NBA Playoffs Recap: No. 2 Boston vs. No. 7 Milwaukee

The Denver Nuggets and Minnesota Timberwolves will decide the final playoff spot on Wednesday The Denver Nuggets and Minnesota Timberwolves will decide the final playoff spot on Wednesday

With.5 seconds left, Milwaukee's Khris Middleton converted a game-tying three from almost half court to tie the game at 99, sending the game to overtime. Seldom has Milwaukee been at full strength this season, but health is nary a worry at the moment this postseason. The Bucks never made a serious run, trailing by 36 at the half and by 30 after three quarters.

The game went to overtime following a wild finish in regulation that included back-to-back three-pointers in the closing seconds.

Antetokounmpo got the line for a three-point game with 14.8 seconds on the clock, but Rozier grabbed the rebound of the second miss and a loose-ball foul was called - with one official overruling the other's jump-ball call - for Antetokounmpo's sixth of the game.

The Bucks not only have the best guard in the series, they have the best player. Malcolm Brogdon (U.Va.) scored all 16 of his points after halftime for Milwaukee. When they lock-in a steal, it's usually go time for a featured highlight reel slam from their All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo, or a drive-and-dish pass to the open three-point shooter in the corner. Brogdon suffered a quadricep tear against the Timberwolves on February 1 and returned April 9 against Orlando.

Bucks forward Khris Middleton answered with a 35-foot, game-tying three that sent the game to overtime.

JJ Redick (Roanoke) scored 28 points to lead the Sixers.

If nothing else, the Boston Celtics have been adaptable this season. The Boston Celtics are allowing 38.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45 rebounds per game. Aron Baynes led Boston with 26 points and 14 rebounds in the win.

Since two-way players are ineligible for the postseason, the Celtics are lacking point guards in a serious way due to the absences of Irving and Smart.

Midland and Morningside split Softball Doubleheader
South and Riverside combined for six home runs in the Rebels' 15-4 Western Reserve Conference win at FOE Field in Willoughby. Hogeland came home from third to make it 3-0 on a passed ball two at-bats later to give Fairview a commanding lead early.


The first game begins at noon from Boston on TNT.

The Celtics needed every one of his 24 points and 12 rebounds in the series opener, but over the course of the series his experience will loom larger. "They've prepared really hard, they've prepared really well, and now I want them to play free, and again, do what they do best and that is compete".

Tatum finished the half with a team-leading 10 points (4-8 FG) and Horford was getting into the action with eight points (3-3 FG) and five boards. Terry Rozier is the third double-digit scorer and Jaylen Brown is dishing four assists.

Milwaukee was held to just two field goals over the first seven minutes of the fourth quarter as the Celtics built an 86-76 advantage. "And at six fouls, you're out of the game".

That's exactly what they wound up doing in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference playoffs on Sunday at TD Garden. In the epitome of the next man up mentality, Boston rides their replacements to a tough win in the opener. You've got to get back into it.

He also didn't rule out a return earlier than Game 7, assuming his check-ups go well.

Kyrie Irving, out for the rest of the season following knee surgery, and Marcus Smart (rehabbing from right thumb surgery) sat at the end of the Boston bench. But it is certainly vulnerable opposite a seventh-seeded Bucks team with which it split four games this season. All they need to do is gain composure against this steady Celtics roster and find their legs under their dominant run-and-gun offense. This one pushes over the total as Milwaukee's mediocre defense leads the way.
