NBA Playoffs Betting Odds: Milwaukee Bucks vs. Boston Celtics Game 4 Recap

Milwaukee Bucks Game 3 Preview: April 20 vs Boston Celtics

We'll be back for the next episode of the podcast ahead of Game 5, with the episode scheduled to be available some time on Tuesday morning.

Giannis Antetokounmpo #34 of the Milwaukee Bucks dunks over Aron Baynes #46 of the Boston Celtics during the second half of game three of round one of the Eastern Conference playoffs at the Bradley Center on April 20, 2018 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Morris bent over in front of the Bucks bench with his hands clamped to the sides of his head. When Malcolm Brogdon missed a layup following a drive to the rim with the score knotted up at 102, Giannis came through with an incredible tip-in.

However, Boston roared back in the second half.

Both coaches expressed their admiration for Antetokounmpo's effort on the play after the game. "They had a lot to do with that".

The Bucks recorded 14 blocks, five of which came from Thon Maker. "I thought we were so much better after (halftime), even when they made those first few shots, I thought we were doing what we set out to do". The 18 minutes that ended the first half were not good.

In front of their home fans, they got the job done over their shorthanded opponents, escaping with a narrow 104-102 victory and therefore knotting the series up 2-2.

Sunday was the day that both Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum confirmed their respective status' as longterm pieces to the Celtics' championship puzzle. Kyle Korver added 18 points on 4-of-9 shooting from deep, and Kevin Love had five points with 11 boards.

And in the end, the long reach of Antetokounmpo emerged from a pack of Celtics to tip in the winning shot.

With 8:17 remaining in the third quarter, prior to a free throw by Terry Rozier, Brad Stevens was walking away from midcourt and back toward Boston's bench when he heard Milwaukee making a substitution. "I'm not anxious about that, it's just when you come to work every day and you put your heart and soul into something, It's just a quick whistle, and that's how it goes".

Heading into this year's playoffs, the Boston Celtics have the daunting task of trying to make up for the massive offensive void left by All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving.

Late in the second quarter, a defensive rebound by Horford led to a quasi-transition possession for Boston, and Horford was the man who took the ball up the court and initiated the offense.

Giannis Antetokounmpo tipped home a miss with 5.1 seconds remaining to break the deadlock before Marcus Morris missed a mid-range jumper at the buzzer to end Boston's comeback.

The Boston Celtics guard will visit his doctor in NY on Tuesday to have his surgically-repaired right thumb evaluated. "They did what they were supposed to do".

We're now close enough that Smart has begun to give solid timeframes to reporters.
