Boston Celtics blow great opportunity in Milwaukee

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 27 points, including tipping in the go-ahead basket with five seconds left, to give the Bucks a 104-102 win which tied their eastern conference first-round series at 2-2.

The Bucks nearly blew a 20-point lead in this one, but thanks to some late-game heroics by Giannis, they held on to even the series up at 2-2. Boston's Marcus Morris then missed a potential game-tying jumper over Khris Middleton at the buzzer.

Milwaukee's John Henson (back) missed his second straight game.

Antetokounmpo added seven rebounds and five assists, while Middleton scored 23 points. Somehow, the Bucks found one last kick and got across the line for a colossal win.

After a 14-point win by the Celtics in Game 2 and a 24-point blowout by the Bucks in Game 3, Boston and Milwaukee tightened things up in an exciting Game 4.

Following the game, one that was won after Giannis Antetokounmpo tipped in a shot for the go-ahead bucket with 5.1 seconds remaining on the clock, the "Greek Freak" spoke on what made points and a general offensive flow so hard to come by for the Celtics.

Milwaukee managed to hold serve at home and stave off a calamitous fourth-quarter collapse by the outstretched fingers of Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Leave it to All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo to come up with a big play in the final seconds on Sunday.

Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens, considered one of the best head coaches in the National Basketball Association when it comes to the "x's and o's", will need to counter the Bucks defensive strategy but it won't be easy.

During the second half, while Dellavedova was on the floor, Horford brought the ball up the court three more times to initiate the Celtics offense.

After Tatum's long jumper, Brogdon hit a transition 3 from the corner for a 102-100 lead with 33 seconds left.

To get started, we touched on the positives of the first half, particularly as the Bucks' switching defense continued to flummox the Celtics. He's been the Bucks' leading scorer among reserves in each of their victories.

Jaylen Brown had 34 points for the Celtics, and Tatum added 21.

"The mindset is to get Game 5", Morris said of tomorrow night's game in the Garden. He scored 16 points off the bench, but even more noteworthy, he snagged a couple steals and blocked three shots. Later, Parker complained about his lack of playing time and Eric Bledsoe refused to acknowledge that Boston point guard Terry Rozier, playing in place of injured Kyrie Irving, had schooled him in the first two games. This move was less about size - Maker is 7-foot-1 while Ojeleye is 6-foot-7 - and more about one thing Ojeleye brings to the table: "Switchability", as Stevens stated after the game. "So Game 5, keep moving forward".

For the Bucks, it will be interesting to see if they carry the same defensive energy over to Boston, where they were often out of sorts in the first two games.
