Boston Celtics lose 103-101 to Bucks
The Celtics had their chances to win. Even late. Even after climbing all the way back from a 14-point deficit.
But Al Horford’s last-second tip-in was deemed too late as the clock went off before the ball left his fingers.
The Celtics fell 103-101 to the Bucks on Saturday at Fiserv Forum.
Boston now trails Milwaukee 2-1 in the Eastern Conference semifinals, with a key Game 4 coming up at 7:30 p.m. Monday.
It was a treacherous third quarter that made life so difficult for the Celtics.
They were doubled up 34-17 by the Bucks in the frame as Milwaukee stole the lead and momentum behind its home court.
