Boston Celtics Small Forward Jayson Tatum

"One of the most important things that we can carry from this game moving forward is that we stayed disciplined and we trusted one another", Antetokounmpo said after the game (via ESPN).

The stakes couldn't be much clearer or more well-defined for the Celtics and Bucks heading into Tuesday's game at TD Garden. Stevens often used Smart in a reserve role during the regular season. The 7-foot-1 Maker has turned into disruptive presence after playing sparingly in the first two games. However, taking on the responsibility to be one of top scoring options on the Celtics in only his second year in the league is no easy task. "We made some shots that helped, but it was about teamwork". Each team has two wins as they head back to Boston. The teams were tied several times midway through the fourth, but a tip shot by Thaddeus Young wth 6:13 left gave the Pacers the lead as fans in IN went wild.

Opponents shot just 43.0 percent with Smart on the floor this season, meanwhile, which stood as the seventh-lowest percentage in the National Basketball Association among players with at least 50 games played in 2017-18.

Elsewhere, Bradley Beal scored 31 points, while John Wall had 27, and the Washington Wizards beat Toronto 106-98 to level their Eastern Conference series at two games apiece. After two strong performance at home in the playoffs, Brown was getting the attention he deserves. For Boston, Stevens gave Greg Monroe just five minutes in Game 4 after he was effective in Game 3, posting a double-double.

Middleton added 23 points and made several key defensive plays, including the final stop on Morris and forcing a turnover in transition that set up Brogdon's three-pointer.

There was no looking back from there as Holtby helped to right the ship and win the next four games in a row. Heading into Philadelphia, the Penguins picked up where they left off in the regular season.

The Celtics have had their offensive struggles in the series, shooting 44.2 percent from the field and 38.2 percent from beyond the arc.

"We got the look we wanted ..." "He has a tremendous will to win, a tremendous drive to play the game and trying to play it the right way".

And unlike his first return from a thumb ailment, which obviously came with Smart at less than 100 percent despite an 11-game absence, Smart clearly does not believe like his thumb is holding him back from jumping back into action.

BelAir Cantina issued a statement on social media Sunday, publicly apologizing to the 23-year-old Athens native after he stood and waited for a table at one of their six Milwaukee-area locations only to leave without ever being seated. They got absolutely blitzed in the first halves of both games as they were outscored by a total of 39 points. Their defense will be even more suffocating, and the offense won't be so hard to manufacture.
