NBA - US Sports: Giannis relaxed ahead of Boston visit

Milwaukee star Giannis Antetokounmpo says he isn't looking too far ahead as the Bucks prepare to host Boston Celtics in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semi-finals series.

Defending champions Milwaukee are 20/23 to beat the Celtics in the Money Line on Monday, while they are 17/4 to go all the way and win the NBA Championship again.

Giannis drives Bucks to series lead

The Bucks won the first game of the series in Boston, but then lost the second game at TD Garden. Giannis scored 42 points - a season-high in this year's play-offs - in Game 3, with 12 rebounds and eight assists to help the Bucks reclaim the series lead with a 103-101 win.

Milwaukee entertain the Celtics in Game 4 on Monday, before the two teams head back to Boston for the fifth meeting.

The Bucks are unbeaten against Boston at home this season, winning both regular season games and their one play-off clash so far, and another win on Monday would be huge as they look to secure a place in the conference finals.

However, Giannis insists he isn't looking too far ahead and is simply taking each game - and indeed each possession - as it comes as Milwaukee bid to claim a second successive championship.

Giannis takes immediate focus

"I just try to do whatever is in front of me. Play to my strengths as much as possible and I know what my strengths are," said Antetokounmpo, via Sportsnaut.

"As long as I play within my strengths, I'm going to be in a good place and I just try to take it a possession at a time."

Golden State Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies are also in action on Monday, with the Warriors holding a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven series.
