NBA Playoffs Recap: No. 2 Boston vs. No. 7 Milwaukee

Celtics Outlast Bucks in Overtime After Milwaukee's Game-Tying Buzzer Beater NBA Playoffs 2018: Celtics take Game 1 over Bucks in overtime thriller
Chelsea Rogers | 16 April, 2018, 12:04

"It's the playoffs, man", said Marcus Morris, who was one of four Celtics to hit the 20-point mark. You've got to get back into it. For comparison, the Celtics only had 15 turnovers. The rest of Cleveland's starters only managed 25 points, Kevin Love with 17 rebounds but only nine points.

The Celtics regained the lead following a 7-2 run less than three minutes into the third to give themselves a 51-49 lead.

"I'm down 0-1 in the first found".

You could really feel the momentum shifting the Celtics way following a great hustle play set up by a sprinting Tatum and trailing Brown with the finish.

We saw the teams go over the total in Game 1. If she clears us to be able to start a little bit earlier, then we might.

Terry Rozier dribbled the clock down before crossing over Eric Bledsoe, stepping back and swishing an apparent game-winner with a half-second showing the clock.

The Bucks closed to 89-87 before Marcus Morris made a falling down jumper just inside the arc to make it 91-87.

Horford came up big for the Celtics in the closing 56.1 seconds, as he'd go onto hit five free throws, helping the C's maintain their lead down the stretch.

Leading up to that, the Celtics had a 10-point advantage, before Malcolm Brogdon connected ona triple with 10 seconds remaining to tie it up at 96-96. Terry Rozier's 3-pointer for a three-point lead with 0.5 seconds left in regulation was matched by a Khris Middleton launch at the buzzer to force overtime.

Hendon also told the judge that she has conveyed her concerns about the use of a " taint team " in the Cohen raids . The FBI also obtained warrants to seize material from Cohen's cell phones, laptop, tablet, and a safe deposit box.

What happened next was simply unbelievable.

The Bucks weren't going to roll over in overtime, so the Celtics had to kick it up a notch to get things done in what should be the final frame.

James had won 21 first-round playoff games in a row until the rout, having never before lost the opener in a first-round National Basketball Association postseason series.

Antetokounmpo and Middleton were the first pair of Bucks teammates to score 30 apiece in a playoff game since Bob Dandridge and Brian Winters did so in 1976. Boston is still dealing with their own massive list of injuries but when it came down to crunch time, they rallied and dug deep to get the win.

Slumped in his chair at the podium following an exhausting loss to the Celtics, Giannis Antetokounmpo was inevitably going to be asked about the controversial sixth foul that ended his afternoon and the Bucks' chances in Game 1.

He paused to consider the task of dealing with one of the most gifted players ever in Antetokounmpo. Rebounds - Mil 42 (Antetokounmpo 13), B 45 (Horford 12).

The Milwaukee Bucks shot 48.2 percent from the field while the Celtics shot 41.5 percent, and they still lost. And the Celtics finished 11-for-26 from three-point land and Bucks went 8-for-21 from distance.

As the Bucks get set for Game 2 on Tuesday in Boston, Antetokounmpo is hopeful that his team can clean up the mistakes that forced it into such a precarious position in the first place.
