Bucks Points vs. Celtics: Giannis Antetokounmpo, defending champion, dominates Boston in Game One. 2022-05-01 14:44:16


The Milwaukee Bucks scored their first goal in their Eastern Conference semi-final encounter against the Boston Celtics with a stunning 101-89 road win in Game One. Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with a triple-double (24 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists) as the Bucks steal home. A court away from Boston in TD Garden.

He led the Celtics early on, but the Bucks quickly took control and didn’t hold back. Milwaukee held out solid through a long run in the third when Giannis went off the bench with four fouls. Meanwhile, Boston’s attack suffered miserably in the opening game. The team finished 28 for 84 shots (33 percent) in a loss, including only 10 2 point field goals. He panicked when Marcus Smart left late in the second quarter with a shoulder injury, but is back in what was a very physical competition.

The defending champions entered the series against Boston as underdogs, and without All-Star striker Khris Middleton likely the entire series. Match 2 is on Tuesday.
