The strategy runs contradictory to the wall-building opposing defenses typically do against Antetokounmpo, but not something totally foreign to Antetokounmpo. Two seasons ago, in coach Mike Budenholzer’s first season with the Bucks, the 76ers tried a similar strategy with Joel Embiid playing the role Jordan played Sunday against the Bucks. In those two games, Antetokounmpo put up a career-high 52 points in a 130-125 loss on March 17, 2019, and then scored 45 points in a 128-122 win on April 4, 2019. When asked about the strategy by The Athletic postgame, Antetokounmpo had a little fun. “It’s hard,” Antetokounmpo said. “I don’t like when teams play me one-on-one. I don’t like it all.”
