  • NBA playoff

It turned out it wasn't.

The Celtics knew that Horford would have to be special to win anything in the playoffs, and he delivered in game one.

James, seeking his ninth career trip to the NBA Finals and fourth league title, had not dropped a first-round playoff game since the New York Knicks beat Miami in the fourth game of the 2012 opening round, a minor setback on the Heat's title run, a career first for James. Then, Rozier got free and nailed his own three with just half a second left on the clock.

James had won 21 first-round playoff games in a row until the rout, having never before lost the opener in a first-round National Basketball Association postseason series. Brown finished with 20 points.

"But we stayed resilient, went to overtime, and got the win".

Trying to slow him must be a team effort, Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.

James said falling behind in a series just motivates him to step up his game. It's just a really resilient group of kids.

3-point goals - Mil 8-21 (Middleton 5-7, Brogdon 2-6, Terry 1-1, Parker 0-1, Antetokounmpo 0-1, Bledsoe 0-2, Snell 0-3), B 11-26 (Rozier 4-9, Morris 2-4, J.Brown 2-5, Horford 1-2, Tatum 1-3, Larkin 1-3).

Al Horford led the way for Boston with 24 points and 12 rebounds, while Rozier added 23 points.

The game went to extra time following a wild finish in regulation that included back-to-back 3-pointers in the closing seconds. And he made it.

Further, officials said that eggs emerging from this farm were likely connected to 22 reported cases of salmonella infections . The egg cartons needs to be labeled together with packing dates ranging throughout 102 from 011, with the plant range P-1065.

"The coaches did a great job getting our mind off it and getting us to continue to play".

Slumped in his chair at the podium following an exhausting loss to the Celtics, Giannis Antetokounmpo was inevitably going to be asked about the controversial sixth foul that ended his afternoon and the Bucks' chances in Game 1.

As the Bucks get set for Game 2 on Tuesday in Boston, Antetokounmpo is hopeful that his team can clean up the mistakes that forced it into such a precarious position in the first place.

The first game of the playoff series between the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics came down to the wire, and Terry Rozier appeared to seal the win for the home team with a dagger three right before time expired, only, it wasn't the end after all. They opened overtime on a torrid pace, combining for 11 points in two minutes.

Boston leads the series 1-0.

Antetokounmpo was able to tie up Tatum for a jump ball off a defensive miss and got to the line for one shot with 53.6 seconds to go.

An acrobatic, spinning layup by Tatum gave Boston a 108-105 lead in overtime. On the other hand, Giannis Antetokounmpo had a monster game with a double-double of 35 points and 13 rebounds along with seven assists and three thefts; Middleton followed him with 31 points, eight boards, six dishes, and a couple of steals, while Malcolm Brogdon scored 16 points off the bench.

Rozier responds to the Bucks with a made three-pointer, and then Middleton returned the favor to pull back within two with 2:12 on the clock.

"Yeah", Horford said, "this is probably the biggest challenge". "I know for a fact even if I hadn't reached out to him yet I've got him in my ear, I've got him in my corner".
