The Boston Celtics dominated the Milwaukee Bucks on the road (90-112) and took the upper hand in the Eastern Conference semi-finals (0-1).
The Celtics were in front for the majority of the night and led by as many as 26 points to cruise to the victory, as the Bucks never threatened in the second half.
Five players scored in double figures for the winners, with Kyrie Irving leading the way with a game-high 26 points, seven rebounds and 11 assists. Giannis Antetokounmpo was the best player of the losing squad, with a team-high 22 points.
Game 2 will be played in Milwaukee on Tuesday (30/04).
