Middleton took an inbounds pass roughly 35 feet from the basket and buried a three-pointer in the nick of time to send the game to overtime. During that stretch, six different Celtics registered points. Hayward was injured in the first five minutes of the opening game against the Cleveland Cavaliers and missed the entire season due to an ankle injury and surgery. That game gives us the best sense of what the playoff series will hold, as it featured most of the players the two teams will have available.

Antetokounmpo has been the best player in the four-game season series between these sides by a long, long way. He has also casually added 10.8 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 1.8 steals in these matchups.

Part of the reason the Bucks were in bad spots is because they were hampered by turnovers.

This time around, we have a number of players who will be playing a postseason game for the first time in their lives.

Tatum then grabbed an offensive rebound and drove for a 108-105 lead with 1:22 left in the extra session.

A four and a six ensued leaving just the solitary run to get from the remaining four balls. Mumbai: Hardik Pandya turned up for training on Friday but he is still a doubtful starter.

The Milwaukee Bucks shot 48.2 percent from the field while the Celtics shot 41.5 percent, and they still lost. Though he has progressed well in his rehab, he has been ruled out for the season and playoffs.

Antetokounmpo got free for a dunk. He's usually in the right position, and he never shoots his team out of a game. In comparison, his points per possession in half-court isolation or in the post are 0.88 and 0.92, respectively.

Though promising scoring nights have not been rare from other members of the Bucks, like Khris Middleton or Malcolm Brogdon, the Joe Prunty-led offense flows through the "Greek Freak". "Each little play is going to matter".

After starting the season as the league's most unsafe 3-point shooter, a regression to the mean was justifiably expected, but he has maintained a mark of 43.4% from long range, an fantastic number for a first-year player. Outscored the Celtics 58-44 in the paint. Well, because they will now be matched up with the Boston Celtics who are dealing with a plethora of injuries to their backcourt.

The NBA Playoffs officially begin later today, but the Boston Celtics won't begin their first-round series of the postseason until they host the Milwaukee Bucks at the TD Garden tomorrow. That lone start belonged to Baynes.
