Celtics vs. Bucks live stream: Watch Game 2 of second-round clash originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
The Milwaukee Bucks are the defending NBA champions for a reason. The Boston Celtics discovered that very quickly Sunday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals at TD Garden, shooting just 33% from the floor against a stout Milwaukee defense en route to a 101-89 loss.
Boston limited Giannis Antetokounmpo to 24 points on 36% shooting, but the Bucks star still left a huge imprint on the game, racking up 13 rebounds and 12 assists to become the first player in franchise history with multiple playoff triple-doubles.
But the Celtics bounced back Tuesday night in Game 2 at TD Garden, beating Milwaukee 109-86.
Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown stepped up after subpar offensive performances in Game 1 -- 33 combined points on 32.3% shooting. Marcus Smart did not play after suffering a right quad contusion Sunday.
