The Bucks, who have not won an National Basketball Association playoff series since 2001, have been losers in seven consecutive first-round playoff series.

Terry Rozier added 23 points, four rebounds and three assists for Boston in his first career playoff start.

"We've been down a lot, a lot of injuries, and we've always found a way", Horford said.

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.

Khris Middleton saved the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of the playoffs with a deep, buzzer-beating three-pointer to force overtime against the Boston Celtics.

Togadia's run of VHP is over
Togadia has lately been at loggerheads with senior BJP leaders and had claimed that there was threat to his life. Togadia has held that position since 2011, though he had been the driving force of the organisation since 2003.

The two sides are pretty evenly matched on the court, despite the injuries of Hayward and Irving for the Celtics, with maybe Milwaukee having an edge, but the main difference between the two teams is the coaching.

"I know the IN game when I first hurt it, it felt like there was a knot IN the ball", Smart said.

Brodgon hit a 3-pointer to tie the game at 96 with 10.3 seconds to go before Terry Rozier's go-ahead 3 with 0.5 on the clock.

Up 70-66 entering the fourth quarter, Boston took a double-digit lead at 86-76 on Morris' putback dunk with 4:27 remaining.

Antetokounmpo made one of two foul shots with 14.8 seconds left, but he fouled out of the game while going for the rebound on his miss.

Smart has been one of Boston's more versatile players this season, showing the ability to defend multiple positions in addition to coming up with big plays in the clutch.

Boston salted the win at the line after that.

Middleton hit a desperation 3-pointer from near mid-court as time expired to send it to overtime.

Smart took part in shooting drills Sunday and said he expects to return by the second round at the latest.

The Bucks led 47-44 at halftime.

Eric Staal and his line of course must be better than they were in game one, but again, that is an easy finger point situation. He beat Jason Zucker down the boards and bested goalie Devan Dubnyk on the blocker side over this right shoulder.
