Horford, Celtics hold off Bucks for 3-2 edge

  • Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum score 2nd most points of any under-22 playoff duo in NBA history

If Antetokounmpko doesn't come up bigger Thursday, it'll be Boston going to the second round.

Members of the Milwaukee Bucks expressed frustration that referees missed what appeared to be an obvious 24-second violation on the Boston Celtics late in Game 5.

But on this night, at the biggest moments, Antetokounmpo disappeared, dogged by indecision and an inclination to pass rather than shoot.

Kevin Garnett's spirit may be harming the Celtics in their first-round series against the Bucks. "If he has any pain or anything comes up, then we'll hold him out". "I had open shots but they wasn't my shots". We kind of made them uncomfortable.

It was a relatively quiet night for the two Australians on the Bucks, with Thon Maker posting two points and two rebounds in 23 minutes off action off the bench, while Matthew Dellavedova came off the pine for one rebound, one assist, and one steal.

While Bledsoe's final line of 16 points, five rebounds and three assists seems fine, it took him 15 shots to get there and his defense was a trainwreck. Antetokounmpo finished with just 16 points while on taking 10 field goal attempts.

Boston made a change to a smaller lineup, shifting Horford to center in place of Aron Baynes and starting Semi Ojeleye at forward.

"Giannis is a heck of a player", Stevens said. "With him, he doesn't care who you are in front of him if you're playing against him". Giannis Antetokounmpo could not get going, with Smart disrupting him at the rim.

LaMarcus Aldridge converted a three-point play with 1:31 left that pulled the Spurs within 93-89, and then a pair of free throws at 57.2 to make it a two-point game. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown continued to show very quick development, both scoring in multiple ways and finding teammates off the dribble. This wasn't a case of needing to go frame by frame to see if Horford got the shot off in time.

But over the last two contests, Maker has helped the Bucks even the series at two. He was not totally shut out of the offense, finishing with eight assists. Bet the Boston Celtics +5.0 over the Milwaukee Bucks. As Brad Stevens said Monday afternoon, "You learn a lot when you go through these, and I think ultimately, you probably take huge leaps and strides after the first time you go through it".

Ojeleye drew the primary responsibility of guarding Antetokounmpo and handled it well.

The supporting cast for the Bucks must also respond in game 6, after a rough offensive game in their game 5 loss. Seated at his locker, aggressiveness was on his mind.

The Warriors looked flat in every sense of the word in Game 4. Milwaukee would need to win Game 6 for there to be a Game 7. I still tried to make plays, try to make plays and put my teammates in the right spots. But in the grand scheme of things, I would just say it's on all of us.
