Boston Celtics highlights: Bucks steal Game 5 at the buzzer 110-107 as series heads back to Milwaukee
Somehow, the Boston Celtics found a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory with ill-timed defensive lapses and a lack of awareness at several key junctures in the waning moments of the fourth quarter of their Game 5 tilt with the Milwaukee Bucks, the Bucks taking a dangerous 3-2 series lead as the East semis head back to Wisconsin after the Celtics failed to win Game 5 at TD Garden.
With Milwaukee star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and his Bucks battling back from a 14-point deficit (and in the Greek Freak’s case, a cut by his eye as well) to get the key 110-107 win, it will take a near-perfect effort over two games for Boston to have a real chance at advancing.
All is not lost, but with two must-win games to contend with, the Celtics will have their work cut out for them if they don’t want their season to end in the second round.
