Bucks' magical shot doesn't carry over in overtime loss to Celtics

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

Rozier hit several clutch threes, including a ruthless stepback against Eric Bledsoe to put the Celtics ahead with just 0.5 seconds remaining.

Antetokounmpo, along with Khris Middleton, did most of the heavy lifting for the Bucks in Game 1.

Then the Celtics had to find a way to go win it all over again.

Slumped in his chair at the podium following an exhausting loss to the Celtics, Giannis Antetokounmpo was inevitably going to be asked about the controversial sixth foul that ended his afternoon and the Bucks' chances in Game 1. "But as of right now, Game 7 (or the) second round is the (goal)".

Five players scored in double figures against the Bucks. He then grabbed another rebound down the other end, and went back to the line once more with 4.4 seconds left for the finishing touches on the six-point victory. The Boston Celtics are averaging 113 points on 41.5 percent shooting and allowing 107 points on 48.2 percent shooting. As they have been doing it all season long, the Celtics had to come through in the clutch, and close it out with a great overtime performance. Boston knocked down 11 of their 26 three point attempts and drained 24 of their 27 free throw attempts in the game while forcing 20 Milwaukee turnovers. Terry Rozier contributed 23 points in his first career playoff start, Marcus Morris added 21 points and seven boards off the bench and Jaylen Brown put up 20 points. Al Horford led the Celtics with 24 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and three blocks.

The stat line shows only a missed shot and a rebound, but that two points were Horford's just as much as if he'd thrown down a tomahawk jam.

Towards the end of the fourth quarter, Boston had a two-point lead until rookie Jayson Tatum made a rookie mistake which resulted in a turnover.

Middleton receives the in-bounds pass with 0.5 seconds left on the clock, as he gets off a quick release deep three and of course, guess what?

"And like I said, we're on track for the next three weeks, possibly Game 7 of the first round, definitely second round". At times, they've been blown out in the first quarter, forcing them to expend more effort to get back into the game.

James said falling behind in a series just motivates him to step up his game. Matthew Dellavedova didn't see action after returning in the season finale after missing time with an ankle injury.

We saw the teams go over the total in Game 1.

Rozier's 3-pointer gave the Celtics a 104-103 lead with 3:43 left in overtime. The score at the end of regulation would have edged the total the way it is now set by half a point, not to mention the overtime scoring.

Horford understands how this team needs to function as well as anyone, and Brad Stevens is able to use one of the most unique skill sets in the National Basketball Association to open everything up for these secondary players that still need some help.
