The Milwaukee Bucks regain the lead (2-1) in the Eastern Conference semifinals by beating the Boston Celtic 103-101 on Saturday. Game 4 is set for Monday night in Milwaukee.
Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 42 points, 12 rebounds, and eight assists, Jrue Holiday added 25 points, seven rebounds, and three steals for the Bucks. On the other hand, Jaylen Brown led the Celtics with 27 points and 12 rebounds. Al Horford had 22 points, 16 rebounds, and five assists.
Following the game, the Celtics star guard Marcus Smart talked about the late foul: “It’s not like he got me when it was down low. I was already in my shooting motion. I thought it should of been three (free throws) … It wouldn’t make sense to do a rip-through move behind the 3-point line when you’ve got a clear shot down three.”
