National Basketball Association roundup: Bucks rout Celtics, close series gap to 2-1

National Basketball Association roundup: Bucks rout Celtics, close series gap to 2-1

Maker is proving that axiom to be correct. "Our aggressiveness was off the charts", Ginobili said. "It's the playoffs. These are the moments everybody plays for". 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? "That's all I focus on and that's what I'll continue to do each time".

The Bucks nearly blew a 20-point lead in this one, but thanks to some late-game heroics by Giannis, they held on to even the series up at 2-2. Defensively, the Celtics are yielding 100.4 points per game against the opposing teams. Brown is scoring 23.8 points per game on over 51 percent shooting in this series, and Boston has outscored Milwaukee by 34 points with him on the floor. "The Greek Freak" is capable of leading the Bucks, but he will need other players to step up in this pivotal game 5. "We can't be a step behind".

LeBron James said everyone on the Cavaliers' roster - himself included - needed to play better after falling behind IN 2-1 IN their series.

Game 4: Bolstered again by a raucous crowd, Milwaukee got off to another quick start but couldn't maintain the pace and Boston made a game of it with a second-half run. Parker, in particular, gave the team a lift in the first half with perhaps his best defensive play of the year after forcing turnovers on two straight Boston possessions at one point. "That's what I'm supposed to do, change the game in that way". We played great in the first six minutes of the game.

Looking at the betting trends, the Bucks are 8-20 ATS in their last 28 games against a team with a winning record, 1-6 ATS in their last seven Conference Quarterfinals games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall.

"The second unit turned down some shots that they normally take", Casey said.

"'And the fact Giannis didn't go with the 'Do you know who the f*** I am?' on the entire restaurant only furthers his case for being the most likable superstar in the NBA", Barstool Sports remarked about the incident. The levee broke on those guys. I feel ready. I feel strong enough to get back out there.

The Wizards tinkered with their rotations to try to keep the Raptors' reserves in check.

"Same mindset we had coming into this game", Brown said.

The series is now tied as it shifts back to Boston for Tuesday night's Game 5, thanks in large part to Rozier doing an invisible man impersonation in Milwaukee.

The Celtics had a chance to tie the game, but a Marcus Morris contested jump shot missed the mark.
