After two straight defeats in Phoenix against the Suns, the Milwaukee Bucks won Games 3 and 4 on home soil to draw the series level at 2-2 going into Game 5 of the NBA finals on Saturday.

Having returned from injury in Game 1, star man Giannis Antetokounmpo was of course instrumental to the Buck’s comeback, netting 41 points and 26 points in Game 3 and 4, respectively.

In both of those games, Giannis left the court after three-and-a-half minutes then returned shortly after, leaving many fans asking why.

After the Buck’s 109-103 victory in Game 4 on Wednesday, Giannis explained the reason for his curious walk off in Game 3 and Game 4, allaying Bucks fans' concerns that it could be related.

Giannis: "I went to take a tinkle"

“How do you guys say politely?” Antetokounmpo said. “I went to take a tinkle. A tinkle? Yeah, yeah. I went to take a tinkle and came back. That’s it? That’s polite, right? Tinkle is polite, yeah.”

The polite-spoken Greek power forward will once again leave his manners on the side of the court in Game 5 on Saturday night, as the Bucks, playing in their third NBA final and first since 1974, look to take the lead in the series for the first time when they travel back to Phoenix.
