Antetokounmpo points to the Bucks first round loss to the Chicago Bulls when they were throttled by 54 points in Game 6, and how that stuck with him to this day.

“I remember our first playoff series we lost to Chicago in the last game, Game 6, they beat us by 50 [54],” Antetokounmpo said, according to Eric Nehm of The Athletic.

“It was something insane, but where we were and where we are now, it’s been an unbelievable journey. I think the organization has done a great job just pushing us towards the right direction and we’re just going to keep enjoying the moment.”

Milwaukee will now face the Boston Celtics in the next round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
