The Dominican Al Horford, protagonist with 30 points in the 116-108 victory of the Boston Celtics in the field of the Milwaukee Bucks, assured this Monday that he did not like the way in which the Greek Giannis Antetokounmpo challenged him with a look after a mate before the break and that "change" your party.

"I don’t know what he said to me, but I didn’t like the way he looked at me, and at that moment I think something changed in my game"Horford said at the Fiserv Forum post-meeting press conference.

Horford was referring to when, before half-time, Giannis hammered a powerful dunk over him and challenged him with a glare, prompting a technical foul against him.

That play motivated Horford, who got the best performance of his career in the ‘playoffs’ and who took revenge with another tremendous mate, this time over Giannis.

The Dominican, who scored 16 of his 30 points in the last period, recognized that "it was a very emotional play" and what did he say "strength" to the whole team.

After that dunk, Horford elbowed Giannis in the face and was called for a technical foul.

"The ‘playoffs’ are intense, they played hard tonight and we went through many emotions"said Horford, who praised his team for "give whatever it takes to win".
