Bucks Hold On To Beat Celtics, Series Tied 2-2

How the Boston Celtics played Jabari Parker onto the bench

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. However, Milwaukee needs to remain focused and maintain the Game 3 energy moving forward.

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart has been out for some time after injuring his thumb earlier in the year.

Maker would finish the game with 5 blocks, constantly using his speed-length combo to wreak havoc on the defensive end.

To get started, we touched on the positives of the first half, particularly as the Bucks' switching defense continued to flummox the Celtics. Here are my five takeaways from Milwaukee's 104-102 Game 4 victory. He can take smaller defenders in the post while also spacing bigs out to the 3-point line to create driving lanes.

"I've been around a lot of teams and have been fortunate to be around a lot of really tough teams", Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said of this 2017-18 group a few weeks back to ESPN. The 7-foot-1 Maker has turned into disruptive presence after playing sparingly in the first two games.

The Bucks recorded 14 blocks, five of which came from Thon Maker. He told reporters Sunday he believes he could play in a potential Game 6 against the Milwaukee Bucks, according to the Boston Globe's Adam Himmelsbach.

Despite being a highly touted prospect and a third overall draft pick, Brown plays with a chip on his shoulder.




"But like every game, I have to get a technical foul, you know what I mean?"

But Jaylen Brown (34 points, 8 rebounds) and Jayson Tatum (21 points, three rebounds) chipped away down the stretch, and a contested jumper by Tatum finally gave Boston the lead in the game's final minute. "It's a shot that (Morris) can make 10 out of 10 times", Brown said.

"Yeah that was something that (Rozier) did a great job of, cutting, misdirecting, lost his guy", Stevens said, via the National Basketball Association. The Celtics, meanwhile, flew back to Boston knowing that they located their mojo during the second half. They committed only nine turnovers in the game and outrebounded Milwaukee 16-2 on the offensive glass.

He and Kyle Korver combined for all of Cleveland's points in a late 10-2 run, but James drew boos from the crowd after flipping the ball up the court to run out the clock. As Boston's lead ball-handler, he has the pressure of creating shots and providing scoring whenever he's on the floor.

Though he had the winning shot in Sunday's Game 4 against Boston, Giannis Antetokounmpo chose to share the credit with his teammates afterwards. He took just eight shots from the field.

But the games in Milwaukee altered the series. The Bucks needed a win to tie the series, and they got it in exciting fashion.
