Grant Williams scored a career-high 27 points (seven 3-pointers), Jayson Tatum added 23 and the Boston Celtics set a Game 7 record with 22 3-pointers to eliminate the Giannis Antetokounmpo-led Milwaukee Bucks 109-81 on Sunday in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Celtics power forward Grant Williams’s thoughts on the team’s head coach Ime Udoka expecting him to gloat about breaking Stephen Curry’s 3PT attempts in Game 7: “‘We both from Charlotte so it must be a thing’ … I felt like that’s pretty cool to be happy about.”

The second-seeded Boston Celtics will face the top-seeded Miami Heat beginning Tuesday in a rematch of the 2020 East finals.
