Celtics 92, Bucks 87

The duo was reunited for Game 5, and together, they helped put the Celtics on the verge of closing out their first-round series.

The Boston Celtics clearly earned their 92-87 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night, which gave them a 3-2 lead in the first-round National Basketball Association playoff series.

Smart came off the bench and played 25 crucial minutes. "I didn't think he got the ball off, so I said, 'that's a shot clock violation.' That was my discussion". "I had open shots but they wasn't my shots".

Antetokounmpo scored 16 points and took only 10 shots.

Smart's presence was a noticeable difference in the Celtics' 92-87 win over Milwaukee, to take the conference quarterfinals leads at 3-2 on Thursday night. But make no mistake, Sunday's loss to the Bucks was special. Green responded with a long jumper at the top of the key then two free throws with 9.1 seconds remaining.

Along with Smart's great game five, Al Horford continued to shine during postseason play.

He checked in for the first time late in the first quarter. He assigned Semi Ojeleye to defend Antetokounmpo.

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

Though they shot just 32 percent from deep, the Celtics managed to can another 10 threes Tuesday night.

'Fearless Girl' to Stare Down Stock Exchange, Not Bull, By Year-End
Besides, " Fearless Girl ", he said, wasn't a honest feminist call to action so much as it was an "advertising trick". Di Modica's bull is meant to signify American prosperity and strength, the artist said in comparison.

"I think it was bulls--, point blank", Bledsoe said before a Bucks media relations staffer ended his postgame session with reporters. Appropriately, it was Smart's hustle that closed the game: With 28.1 seconds left and the Celtics leading by five, Smart dove on the floor to save a possession and slipped a pass along the ground to Horford for a layup.

Milwaukee is patiently awaiting the release of Game 5's Last Two Minute Report, though they already have a pretty good idea of what it's going to say. Scored 15 points in first quarter. The Greek Freak was held to a series-low 16 points on 5-for-10 shooting.

Before the miss, you'd have thought the Celtics had clinched Banner No. 18. That's pretty much how you play this whole playoffs - you leave it all out there. "We really couldn't pull away (and) they kept fighting, but our defense got the job done tonight".

It allowed Milwaukee to go on a 12-2 run, trimming Boston's lead to 58-52.

The third quarter got feisty. They got them with ball movement, with player movement that created mismatches or clean jumpers.

Thon Maker was whistled for a foul for making contact with Rozier's head while chasing the rebound.

It was the continuation of some off-court chiding between the pair. When asked after Game 3 if there was any concern about defending the electric Rozier after a lack of game time before the playoffs, Dellavedova wasn't phased. But after all three were uneven on the road in Game 3, it was Brown who brought it in Game 4 enough to keep the Celtics in the game until Rozier and Tatum provided some reinforcement in the second half.

"It's on me", Antetokounmpo said after the game. "It's as simple as that".
