Milwaukee's Jabari Parker and John Henson each ranked in the top-five for most efficient players on points-per-paint touch * a href="https://stats.nba.com/players/touches/?sort=PTS_PER_PAINT_TOUCH&dir=1&Season=2017-18&SeasonType=Playoffs&PerMode=Totals&CF=PAINT_TOUCHES*GE*10&DateTo=04%2F27%2F2018" target="_blank" rel="noopener" *(minimum: 10 paint touches) during the playoffs.

Game 1 is in Boston on Monday night (Tuesday NZT). "That's just another thing". It's going to make them better players. "He just stayed with it and he definitely got rewarded".

Saturday was a tough time for Joe Prunty and the Milwaukee Bucks. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Eric Bledsoe both dealt with foul trouble.

Boston certainly took advantage of the home court, winning all of their four games at TD Garden, and will now go on to face the Philadelphia 76ers in Boston.

Bledsoe's turnaround hook shot capped a 13-2 run to bring Milwaukee within 32-30 with 8:47 left in the second, but the Celtics were soon back up by double digits and went in to the locker room up by eight. It's a new experience. Now we know what it takes to win a Game 7. "Because we know it gets insane, you've gotta have a spot". "But we've been doing this all year". "Our fans really gave us that energy".

Jayson Tatum tallied 20 points for the Celtics. Antetokounmpo, whose blend of size and athleticism has earned him the nickname the "Greek Freak", finished with 22 points and nine rebounds. In a Game 5 Celtic win, Ojeleye clearly bothered Antetokounmpo and limited him to only 10 field-goal tries.

With Brown leaving the game with a right hamstring issue at the 3:04 mark of the second inning, that put Smart into the starting lineup for the second half.

With Brown not returning to the floor, Tatum stepped up big time with 20 points (7-17 FG), six rebounds and five assists.

"They are playing great; they have a great team, a great coach and I think that everybody talks about (Joel) Embiid and (Ben) Simmons and rightfully so, but the skill they have added to their team and their other young guys getting better, obviously (JJ) Redick's presence has just opened everything up", Stevens said. S-- ain't gonna happen.
