Giannis Antetokounmpo finishes assist shy of triple-double in Bucks' loss

Giannis Antetokounmpo finishes assist shy of triple-double in Bucks' loss

It takes a complete team effort to do that on defense, but the Celtics do not get a complete team effort without Smart, who brings everything together on defense and makes the kind of plays that can not be done without him. With the win, the Celtics now lead the series 3-2.

Down by five points with just over a minute remaining in the fourth quarter, the Milwaukee Bucks got a crucial stop against the Boston Celtics.

WESTBROOK FINED Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City was fined $10,000 and assessed a postgame technical foul for initiating a confrontation with Utah center Rudy Gobert after Game 4 on Monday. Dario Saric had 24 points and five rebounds.

With their defensive and spiritual leader back on the floor, the Celtics played not only their edgiest game of the series, but also their most effective with a 92-87 Game 5 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Dellavedova finished Game 3 playing 16 mintutes, contributing five points and four assists, though as is so often the case with Delly, the box score stats only tell a fraction of the story. "If he feels good, then he's been cleared physically to go".

If the Heat have any chance of extending this series they really need to buckle down and play with the same grit they have played with the entire series.

Khris Middleton led the scoring for the Bucks with 23 points while Giannis Antetokounmpo had 16 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. It was unquestionably a defensive-minded switch, and Ojeleye delivered with 31 strong minutes (5 points on just three shots to go with 7 rebounds).

A big reason for Toronto's problems has been the absence of backup point guard Fred VanVleet, who has an injured right shoulder and played just three minutes so far, sitting out three of the four games entirely. "We're looking forward to being able to go back home". "If he does play, we're prepared for that, and if he doesn't, obviously we've played a few games here without him", said Joe Prunty, Bucks' head coach.

Smart was then fouled on a drive, and hit both free throws for a 48-37 lead with 3.0 seconds on the clock before Brown's steal preserved the 11-point lead into the break. In that circumstance, the Sixers will face the victor in the conference semifinals beginning Monday. New Orleans, coached by former Golden State top assistant Alvin Gentry, swept Portland in the first round.

The league made the announcement Tuesday. Smart came off the bench and saw his first action with 4:08 left in the first quarter.

He intervened in an incident between Gobert and Oklahoma City backup point guard Raymond Felton. The Thunder trail the Jazz 3-1 and host Utah on Wednesday in an elimination game.
