Bucks Hammer Celtics For Playoff Win

Stephen Watson

Offensively, Khris Middleton led the Bucks with a game-high 23 points, Giannis chipped in 19 and Eric Bledsoe and Jabari Parker each scored 17 in the win.

They returned to their careless ways from the second quarter of Game 1, except that that malady continued through the game last night with 18 turnovers, converted by the Bucks for 20 points. Antetokounmpo's numbers were down by his standards, but he still recorded 19 points, six assists and five rebounds.

The Bucks were underdogs to begin the series and even after the lopsided loss, the Celtics - who opened the season among the Eastern Conference favorites before injuries took their toll - still have home-court advantage, but Milwaukee can even the series if it wins again Sunday. Rozier may have overachieved in the first two games, but he should still have a better showing than this one for Game 4. Perhaps Henson being out helped the Bucks as it gave Parker and Maker more minutes and they both delivered after less than inspiring showings in the opening two games of the series. The team missed seven attempts from behind the arc in the first quarter.

The Bucks led 27-12 after the first quarter and cruised the rest of the way.

Al Horford led the Celtics with 16 points on 7-of-13 shooting, and Greg Monroe added 15 points and 12 rebounds off the bench, but Boston was plagued by poor shooting.

The Celtics had anticipated playing in Milwaukee would be tough. "They were really physical and they set the tone for the game".

The Bucks have to win either the game Sunday here in Milwaukee or stave off elimination with a win in Boston on Tuesday to avoid Sunday's game being the last played at the Bradley Center. Bledsoe, outplayed by Rozier in the first two games, shot 8 of 13. "There's nothing that he did differently today", Rozier said. I'm expecting it. [The referees] knew what they wanted before the game started. It's all fine. I just have to do a better job responding, and we all have to do a better job responding. But I'm still passionate about the game like I said. He also played with passion, getting in opponents' faces at times.
