The Bucks have once again proved why they are the most resilient team in the NBA. Down double digits in the 4th quarter it seemed like Celtics were easily on their way to a series defining Game 5 win. However, just as we saw in last years’ playoffs Bucks are never out a game until it’s over. One of the most incredible moments from the nail biter finish involved Giannis Antetokounmpo leaking vital red fluid.

Details on Why Giannis Antetokounmpo Sweating Blood During Bucks’ Miracle Game 5 Bobby Portis Game Winner is Classic

A Jrue Holiday hit a game tying three late in the 4th quarter, which made the camera catch Giannis Antetokounmpo bleeding from his eye area. Giannis was so into the game that he didn’t seem to notice, and probably thought it was sweat coming down his face. It was almost like Giannis was sweating blood due to the amount of effort he was giving the game of basketball. To put icing on the cake Giannis hit a clutch three with the blood draining from his eye. The moment showed once again why Giannis is now considered the best player in the NBA by many.

Why Was Giannis Antetokounmpo Bleeding from his Eye?

The footage above doesn’t show, but Giannis’ bloody eye injury was the result of friendly fire. Pat Connaughton hit Giannis’s eye with his elbow while they were both going for a rebound. The collision happened in mid air, and Giannis fell down the court hard. However, it didn’t seem to affect him much because he got right back up like nothing happened. The adrenaline probably had him in Super Saiyan 5 mode.

Giannis’ literally losing blood for his team paid off in the end when Bobby Portis made the game winning shot on a put back layup off his free throw miss. The play was made possible, because Giannis took it right at the defense to draw a foul as you can see in the later part of the highlights above. That was followed by Jrue Holiday blocking Marcus Smart’s layup attempt and then throwing the ball off him to complete a turnover.
