BOSTON — Celtics coach Brad Stevens has a simple way of defending The Freak as Boston opens its first-round playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday at TD Garden.
“We’ll have to guard him with everybody on our team Sammy Sosa Jersey ,” Stevens said when talking about the challenge of handling Giannis Antetokounmpo. “I trust Al (Horford) to guard any position. He can really move his feet, he’s got great size and length, (and) his attention to detail is excellent.
“That said, it’s not on one person to guard Giannis. We have to throw a lot of different bodies at him.”
