Giannis Antetokounmpo kept a level head following the Milwaukee Bucks' 125-86 loss to the Brooklyn Nets in Game 2.
The Bucks are now down 2-0 in the series.
"I don't get too high, I don't get too low," said Antetokounmpo following the game. "After the Miami series, we were up 4-0, and coming to this series, I wasn't high. Now that we're down 2-0, I'm not low. I'm just going to keep doing what I'm doing, keep trusting my work, keep trusting my teammates, keep believing in the team, keep believing in the habits we've built all year, and hopefully in Game 3 we get a win."
The Bucks, who never lead in the game, were down 36-19 after the first quarter.
Antetokounmpo finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds in the game. Khris Middleton finished with 17 points on 7-of-20 shooting from the field.
"I missed a couple I thought I could've had, forced a couple ones I shouldn't have. Just have to find a better rhythm, better shot selection, I think," said Middleton, who is shooting 13-of-43 from the field in the series.
Antetokounmpo reiterated that the Bucks must take the series one game at a time as they head home for Game 3.
"It's an opportunity. At the end of the day, we have to take care of business, and take it a game at a time. I do not want to hear we got to win two at home. We got to win one at home. We've got to win the first game. We've got to get Game 3 and try to give everything we can to get that one, and then Game 4 try to do the same thing. But we have to focus on Game 3 right now."
