It’s safe to say that the Milwaukee Bucks were happy to dispatch the Miami Heat as quickly as they did, and nobody enjoyed it more than Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Antetokounmpo delivered a triple-double with 20 points, 15 assists and 12 rebounds as the Bucks won 120-103 to sweep the Heat. In his postgame interview with TNT, Giannis delivered a savage quote about finishing off Miami, noting that the Bucks did not want to “play with our food.”
"There's a saying, don't play with your food. We didn't want to play with our food."

Absolutely brutal, but you can’t blame Giannis for enjoying this. Heat fans spent a lot of the two games in Miami taunting him over this Game 1 oddity, so he’s more than entitled to the last laugh.
Between that and the Heat ending Milwaukee’s season last year, this one obviously meant a lot to the Bucks. That was evident from their social media accounts, too.
