NBA Finals 2021: One win away, Jrue Holiday and the Milwaukee Bucks are staying the course

PHOENIX -- Jrue Holiday knows what everyone wants him to do. No one needs to tell him to be more aggressive offensively. Or to keep shooting, that his shots will eventually start falling.

"We always kind of throw that out there," said his father, Shawn Holiday.

But Shawn has coached his son long enough to know how self-observant he is. Coming into Game 5 of these NBA Finals, Holiday had hit just 33% of his shots (23-of-69), including an especially ugly 4-for-20 in Game 4.

"After the game, we might get in the car and say, 'That's a rough one,'" Shawn said.
