Horford, Celtics hold off Bucks for 3-2 edge

Burke Celtics Jayson Tatum Jaylen Brown Boston

He has been out since before the playoffs following thumb surgery last March. He played 25 minutes wearing a protective splint and had a key assist to Horford late from the bottom of a scrum beneath three Milwaukee players. "I didn't think he got the ball off so I said, you know, 'that's a shot clock violation.' That was my discussion". "They weren't taking it from me". Terry Rozier proved the spark finishing with 16 points and a team-high five assists.

The Celtics' mission going into Game 5 of their series against the Bucks Tuesday night at the TD Garden is clear, at least to Jaylen Brown.

The Bucks fed off their home crowd energy in Games 3 and 4 jumping out to big leads in the first quarter in both games. Middleton scored later and was fouled to get Milwaukee within 84-79, but he failed to complete the three-point play.

Smart likely will get time against Eric Bledsoe and Kris Middleton of the Bucks.

Blast at election centre in Afghan capital, at least 31 dead
The Taliban denied involvement in the attack, which indicates it may have been carried out by an Islamic State affiliate. He said 119 people were wounded, among them 17 children and 52 women, and "the tolls could still rise".

The Bucks entered the game shooting an National Basketball Association playoff-best 54 percent from the field, but they hit just 37 percent for the game (32 of 87) - a series low. They will need them to come out strong against the Bucks like they did in Games 1-2 rather than off too slow starts like Games 3-4.

If just a few of those shots had gone in, the Bucks would not have been in a position where the blown call impacted them as much.

In the end I do think this series will be ending tonight because the Heat will not get enough from Wade, Whiteside and the rest of the supporting cast to outscore Embid, SImmons, and the switch-blade offensive juggernaut in Philly.

Bucks: F John Henson missed his third straight game with back soreness. Shortly after, Milwaukee made their first run of the half, as Shabazz Muhammad checked in and scored 11 points in just five minutes for Milwaukee, bringing them within four points.
