Bucks' Antetokounmpo posting rare numbers in postseason

After jumping out to a 2-0 lead in their first-round series with the Milwaukee Bucks, the Boston Celtics will head back home for Game 5 with things all knotted up at 2-2 following a heartbreaking 104-102 loss in Game 4.

Having led by as much as 20 points in the third quarter, it seemed at one point like the Bucks were going to cruise to victory, and regain parity in this series in the simplest of fashion.

Matthew Dellavedova made the Celtics look silly with a brilliant buzzer beater in Game 4 of their NBA Playoffs series.

Boston fell behind by as many as 20 points Sunday afternoon before storming back during the second half to take a lead during the final minute.

Milwaukee's John Henson (back) missed his second straight game.

The Bucks made sure of that by taking care of business on their home floor and evening the series with a 104-102 win in Game 4 on Sunday night.

Facing the possibility of going down 3-1 in the first round, the Cavaliers pulled out the win, 104-100, and sent the series back to OH for Game 5. A 28-footer by Brown with 1:29 remaining sliced the Milwaukee lead to only one, and then on the very next Celtics possession Tatum's 17-foot isolation jumper over Khris Middleton at the top of the key with 52.4 seconds left punched the Celtics through the wall.

Giannis Antetokounmpo soars over Al Horford for a dunk on his to 27 points as the Bucks tied the Celtics at two games each. Because Maker isn't a traditional center and capable of both putting the ball on the deck and hitting threes (he was 2-5 from three-point range in Game 3), he provides a unique presence from a defensive perspective.

"There's no secret in regards to needing players to be able to close out games", Prunty said.

Brown had a chance to extend the lead with 30 seconds left, but he lost the ball while trying to step around Middleton on a transition drive, sending the Bucks the other way for Malcolm Brogdon's go-ahead 3-pointer. It's a game between men, and we got out there and it gets chippy.

DeMar DeRozan dominated the Wizards on offense for most of this game, leading all scorers with 35 points, adding six assists and six rebounds.

The 6-foot-9 forward was recently fined $15,000 for critical comments following Boston's Game 3 loss.

"We played great in the second half".

Both Al Horford and Aron Baynes were sniffing double-doubles, and Terry Rozier III filled the stat sheet with 10 points, five rebounds and eight assists. "I think one of the most important things that we can carry on from this game and move forward is that we stayed disciplined and we trusted one another down the stretch".

Boston outscored Milwaukee by 16 points during the second half while Maker was on the court.

Morris has suggested that referees have been a little quick to assess techs on him ever since he got ejected from a win over the Raptors in late March.

Jaylen Brown had 34 points for the Celtics, while Tatum added 21 and Baynes had nine points and 11 rebounds.
