Game 1 in the best-of-7 Eastern Conference quarterfinals matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics was a roller coaster of big moments, with the Celtics pulling off the win 113-107 in overtime. Each team held a double-digit lead at one point in the game, however, it was the final minute of regulation where the craziness began. Trailing 96-93 with 15 seconds left, Malcolm Brogdon hit a game-tying three to even the score at 96 with 10.2 seconds left in regulation. Boston’s Terry Rozier appeared to have hit the game-winning shot, a step-back 3 with 00.5 seconds remaining when the Bucks called its final timeout. The inbound, a catch-and-shoot situation went to Khris Middleton, who hit a 35-foot jump shot at the buzzer to tie the game. The shot was reviewed and Middleton did indeed get the shot off in time, with the ball leaving his hand with 00.1 seconds remaining. In overtime, it was all Celtics, outscoring the Bucks 14-8 in the extra period. Al Horford scored 24 to lead Boston in the win. For Milwaukee, Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 35 to lead all scorers, with Middleton adding 31 in the loss. Game 2 of the series will be played Tuesday, in Boston, with tip-off at 7 pm CST.
