Celtics Secure Big Road Win Over Bucks in Game One

To accomplish this, they have to go through the team that had the best record in the entire National Basketball Association this season, the Milwaukee Bucks.

Giannis Antetokounmpo #34 of the Milwaukee Bucks looks on against the Boston Celtics during Game One of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals of the 2019 NBA Playoffs on April 28, 2019 at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

However, Horford's most memorable play of the night undoubtedly came on the defensive end, as he succeeded where so many have failed this season, in stopping Antetokounmpo.

He was out there on the court in Game 1 of an Eastern Conference semifinal, wearing the same Celtics jersey as All-Star Kyrie Irving and dunking on Bucks MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer is expecting his star player to bounce back. Brown was scoring 19 points and helping Boston to an easy, 112-90 win.


Game two of the series is set for Tuesday night in Milwaukee.

"As great as he's been, he hasn't been flawless every night", Budenholzer said. This won't be easy given that Horford's sole goal in Game 2 will most likely be to keep him away from the basket and cancel out his three-point shots. When asked about the C's approach to The Greek Freak following the win, Brad Stevens refused to give away Boston's game plan.

Irving thinks the Celtics have been rounding into shape in the playoffs after an uneven regular season.

The Celtics depth could be Boston's secret to success against Antetokounmpo and the Bucks. Antetokounmpo leads his team in points, rebounds and assists.

Bucks: Starting guard Malcolm Brogdon, who is recovering from a partially torn plantar fascia in his right foot, remained out but took part in shooting drills before the game.
