Bucks Hit East finals after outlasting Nets

"I am very happy for what we have done. I am very happy we could compose 8 to the board. However, the job isn't completed," Giannis Antetokounmpo explained.

"We have got to keep thinking about ourselves. We have got to keep playing great basketball and take it game by game. The job isn't done. We are halfway through"

They got there by edging the Nets 115-111 on Saturday night at the very first Game 7 to proceed overtime because 2006.

They'll play top-seeded Philadelphia or even No. 5 Atlanta at a series that begins Wednesday.

"We are certainly proud of where we're. We place a great deal of work in for this stage," centre Brook Lopez stated. "But, you knowour aim this year at the start of the year was not simply to make it into the Eastern Conference finals. Clearly we would like to win a tournament."

The Bucks blew a 2-0 lead last time that they got to the conference finals, dropping four straight to the eventual NBA champion Toronto Raptors at 2019.

They surpassed that deficit that moment, turning the string after falling Game two by 39 points and pulling a deciding game which turned into a thriller.

"It has just been a nightmare of a string," trainer Mike Budenholzer explained. "You put a lot of emotion and so much power and time in it. With this particular group to be rewarded with a massive win in a Game 7 in overtime, it is only a fantastic group. You feel perfect for your team, excellent for the players."

The Bucks had the best record in the league last year but could not get from the next round. They obtained Jrue Holiday earlier this year to staff with Antetokounmpo and Middleton, both All-Stars, and assembled a team that has been prepared for the postseason.

Milwaukee is unbeaten at home in the postseason and could play there to begin another round if Atlanta wins Sunday. But even if they're on the street, the Bucks are confident in their opportunities.

"To be in a position to eventually get over the hump against him is fairly wonderful. I am excited," ahead P.J. Tucker stated. "We are only getting started, however. We have got a great deal of work to perform."
