Celtics Get Blown Out by Bucks in Game 3, 116-92

Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown right looks to pass as he is pressured by Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton during Game 2 of an NBA basketball first-round playoff series in Boston Tuesday

"One of the most important things that we can carry from this game moving forward is that we stayed disciplined and we trusted one another", Antetokounmpo said after the game (via ESPN). "So we rely on him, and he comes through".

Milwaukee managed to hold serve at home and stave off a calamitous fourth-quarter collapse by the outstretched fingers of Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Boston's young core group will be tested to see if they can handle the pressure that is in front of them to grab ahold control of the series once again as it shifts back to TD Garden for Game 5 on Tuesday night.

"I don't know who the f- - that is".

The Bucks led by 20 points with 7:37 remaining in the third quarter before the Celtics got back in the game with a torrid run. It was also Game 1 that saw a long-range three from Khris Middleton from an inbound pass with Jaylen Brown in his face which sent the game into overtime. "That's huge. But we have multiple guys that are capable of making shots and making plays". Everyone has done their part.

Milwaukee Bucks arena naming rights going to a local company with a national presence (read here): James B. Nelson of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported details of an interview with Wes Edens, were the Bucks co-owner revealed that a naming rights deal for the Wisconsin Sports and Entertainment Center is "imminent".

Stevens lamented the lack of passing, even more so the lack of passing to people wearing the same jersey.

Celtics veteran backup center Greg Monroe was very productive in the Game 3 loss, registering a double-double of 15 points and 12 rebounds along with two blocks over 23 minutes.

The last two games changed everything, however. The Bucks went into halftime with a 51-35 lead, and the home crowd was expecting their team to easily put it away from there. One thing is that every day I come out here and put my hard hat on. Middleton added eight rebounds and seven assists. Murray was 3 for 3 on 3-pointers in the first half, the most 3s made in the playoffs without a miss by a Spurs player since Steve Kerr (2003) and Patty Mills (2014) were 4 for 4 in a half. The lefty putback, which followed a missed runner by Malcolm Brogdon, evened the first-round series at two games apiece.

Big plays at the end helped, too. Milwaukee countered with a one-sided 116-92 home win in Game 3 Friday night to cut their series deficit to 2-1. Check out our NBA Public Betting Page for more information.

"It makes you feel good, but you gotta understand you got a long way to go", he said.

Prunty had three such players fill that role in Game 3 with Maker, Parker, and Dellavedova. The saying refers to Bucks guard Brandon Jennings' prediction that Milwaukee would beat the Miami Heat in six games in their first-round playoff series in 2013, during Jennings' first stint with the Bucks.
