding 2 more home games in hand. The crowd at Fiserv Forum definitely played its role in the Bucks’ Game 3 win.
Giannis and co lit the first half up with some impeccable pick-and-roll play. The tragic incident that changed the match into damage control took place in the first half as Kyrie Irving suffered an ankle sprain as Giannis recklessly undercut him on a defensive box-out.

The Nets trailed the Bucks by 4 points at the time of the incident. They were unable to make any meaningful comeback in the game after Kyrie went down. So the series is now loaded heavily in favor of the Milwaukee Bucks as it plays out.

Between, the standing O for Kyrie and Kevin, the lady twerkin behind Giannis in the interview, and someone happily throwing their phone for Giannis to catch; Milwaukee fans are sweet and hilarious

We can safely say that the happiest party in all of this would be the fan whose phone fell off. Molly is probably right when she says that the fan dropped the phone accidentally while trying to catch Giannis’s towel.
