Celtics to face Bucks in first round of playoffs

Wizards coach Scott Brooks

The Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics meet Tuesday in game two of the first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs at the TD Garden.

The Boston Celtics hope to make another statement by winning this game and improving a 2-0 series lead.

After the Bucks hit a 3-pointer to tie the game with just seconds remaining, Terry Rozier appeared to play the role of hero for Boston when he put a attractive move on a defender and knocked down a three of his own.

Boston made the ugly second period look like a thing of the past in the third, taking a 70-66 lead into the fourth after outscoring the Bucks 26-19 in the third quarter.

The first game begins at noon from Boston on TNT. While the Bucks are relatively healthy, the Celtics are without their top two players in Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving. The Boston Celtics are averaging 113 points on 41.5 percent shooting and allowing 107 points on 48.2 percent shooting. After Antetokounmpo responded with two more points, Horford again hit a pair of free throws, putting the Celtics ahead 96-93 with 15.2 seconds to play. Guard Terry Rozier did so with a flourish, crossing Eric Bledsoe into oblivion before burying a three-pointer with less than a second remaining. On the other hand, Giannis Antetokounmpo had a monster game with a double-double of 35 points and 13 rebounds along with seven assists and three thefts; Middleton followed him with 31 points, eight boards, six dishes, and a couple of steals, while Malcolm Brogdon scored 16 points off the bench. The Celtics are a scrappy, deep team that finds ways to win, and they showed that Sunday afternoon.

Just watch this play.
