"I Love Him!": Giannis Antetokounmpo After Jrue Holiday's Historic Defensive Stand

It was 10 seconds that might have defined a series... even another championship. Milwaukee Bucks defensive demon Jrue Holiday made two plays in the final 10 seconds of Wednesday night's Game 5 Bucks win over the Boston Celtics that will go down in history. 

With 9 seconds left and the Bucks up by one, Holiday came flying in off his own man to block Marcus Smart's potential go-ahead layup, then grabbed the ball and threw it off Smart for the out of bounds possession for Milwaukee. 

Then with 2 seconds left and Boston with one last-ditch chance, Holiday stole the ball from Smart to clinch a dramatic come-from-behind, crucial victory to put the Bucks up 3-2 in the series. 

"He's a winner. Jrue Holiday is a winner," Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. "Ask any player in this league, any coach in this league, he's a winner."

His teammate, last year's Finals MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo, went one step further: "I love him!... He's a great guy to have next to you. We're very similar, we're not about the extra stuff, we're about winning

"You live or die with Jrue making decisions like that... We've won a lot of games with him doing that." 

Asked about his relationship with Holiday... "It's blooming, it's blooming!" exclaimed Giannis. 

So, too, perhaps, is another Bucks championship run.
