Boston holds a special place in Pat Connaughton’s heart, making it a meaningful experience whenever the Milwaukee Bucks take on the Boston Celtics. As a native of Arlington, Massachusetts, Connaughton has always been vocal about his roots in the city, but makes it clear that his loyalty lies with the Bucks.
During a recent interview, Connaughton expressed his excitement to compete against the Celtics, particularly when playing at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee. However, the 30-year-old finds even more fulfillment in facing Boston on their home court. He described the thrill of leaving the Boston Garden in silence after a victory, highlighting the satisfaction of shutting down the Celtics’ fans in their own building.
The anticipation of returning home to Boston is always a notable occasion for Connaughton, especially with the Bucks’ ability to silence the Celtics’ supporters in their own arena. Furthermore, the upcoming matchup holds added significance as it marks Jrue Holiday’s first time playing against his former team since joining Milwaukee.
Connaughton shared his thoughts about Holiday’s reunion with his old team, likening the situation to a dramatic movie or soap opera. Despite expressing his wish for Holiday to take it easy on him during their game against the Celtics, Connaughton is certain that his former teammate will bring his A-game to the court.
Aside from sharing his insights on the upcoming games, Connaughton is known for looking out for his teammates, as shown in his support for Holiday, and his coverage of Wisconsin sports.
