Giannis Antetokounmpo With Poster And Game-Winner As Bucks Beat Celtics

The Bucks evened their opening round playoff series with the Boston Celtics at 2 games a piece on Sunday afternoon with a 104-102 win. The Celtics will continue to ride the production of Brown to help lift them in what has become an intense first-round playoff series after the Bucks have knotted it at 2-2 through the first four games.

Aussies Thon Maker (8 points, 5 blocks) and Matthew Dellavedova (4 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists) also produced handy efforts for the Bucks off the pine. He came through again when it mattered most in this game, tipping in a missed Malcolm Brogdon attempt with five seconds left for the decisive score. In the final minute alone, Brogdon nailed a huge 3-point shot from the corner off a touch pass from Bledsoe, Middleton made two stellar defensive plays and Antetokounmpo put back Brogdon's miss for the game-winner.

Meanwhile in San Antonio, the Spurs got 22 points and 10 rebounds from star big man Lamarcus Aldridge as they defeated the Warriors 103-90 to stave off the sweep and send the series back to the Bay area.

After losing the first two games of the series on the road, the Milwaukee Bucks came home and destroyed the Boston Celtics 116-92 in Game 3 on Friday night.

A 3-pointer by Brown at the 1:29 mark brought the Celtics within one and Tatum's jumper with 52.4 seconds left capped a 10-4 run to put Boston ahead 100-99, its first lead since being up 14-13 in the first quarter. Antetokounmpo scored nine points in the final frame on 4-of-6 shooting, including the game-winning tip-in with only 5.1 seconds left on the clock. "At the end of the day in the playoffs, we know we have the best player on the floor", Brogdon said of Antetokounmpo, per Nick Friedell of ESPN. It hit the rim but Antetokounmpo was there to tip it in with 5.1 seconds remaining.

Sen. Tammy Duckworth casts vote on Senate floor with new baby Maile
James Lankford (R-Okla.) explained that "originally, [the rule] was created to not slow down debate". The Senate has voted unanimously to let the babies of its members into the tradition-bound chamber.

"The blocked shots are going to stand out because that's something somebody can see on the stat sheet", Bucks coach Joe Prunty said.

The Celtics were abysmal over the first two quarters while afflicted with a familiar malady - the inability to make a shot. Play got chippy and the Celtics limited the Bucks' transition game. While they didn't improve at all throughout the game - as opposed to Sunday's 20-point comeback - it gave them quite the uphill battle even if they had begun to shoot better. "I think one of the most important thing we can carry on from this game and move forward is that we stayed disciplined and we trusted one another down the stretch".

"We got the look we wanted ..." His strong outing on Sunday had almost helped the Celtics grab an impressive road win against the Bucks after completely erasing a double-digit lead late in the fourth quarter. Not known for his defense, Parker had never before had three blocks and two steals in a game, much less a half.

Terry Rozier added 10 points, while Horford and Morris each chipped in 13.

Boston outscored Milwaukee by 16 points during the second half while Maker was on the court.
