Bucks take Game 4 behind Antetokounmpo's late tip

Adjust Comment Print

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 27 points, including tipping in the go-ahead basket with 5 seconds left, and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Boston Celtics 104-102 on Sunday to tie their first-round playoff series at two games apiece.

The Milwaukee Bucks won Game 4 yesterday courtesy of Giannis Antetokounmpo's game-winning tip-in in the final 5.1 seconds of regulation. He finished the day as the game's leading scorer with 34 points.

Good on both parties for making the best of an awkward situation - but Antetokounmpo probably shouldn't expect the same hospitality when he comes to Boston on Tuesday night for Game 5. Lead assistant Ettore Messina led the Spurs again, but to a much different showing than in Game 3. "So we rely on him, and he comes through". "We did a great job of not doing that in the second half though". That has seldom been the case for the underachieving Bucks this season, but they've put two such games together and suddenly the series against the wounded Celtics - now down to a best-of-three - looks winnable.

Facing the possibility of going down 3-1 in the first round, the Cavaliers pulled out the win, 104-100, and sent the series back to OH for Game 5. They've also let the Bucks hit the century mark in all four games, so the Celtics could certainly use Smart's defensive prowess on the court.

LeBron James scored 32 points as the Cleveland Cavaliers escaped with a 104-100 victory over the Indiana Pacers to make it 2-2 in their hard-fought series.

Don't Be Surprised If The Browns End Up With Picks #1 & #2
While all of these players fit needs for the Giants and could be transcendent players, not all make sense at the second pick. Just past year they moved up in the first round to draft Patrick Mahomes II and in the third round to get Kareem Hunt .

"I knew I had to be more aggressive", Tatum said. They made some mistakes, and didn't close out the game, but as Horford put it, "those are the growing pains". Later, Parker complained about his lack of playing time and Eric Bledsoe refused to acknowledge that Boston point guard Terry Rozier, playing in place of injured Kyrie Irving, had schooled him in the first two games. "These two have played very well and we have to anticipate that".

After barely playing in the first two games of the series, Bucks head coach Joe Prunty pushed the right button with Thon Maker.

Manu Ginobili scored 10 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter for the Spurs, who extended their western conference series to a game five, as coach Gregg Popovich remained out after the death of his wife last week. "I saw that they switched it with a longer defender on [Rozier]", Morris said.

It was 92-all when Beal drew his sixth foul on a play in which he and DeRozan collided while Toronto had the ball.

He got it going in the second half on Sunday, scoring 18 of his 21 points.
