Bucks advance to ECF, manhandle Celtics


Boston was the team on the rise.

Irving, who told a group of season-ticket holders in October that he meant to resign, backtracked on that pledge in February when he proclaimed "Ask me on July 1" after being pressed on his intentions for this summer. And they deserved this series. Milwaukee entered this season still feeling at least a year, maybe more, away.

Boston went down without a fight.

Rahul Niranjan flew in from North Carolina for Game 5. "It was a team effort". The Bruins open the Eastern Conference final on Thursday night against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Morris will be one of many National Basketball Association players testing free agency this summer. "He loves playing. He's very, very excited to be playing". Boston appeared to have chemistry issues arise throughout the middle of the season, with Irving at the middle of it.

You could start to see some cracks during the regular season.

Hill has been an integral role player for Milwaukee in this series.

The Bucks used balanced scoring and a stingy defense to eliminate the fourth-seeded Celtics, who had reached the Eastern finals against Cleveland each of the past two seasons.

The Bucks shot 42-for-94 (44.7%) from the field while holding the Celtics to 29-for-93 (31.2%) shooting for the game. As the Bucks prepare for the Raptors or Sixers, they may only be getting better. But he has never won a championship, so if he gets word that Irving plans to leave and it becomes unlikely that the team will acquire Davis, Horford may seek a better opportunity to win.

"They played like they wanted it", Irving said. And Milwaukee held Boston to only 19 points in the first quarter, the fewest the Celtics have scored in an opening quarter this postseason.

On the other end of the court, the Bucks had a balanced attack.

The big picture: Since suffering through a rough Game 1, Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks have imposed their will on their opponent en route to three straight wins.

However, Antetokounmpo had only had 6 points on 2-of-6 shooting in the first half, it was his teammates stepping up (Antetokounmpo did have six assists).

The Celtics will be able to offer Irving five years and $189 million while other teams can only give him four years and $151 million, but Irving has given no indications how much that matters, if at all.
