How many minutes was Semi defending Giannis and how many points did Giannis score and what was his shooting percentage when defended by Semi?

Thanks,

Smitty77

P.S.   The ONLY bucket I remember him scoring on Semi was the tip in, as the dunk was in Horford's face.

Don't know, but the tip in was on Tatum. He manhandled Tatum under the basket to get free and get the tip in.

How can we find this out?  I don't remember Giannis hitting a shot on Semi.

Thanks,

Semi's switchabllity really helped in the fourth quarter.
If Baynes had been in, he would have blocked Giannis out.

I think we've seen the end of Munroe for this series, and Semi will take most of those minutes.

CBS actually put Semi on Giannis too late

Did Henson even play much in games 3 and 4? Zeller only at the beginning of games.

And then it was all Thon Maker who is like a stretch 4/Power 3

Ojeleye played well that game. He did decent on Giannis, but I think our scheme is what made the difference. He got burned by Giannis in Boston. This game they put Ojeleye on Giannis and smothered him when he made a move.

I hope we did not see the end of Monroe in this uniform.

Henson has been injured since game 3 with a bad back. Thatís why Maker got playing time to begin eith

That doesn't exactly fit the "Giannis stopper" narrative that often pops up on here.
