Giannis Antetokounmpo wins game, then can't get seat at Milwaukee restaurant

Milwaukee Bucks Jabari Parker wipes his face with his jersey during the first half of the team's NBA basketball game against the Philadelphia 76ers Wednesday

With their playoff series with the Milwaukee Bucks now tied at 2-2, the Boston Celtics could use any reinforcements they can get.

With the series now finely poised at two games apiece, it will switch back to Boston for a massive game five on Tuesday night.

Antetokounmpo led all Bucks scorers with 27 points on 60 percent shooting from the field, to go along with seven rebounds and five assists.

Le Bron James finished the Cavaliers' game with 32 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists and another crowning achievement - his 100th career playoff game with 30 or more points, second all-time to Michael Jordan.

Domantas Sabonis scored a team-high 19 points for the Pacers, who head to Cleveland for Game 5 on Wednesday.

The young duo finally appeared to get their feet under them and handled the playoff intensity with aplomb, which will be a promising development for the Celtics when they return home for Game 5. Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 27 points, followed by Kris Middleton's 23 points. Murray was 3 for 3 on 3-pointers in the first half, the most 3s made in the playoffs without a miss by a Spurs player since Steve Kerr (2003) and Patty Mills (2014) were 4 for 4 in a half. There may be an argument to be made for the idea that Brown should have slowed the pace of the game instead of attacking the hoop, but if his drive had resulted in a bucket then Boston likely would have walked away with a win.

Bruins' Bergeron likely to return for Game 5
And, no matter how well you've played, no team wants to open the door a crack and offer a glimmer of hope. Bergeron missed Game 4 with an upper-body injury, but the Bruins still managed to come away with a win.

With Smart sidelined, the Celtics have been limited to two point guards against the Bucks - Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin. Yes, they rattled off the 16-game winning streak, but everyone knew this team wasn't a title contender without Hayward (they probably weren't even with him, but you never know), and the season-ending surgery for Kyrie Irving simply sealed that fate. Lead assistant Ettore Messina led the Spurs again, but to a much different showing than in Game 3.

Bradley Beal led the Wizards with 31 points before he fouled out with five minutes to play.

DeMar DeRozan started 0 for six before winding up with 35 points, six assists and six rebounds.

Golden State outscored San Antonio 29-21 in the third quarter and went on a 13-5 run beginning two minutes into the fourth quarter to pull within 88-86 with 6 minutes remaining. He played 45 minutes, not sitting in the second half.

Both teams traded clutch buckets down the stretch. The Celtics do not want to take the hard way, but it feels inevitable with this team, and you would be foolish to expect anything to get easier from here on out.
