In the postgame press conference, the Bucks’ 32-year-old star guard shared his experience of facing the four-time NBA champion. “I mean, it felt good. Steph’s going to be Steph, so he’s going to hit shots. He’s going to make big plays,” Jrue said. “But I think, at the end of the day, at the end of regulation, we still had a chance to win.”
“I mean, essentially, we had the game, but I was being stupid. So, against, Steph’s going to be Steph,” the two-time all star continued. “And I feel like the game plan worked. “We just have to execute a little bit better.”
