How the Boston Celtics can bounce back in Game 5

Giannis Antetokounmpo came to the rescue, tipping in a missed shot for the game winning bucket with 5.1 seconds to play.

Smart has been participating in shoot-arounds before each playoff game, hoping to gain some sort of comfort playing while wearing a splint on his finger.

But Plan B, or C, or whatever play it was that resulted in a rushed Morris fadeaway, should have led to a better look, preferably from longer range. The Bucks are 19-24 on the road, but they opened the season with a win at TD Garden. After watching Boston almost storm back from a 20-point deficit in Game 4, he believes that the team is getting used to facing different postseason environments and will be able to handle the rising pressure as the series wears on. Brown essentially single-handedly kept the Celtics in the game, helping Boston go on a huge second-half surge to bring down a 20-point deficit to just eight heading into the final frame of action, but ultimately, it was not enough to deliver the win. After being more passive last season, Brown has taken it upon himself to become someone the Celtics can count on to make big shots. Brown has been asked to step up in the absence of Irving, and has embraced the opportunity. The Bucks' two best players were clutch in the closing seconds of a tense victory, another sign of maturity for the one of the league's up-and-coming teams.

■ One of Stevens's adjustments in Game 4 was to use Semi Ojeleye as a defensive agitator.

Golden State outscored San Antonio 29-21 in the third quarter and went on a 13-5 run beginning two minutes into the fourth quarter to pull within 88-86 with 6 minutes remaining. Many in the National Basketball Association believe role players perform much better at home than on the road, but the Bucks can't afford their supporting cast to suddenly disappear.

Marcus Smart underwent surgery in mid-March to fix a torn ligament in his right thumb, and last played on March 11 against the Indiana Pacers.

Antetokounmpo added seven rebounds and five assists, while Middleton scored 23 points.

The situation arose after BelAir Cantina in Milwaukee couldn't clear a table for Antetokounmpo and his girlfriend, Mariah Riddlesprigger, following the Bucks' 104-102 win Sunday over the Boston Celtics.

The Bucks did what they need to do at home in Games 3 and 4. Play got chippy and the Celtics limited the Bucks' transition game. I don't think he's the same in Game 5.
