In what has to be considered a miracle, reports say that Giannis Antetokounmpo did not suffer structural damage to his left knee as immediately feared when he went down during the third quarter of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Championship. Antetokounmpo's status for Game 5 Wednesday night and the rest of the series is unknown, but obviously much better news than feared last night - where thousands of Twitter licensed orthopedic doctors diagnosed Giannis with a torn ACL. Before Wednesday night the Milwaukee Bucks were -3000 favorites to win the series over the Atlanta Hawks, those odds were reduced to -130 Thursday morning (Hawks +110). If Giannis makes a Willis Reed-like return by the weekend it will be incredible news for the Bucks and the NBA.
