The Boston Celtics had built a cushion that the Bucks weren’t able to erase for 34 minutes, 14 seconds until Giannis made a comeback. In the Eastern Conference semi-finals, the Celtics didn’t score again but the Bucks managed to take over the collapse of the Boston, stealing a 110-107 victory and a lead of 3-2 in the series.
Ime Udoka, Boston Celtic’s coach said that his side has made themselves stronger now. He also added that once they bounce back, it’ll be sweeter but they gave up a golden opportunity. The Celtics led 93-79 two minutes into the fourth quarter, but the Bucks made all six of their 3-point attempts in the final 10 minutes. Marcus Smart said that it was all about pride at the moment and they were out-prided us at that moment.
