Boston Celtics hold off Milwaukee Bucks in buzzer-beating thriller

Share

Updates with new lead.

The Celtics took their first step toward shattering the belief they can't win without their biggest stars.

A 7-2 run over the first 3:03 allowed the Celtics to reclaim the lead, and from there it returned to a back-and-forth contest. Boston outscored Milwaukee 14-8 in the extra period. Brown 21, and Tatum 20, are extremely young, but both are having phenomenal seasons. Hayward was injured in the first five minutes of the opening game against the Cleveland Cavaliers and missed the entire season due to an ankle injury and surgery.

"Like I said, we're optimistic, but we're not going to rush anything", he said. "I know I gotta fill big shoes".

Antetokounmpo has been the best player in the four-game season series between these sides by a long, long way. Malcolm Brogdon scored all 16 of his points after halftime.

Zidane sick of Real 'robbery' jibes after Juve game
Los Blancos are now in fourth place in the league and know that a victory will see them leap-frog Valencia into third place. As expected, the focus of Zidane's press duties concerned Madrid's controversial Champions League victory over Juventus .

109.5. Thank goodness for the Suns - they're the only team that ranked worse defensively than the Cavaliers this year, whose defensive rating was an ungodly 109.5.

Horford has his loyal defenders in Boston, who will point to all the intangibles he brings.

The fact that Antetokounmpo's shot is still a work in progress is somewhat obscured by his effectiveness getting to the rim.

We're headed to overtime!

It was 108-106 when Horford snared a rebound and got it ahead to Rozier, who was fouled. The Boston Celtics are shooting 42.3 percent from beyond the arc and 88.9 percent from the free throw line. He leads the team in points (26.9) and rebounds (10.0) per game and also is a close second in assists, coming in at 4.8 per game. Brad Stevens still has Al Horford and that may be enough to propel them past the Milwaukee Bucks and into the second round.

The shooting last October was the country's deadliest mass shooting. "I have one really awful memory from Las Vegas but I have a thousand great ones".

The Bucks closed to 89-87 before Marcus Morris made a falling down jumper just inside the arc to make it 91-87.

Horford, meanwhile, has 92 playoff starts over 11 seasons. The pep rallies will take place on the corner of Fourth and State Streets, and large viewing screens will be available for select games for fans to watch the game right outside the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

Since they had a timeout left, the Bucks were able to advance the ball beyond half court on the ensuing possession. Outscored the Celtics 58-44 in the paint.

Boston won the game 111-107 in overtime.
