C's Advance To 2nd Round With Blowout Win In Game 7

C's Advance To 2nd Round With Blowout Win In Game 7

Giannis Antetokounmpo, to no surprise, dominated in the paint all year.

They will meet the Philadelphia 76ers, with Game 1 in Boston on Monday night. "Some way, somehow, we figure it out". "I don't know who thought of that, but that was nice". For all the headaches Antetokounmpo presented - and there were plenty - Boston bigs had to otherwise worry only about Thon Maker and Tyler Zeller after John Henson didn't return after Game 2 of the series. Because of it, the Celtics that have squeezed out their best basketball despite the multiple subtractions to their roster.

Every time the Bucks looked like they were about to make a run in the final frame, Terry Rozier had an answer.

Terry Rozier (Who?) showed the world who he really is, closing out his great series with a fitting game.

But living in last evening's moment, the 112-96 dismantling of the Bucks was a measure of satisfaction this team deserves to savor - at least until this morning when they get served the Sixers scouting report for breakfast.

Al Horford provided not only his voice, but probably his best stretch of games in a Celtics uniform over the last seven games. "We've been doing this all year". "You know, we didn't want to treat this any differently. Milwaukee fought hard. They kept giving us shots, our guys stayed with it and eventually we wore them (out)".

This series took place a year after Allen Iverson took the 76ers to a surprise NBA Finals appearance.

Brown left Saturday's Game 7 win over the Bucks in the first half after suffering the injury and returned to the court for the second half.

Brown said it was diagnosed as a Grade 1 sprain. He was put on anti-inflammatory medication and will get an MRI on Sunday. He thinks he'll be ready for Game 1, but it's unclear if that will be the case, and even if he does play, he may not be at full speed.

"Whatever it takes, I wouldn't miss this series for the world", Brown said.

Tatum had nine points in the first, when the Celtics scored 15 straight points - including a tip-in by Antetokounmpo into the Boston hoop - and 20 of the last 22 to end the quarter with a 30-17 lead.

It wasn't quite "Beat L.A.!"

The Boston Celtics needed to change things up heading into Game 5 of their first-round series with the Milwaukee Bucks. Boston, after the disastrous Rick Pitino era, was finally back in the postseason with Paul Pierce and Antoine Walker leading the way.

"They are a bear to play against. But guys, they're still pretty doggone good without him", Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said beforehand. "But they're a big, physical team".

The Celtics played in their NBA-record 31st Game 7, improving to 23-8.

Khris Middleton had 32 to lead Milwaukee, which was denied its first playoff series victory since the 2000-01 season.
