Incredible comeback! The Milwaukee Bucks win crime fiction in Boston thanks to Giannis and Holiday

The Milwaukee Bucks regained their lead in the series against the Boston Celtics. With a dramatic victory of 110-107, the reigning champion is now just one victory away from reaching the conference final.

Boston led for most of the game and was up 14 points early in the fourth quarter, but the Celtics were unable to end the game. This was secured on the one hand by the excellent Giannis Antetokounmpo (40 points, 16/27 FG, 11 rebounds, 7 turnovers) and on the other hand by several great games in the last minute.

Jrue Holiday (24 points, 9/24, 8 rebounds, 8 assists) denied the Celtics their last two chances to score points with a block and a theft against Marcus Smart at the last minute. Bobby Portis (14, 15 rebounds) had previously secured his team the lead with a putback.

In the end, it did not help the Celtics that Jayson Tatum (34, 12/29) and Jaylen Brown (26, 9/19, 8 rebounds, 6 assists) showed strong performances, or that Daniel Theis (11, 5/5) double-digit score. Boston is now battling elimination in Game 6 of Milwaukee.

Robert Williams is out with the Celtics

The Celtics were without Robert Williams in the match, which again struggled with knee problems – Grant Williams started for him. The usual quintet started with the Bucks.

Both teams initially took mainly threes, 13 of the first 18 attempts at throws came from the perimeter. Brown tried instead sometimes with a baseline can, then Tatum followed up from the middle distance. Holiday, on the other hand, held back, after a jumper from the guard led Milwaukee 19:14. Theis entered the field and was found under the basket several times for 6 points, it was 28:26 bucks after a quarter.
