The Bucks have won three straight games to claim a 3-2 NBA Finals lead ahead of Game 6 on their home court.
Antetokounmpo wouldn’t be drawn on talking about lifting the elusive crown, as he tries to avoid getting too excited, too early.
“It’s hard because you work so hard to be in that moment, which is tomorrow,” the Greek forward said. “It’s hard not to get ahead of yourself.
“But this is the time that you’ve got to be the most disciplined. That’s what I’m going to try to do. I’m going to try to be as disciplined as possible. Don’t get too excited. Don’t get too pumped up for the game. None of that.
“I can’t play the game right now … right now, there’s nothing I can do about that so I don’t even try to think about that.
“But it’s very hard not to. Sometimes you sleep and you’re dreaming about the game.
“But this is the time that we have to be disciplined individually … we got to be disciplined and we cannot worry about that.
“We cannot worry about having plans of celebrating. None of that, until it’s done. And that is the mindset I’m going to have until tomorrow.”
Antetokounmpo scored 32 points in the Bucks’ Game 5 win and has been huge throughout the series with a more intelligent style on offense.
However, both of the past two games were won by less than seven points, suggesting it remains open for the Suns to send it to a deciding Game 7 in Arizona.
