Milwaukee announces the color against Boston

Boston has come down from its cloud. And with a crash. Impressive at the end of the season and during the series against the Nets that they “swept” in the first round, the Celtics took an entry slap against the defending champion in the Eastern Conference semi-finals on Sunday. Yet deprived of Khris Middleton – who should not be able to return anytime soon – Milwaukee was able to impose its law on the opposing floor to recover the advantage of the field by winning by a wide margin (89-101). And without shaking thanks to the activity of its two leaders Giánnis Antetokoúnmpo (24 pts, 13 rebounds, 12 pds and 2 blocks) and Jrue Holiday (25 pts, 10 pds, 5 pds).

If the Bucks put the intensity necessary to start this series well, Boston also “offered” this match in a certain way to the champions. The Celtics have indeed accumulated lost balls (18 against 13). And like a not very inspired Jayson Tatum (21 pts at 6 out of 18 in shooting), they were clumsy to conclude this meeting with a pitiful percentage (33.3%) of success in shooting.

Tatum and Brown contained

The gap finally really built up in the second quarter. Boston then stammered his basketball. And the Bucks were quick to take advantage of opposing errors to take off (46-56, at the break) and no longer be afraid. Because while Giannis Antetokoúnmpo signed his second triple double in playoftfs, the defense of Milwaukee closed the floodgates, forcing Boston to multiply the shots behind the arc (18 out of 50).

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown paid for the special treatment they received to finish 10 out of 31 in the shoot. Far from their effectiveness against Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and co. A reaction is already expected in Massachusetts at the next game, on Tuesday.
