Celtics take series, respect in Game 7

Simmons roasted by fans as Celtics take game one

The Boston Celtics needed to change things up heading into Game 5 of their first-round series with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Giannis Antetokounmpo didn't have his best game in the finale last night, but he was exhausted. The Celtics have been the most resilient team in the league, overcoming a myriad of injuries to play the league's best defense in the regular season and dispatch the Milwaukee Bucks in a seven-game series. The Celtics are 23-8 in Game 7 overall. As a team, the Celtics won't be too happy that they weren't able to snag a road win, but they finished the series with a bang as they blew out the Bucks by 16 points in Game 7 to finish on a high.

And while the list of contributors to the win is lengthy, there was no question Horford's play more than anyone else, was what put Boston over the top.

"Al's been a stabilizing force since he walked into our locker room", Stevens said.

The Celtics kept their foot on the gas down the closing stretch of the third with Tatum knocking down a huge three with 1:04 left in the third, completing an 11-2 Celtics run, as they would take an 81-67 lead into the final quarter of Game 7. Besides that, Rozier has really locked in with Al Horford with four dimes going to him, and all of Rozier's dimes led to shots in the paint or a corner 3-pointer.

"They are playing great; they have a great team, a great coach and I think that everybody talks about (Joel) Embiid and (Ben) Simmons and rightfully so, but the skill they have added to their team and their other young guys getting better, obviously (JJ) Redick's presence has just opened everything up", Stevens said.

The two also had a brief dust-up in Game 5 in which Bledsoe was called for a flagrant foul for shoving Rozier in the chest and Rozier got a technical for retaliating.

Boston's Jaylen Brown exited the game late in the first half with a sore right hamstring.

The company said earlier this month that it has 100 million Prime members , the first time it has released the number. In the previous quarter, which included the busy holiday shopping season, it had a profit of more than $1.8 billion.

The Bucks never got within single digits after that, and the Celtics led by as many as 19. "I decided that's not going to happen".

Brown said it was diagnosed as a Grade 1 sprain.

Aftermath: Boston went on to have an awesome series with the East's other Big 3 (Miami), but lost in seven games and eventually broke up.

Then Horford went for two hoops and Rozier added two more to restore the building's heart rate to a more reasonable level.

"It was hard all series to close the last two minutes", Antetokounmpo said.

In the fourth quarter of Game 7, the Celtics aired a video that featured Drew Bledsoe.

"Man, that was special", Rozier said. "You can see it on his face, 'I've been here, I know what to do.' Having him out there, on the team, his presence, it's invaluable every day". He was spotted riding an exercise bicycle at the start of the second half and was later deemed available to return but did not.
