The first quarter was a fairly even affair up until the final four minutes, as the Celtics pulled ahead to take a 29-17 lead into the second quarter. During that stretch, six different Celtics registered points. He said it was his first time shooting since the surgery. Rookie Jayson Tatum added 19 points and 10 rebounds.

Part of the reason the Bucks were in bad spots is because they were hampered by turnovers.

In a league where only two-dozen players play in the All-Star Game each year, it's not easy to have one of those players on your team, let alone multiple.

With their playoff matchup looming, both teams are ready to go to war with each other, in hopes of finding a way to get to the NBA Finals.

He's not going to lie to me, he understands that we need him healthy. "When he's locked in and healthy, he's very risky ". Sanchez lowered his ERA to 1.29 through two starts and three appearances after signing a minor-league deal in mid-March.

An acrobatic, spinning layup by Tatum gave Boston a 108-105 lead in overtime.

Irving had been hindered with knee soreness this season and underwent surgery to remove a support wire in his knee, which later turned into an infection and led to a second surgery to remove two screws from the same knee and is expected to be out four to five months.

With the Bucks, the issues is that they're the opposite of the Celtics: they don't have team chemistry.

The Bucks closed to 89-87 before Marcus Morris made a falling down jumper just inside the arc to make it 91-87. But Horford was steady again after being fouled, connecting on two more from the line with 15.2 seconds left. He's usually in the right position, and he never shoots his team out of a game.

The actor has been receiving rave reviews for his act as Dan, a hotel management trainee, from both critics and fellow actors. And if the positive word of mouth continues, the film may rake in good moolah before fading away at the commercial circuits.

But after a Milwaukee timeout advanced the ball to half court, Middleton matched it with his own 3 over Brown as time expired.

The Bucks are the only team in the postseason with an interim coach, and Joe Prunty will have to prove himself against coaching wizard Brad Stevens. "That's what this series is going to be".

The loss of two point guards and how the Bucks have played the Celtics thus far has created a flawless storm for Horford to shine. Outscored the Celtics 58-44 in the paint.

The Milwaukee Bucks will find out if they dodged a bullet this afternoon when they open up the first round of the NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs against the Boston Celtics.

Meanwhile, a CBI team also visited the hotel in Unnao where the victim is housed under police protection to take her statement. After being missing for a week, her body was found on January 17.

Despite a dejecting end to regulation, the Celtics showed tremendous resolve in the overtime period, and it resulted in them earning the overtime win. That lone start belonged to Baynes.
