Bucks put Celtics on the brink, display championship pedigree

BOSTON- What happened?

Not really-What just happened?

The Bucks defeated the Celtics 110-107 on Wednesday to take a 3-2 lead in the series.

And seriously—how did that happen?

“We beat ourselves,” said Boston guard Marcus Smart.

Coach Ime Udoka said: “We know that we missed a unique opportunity tonight.”

Forward Jaylen Brown added: “We gave it away.”

In wild, unpredictable NBA playoffs – the Grizzlies knock out the Warriors how many? – this game could top them all. Ten minutes to go, Boston is 14 up and this game is over. It wasn’t like the Celtics were playing great. Far from it. Jayson Tatum had 34 points … but needed 29 shots to get them. Brown had 26. Game 4 hero Al Horford had eight. Daniel Theis, who was dusted again with Robert Williams out, was the only Celtics sub in double figures.
