Absolutely, ”said Paul during his press briefing on Monday. And we have the chance to determine the outcome. It’s not like the game is going to be simulated or that someone else has to play. We have a chance. We control our own destiny. So I think that’s the exciting part about it. “
In the locker room in Milwaukee, the challenge is to stay in the moment. The Bucks have all the momentum on their side, but the job isn’t done yet.

I can’t focus on this right now because I feel like you’re getting too far ahead of yourself,” the Bucks star said on Monday. , Giannis Antetokounmpo. “We have to focus. I have to focus now, then when the game is tomorrow, focus on every possession at a time, one possession at a time. Like I said, play good basketball, compete too. strong as possible and put ourselves in a position to win this game. That’s all you can ask for. “
