NBA - US Sports: Giannis keeps calm ahead of Celtics decider

Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo has urged his teammates to "enjoy the moment" when they travel to Boston Celtics for a deciding Game 7 of their second round playoff series on Sunday.

The Bucks are 9/5 to win in the Money Line and Boston can be backed at 5/11.

Boston keep responding

Milwaukee have taken the lead three times in the series, but each time they have been pegged back by the Celtics and the two teams will meet for a final time on Sunday.

Boston have home advantage, but the Bucks have won two of the three games at TD Garden during the series and have just one defeat in five playoff away games this season.

The defending champions may be facing a must-win encounter but Giannis says whatever the outcome the team will learn from the experience and the two-time MVP insists he is keeping a relaxed mindset ahead of Sunday's game.

'Lead the team'

"I know we have a great coaching staff, we have a great coach [Mike Budenholzer], great minds behind the scenes that are gonna tell us what adjustments to do.

"But at the end of the day, for me, I just have to go play," said Giannis, via Fadeaway World. "Go lead the team in any way I can. I want my teammates to play, I want them to have fun, to enjoy the moment."

He added: "No matter what happens, we're gonna leave that game and we're gonna be better. If we're gonna be the team advancing, great, I hope so, we're gonna play hard.

"If not, at the end of the day, we're gonna learn. We're gonna learn from this. We're gonna be better."
