The Bucks vs Celtics game was close like many NBA games in the restart so far.
The Bucks came out on fire starting the game on a 17-2 run. It looked like near the beginning of the game, the Celtics had no answer for the Bucks on either side of the ball.
The bench unit came on with some starters and went on a run led by Jaylen Brown’s solid play and Marcus Smart making hustle plays.
Jayson Tatum was ice cold in the first quarter. Tatum was forcing shots at the rim and was not finding a groove like he usually does. Tatum was shooting 1/6 at the end of the first quarter.
In the second quarter, Tatum entered foul trouble and picked up his 3rd foul early in the quarter.
The Celtics picked up their defense a lot in the second half, but still trailed by six heading into the half.
Jaylen Brown entered foul trouble in the third quarter picking up his fifth foul.
Although the Celtics were in foul trouble early, the game was tied heading into the fourth quarter.
The fourth quarter was back and forth between the two teams, but late into the fourth quarter a foul not called on Giannis sparked some controversy.
Giannis had five fouls with a few minutes left and Giannis hit Daniel Theis in the groin which would have led to Giannis being fouled out, but after review the refs declared it a no foul.
The Bucks went on to win the game 119-112.
