Celtics, NBA Twitter react to Boston’s 110-107 Game 5 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks

By Justin Quinn

The Boston Celtics were sitting on a 14-point lead in the second half of their Game 5 contest with the Milwaukee Bucks, only to see a lack of rebounding and defensive lapses see them lose the tilt 110-107, falling into a 2-3 series deficit as the Eastern Conference semifinals heads back to Wisconsin.

It was clearly not how the Celtics and their fans expected the game to end, surprising even the NBA analysts who were dialed into the intense game with the Bucks’ impressive comeback. All took to the league’s unofficial social media site to share their thoughts on how the game went, tweeting their ebullience — and then dismay — as the game fell apart for the Celtics.

Let’s take a look at some of the better reactions to Milwaukee’s Game 5 win on Twitter Wednesday night.
