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 Boston Celtics will face the top-seeded Miami Heat beginning Tuesday in a rematch of the 2020 East finals.
After knocking out the Bucks, the Celtics star Jaylen Brown (19 points and eight rebounds) talked about getting over the hump in the Eastern Conference finals: “I know Miami is a team that’s waiting for us. They’re not going to back down or give up but neither are we. I’m looking forward to it.”
