Bucks score against Celtics: Milwaukee holds off Boston comeback attempt in Game 3 to take series lead 2-1

After trailing by as much as 14 points in the second half, the Boston Celtics staged a furious comeback in the final frame of the game to take the lead with just under two minutes left in regulation time after a pair of free throws by Jaylen Brown. Ultimately, that lead was short-lived as the Milwaukee Bucks scored four of the game’s final five points to come away with a 103-101 win and a 2-1 series lead.

Boston had plenty of chances to send this game to overtime, but Al Horford’s attempt to tip came just after the final buzzer. Although this one didn’t fall in love with him, Horford had a fantastic game for the Celtics scoring 25 points and grabbing 15 boards. Jaylen Brown paced Boston offensively with 27 points and 12 rebounds but, in the end, it was no match for the Bucks’ offensive attack as Giannis Antetokounmpo was just too dominant finishing with a game-high 42 points, 12 rebounds and eight. assist.
