Giannis Antetokounmpo With Poster And Game-Winner As Bucks Beat Celtics

And it came in the final seconds.

Milwaukee will again rely on Antetokounmpo to try to steal game 5 on the road.

The young Aussie had five blocks off the bench - backing up the five he had in Game 3 - and contributed eight points and two rebounds in his 30 minutes off the bench. Parker, who combined for two points and six rebounds in Games 1 and 2, finished with 16 points and seven rebounds.

And while there's no telling if Smart in the lineup will make that big a difference to the team's defense against the Bucks, there's no denying Smart playing tonight will provide a much-needed boost for Boston. He just couldn't hold off Antetokounmpo on the other end for the decisive tip- in.

It's hard not to respect a guy that cares so little about about the result of such a play.

Both teams traded clutch buckets down the stretch.

Ten of those rejections have come from Thon Maker, five in each game. Morris bent over in frustration near the Boston bench after his fadeaway hit the rim. "He's got everybody on the same level - we want to play just how he plays. We made some shots that helped, but it was about teamwork". Like in Game 3, they stormed out of the gates, taking a 24-17 lead after the first quarter. Stevens said he would likely only make a switch for matchup purposes. Milwaukee shot 52.1 percent from the floor in the contest, including 10 of 23 from beyond the arc, but lost the rebounding battle 43-36.

There have been some big games from reserve players in these playoffs already: Miami has gotten games of 28 and 25 points from Dwyane Wade and a 26-point effort from Kelly Olynyk, Philadelphia has seen Marco Belinelli reach 21 points twice so far, and Boston saw Greg Monroe get a double-double against the Bucks in only 23 minutes.

Wall had given Washington hope of a recovery after draining two free throws to take the Wizards back to within five points at 108-103 in the fourth quarter.

Bradley Beal scored 31 points and John Wall 27 as the Wizards were impressive in closing out their game against the Raptors, who were outscored 66-47 in the second half.

The Bucks won their two home games but that's been the trend in the series as the hosts have prevailed all four times. "We did a lot of great things in Game 4".

If Smart gets ultimately allowed to play in Game 5, then expect Shane Larkin's minutes to go down.

Toronto maintained a 20-point cushion through most of the first half, and they quickly passed their franchise record points tally of 63 to finish on 76 as the halftime buzzer sounded at the Air Canada Center.

While Brown did show some flaws through the first four games of the series, he is still showing us plenty of star potential. "It feels like nothing's there", he says. Before Game 2 in Boston, The Pick and Roll was able to ask Boston head coach Brad Stevens just that.

Game 5 will be played Tuesday in Boston.
