Milwaukee Bucks bulldozed past Celtics to take a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference semi-final playoff series. Giannis Antetokounmpo was the biggest contributor of the day with 40 points as the team pushed towards a win in Game 5 by 110-107. Celtics did their best to overpower Bucks but Jrue Holiday’s key defensive plays in the final 8.1 seconds kept the Bucks in the lead.
The defending champions need one more win to make yet another appearance at the Eastern Conference finals which would be their third trip in the last four seasons. The best of seven series moves to Milwaukee next for Game 6. Celtics commanded control at the start by as much as 14 points once in the fourth quarter until Bucks rallied and drew at 105-all and pushed for a lead thereafter.
