The Celtics struggled to handle Milwaukee's pressure and made it clear to the officials repeatedly that they felt they were hit by Bucks defenders. "The crowd was great tonight, they got us going".

Rozier, the cocky foil of Bucks guard Bledsoe, said, "They had the crowd behind them and they played hard".

Too many turnovers (18) cost the C's. "Luckily, it was worth one". But much of the game after the first quarter was played in desperation mode.

Sometime on Saturday, the Celtics likely sat in a conference room at their hotel to go over the video from Friday night's mess.

The Bucks wanted it more.

. Even though basketball is a game of runs, the Bucks were able to withstand Boston's and hold the lead going into the final quarter. The tables turned, however, in Game 3.


Anunoby 4-5 2-2 12, Ibaka 1-4 1-2 3, Valanciunas 6-8 1-1 14, Lowry 6-14 2-2 19, DeRozan 10-22 2-2 23, Powell 1-3 2-2 5, Miles 2-7 4-5 9, Siakam 2-3 0-0 5, Nogueira 0-0 0-0 0, Poeltl 2-3 1-1 5, Brown 1-5 0-0 2, Wright 2-8 2-2 6. In a stark contrast to how the teams looked at the TD Garden, Boston was now the group who seemed checked out and Milwaukee was the group who seemed checked in.

"I told him we had to bring killer mentality back", Antetokounmpo said. "Everybody that played came in ready to go", Antetokounmpo said. "There's nothing that he did differently today", Rozier said. The Bucks continued to shoot the ball well but added some grit along with a defensive element to their attack, which really set the tone in the game. As a team, the Bucks shot a healthy 57 percent from the field and 16 of 33 from the three-point line but it was really their defense that gave them the early spark as they outscored the Celtics by 58-35 in the first half to put the game away early. "Thon being in his second year and playing the way he did is huge for us". We've been the harder playing team, so why stop now? "Quick turnaround.so we'll have to do it again on Sunday", Prunty said.

The Bucks addressed some of their plaguing problems.

.

In order to get that win, Milwaukee had to rely on some very surprising, and welcome, contributions from the fringes of their roster. Maker got extended minutes only because starting center John Henson missed the game with a sore back. "He wasn't always there meeting somebody, he was just continuing to stay in the play".

Bucks interim head coach Joe Prunty tossed Dellavedova into the game in the third minute of the first quarter with the Bucks down 5-6. Maker had a team high plus-minus (+23). Eric Bledsoe (8 of 13) and Jabari Parker (7 of 12) also shot well and contributed 17 points each.
