Giannis Antetokounmpo wows with filthy dunk, tips in game-winner

24 April 2018

Milwaukee knows that they can win at home, but now must prove that they can win in Boston.

The Greek Freak blew past Horford with a quick first step, then he went around and over him en route to the vicious one-handed dunk.

By hounding the Celtics on the perimeter, the Bucks cut off Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin from feeding the ball inside early in the shot clock like they were doing in Games 1 and 2. If cleared, Smart anticipates being in the Boston lineup when either the Celtics or Bucks will be looking to clinch the series on Thursday night. The Bucks will now look to make it three straight wins and become the first team to win a road game in the series. Milwaukee continues to struggle at the free throw line as their percentage dropped to 67.5 percent.

"Just have them keep playing with that same energy", Middleton said. Antetokounmpo is averaging 26.9 points per game and 10.0 rebounds per game through the first 4 games of this series. Parker seemed to feed off the home crowd, and perhaps his own annoyance with how little he had played in Games 1 and 2.

Most playoff series have a big adjustment in Game 3 that either reshapes the matchup or fails completely.

■ Here's hoping agitator Marcus Smart returns to this series sooner rather than later. Can Brad Stevens get his ragtag collection of role players back in the win column or will Boston be staring elimination in the face when Game 6 tips off in Brew City? Scoring 20 points on 47% shooting, Brown played well on both ends of the floor, especially in the thrilling overtime period, where the Celtics eventually pulled away.

But he's excited to play, he told me today that he wants to go out and play, wants to go out and throw the ball. Taulia Tagovailoa started his career under the guidance of June Jones at Kapolei.

Jayson Tatum put the Celtics up 100-99 - their first lead since they were up 14-13 in the first quarter - by knocking down a pull-up jumper over Khris Middleton with:52 seconds remaining.

Game 5 will be played in Cleveland on Wednesday, April 25.

Jaylen Brown led all scorers with 34 points for the Celtics. Seven Pacers finished in double-digits, with Young notching an impressive double-double of 12 points and 16 rebounds.

During Smart's absence - which came when the team was already without Kyrie Irving and Daniel Theis - Boston went 9-6, allowing 101.5 points a night.

The Bucks did what they need to do at home in Games 3 and 4. Dude just won Milwaukee a playoff game!

Maybe he can take out any residual anger on the Celtics. The Bucks took Game 3 in convincing fashion.
