The Milwaukee Bucks’ “Bench Mob” took credit for pushing the team through a difficult stretch in the 3rd quarter in their 113-101 win over the Boston Celtics in game 4. The win puts the Bucks up 3-1 in the series.
The Bucks went on a 17-7 run in the 3rd quarter to take the lead with both Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton on the bench with 4 fouls. George Hill scored 9 of his 15 points in the quarter.
“Some nights, the starters might not have it going. The effort and the energy when we check into the game. That’s something George, me, everybody on the bench prides ourselves in. That is the ‘Bench Mob,'” said Pat Connaughton.
The “Bench Mob” also played a significant role in the Bucks’ game 3 win.
“They’ve been the difference-maker in this series. It’s great to have guys who can step up like that from the bench,” said Antetokounmpo.
