Celtics stop Bucks for 3-2 series lead

Celtics stop Bucks for 3-2 series lead

Although Boston didn't score on the following possession, they were able to bring the clock down to 48 seconds with a five-point lead intact.

In today's edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we catch up with all of the reactions to the Game 5 loss, including overall reactions from the players, Giannis Antetokounmpo's thoughts on a frustrating night for him, and the opinions on a contentious missed shot clock violation.

Horford had 22 points and 14 rebounds while Smart made an impact in his first game since mid-March, coming off the bench to provide nine points, five rebounds, four assists and three blocks in his first action since right thumb surgery.

With 28 seconds to play and falling to his knees in traffic, Smart found a wide open Al Horford for an easy two-handed slam to give the C's an 86-79 lead.

The C's now lead the series 3-2 with game six back in Milwaukee.

The Bucks also got 17 points and eight rebounds from Jabari Parker. In fact, the only real reason the game stayed close was the continued stellar play of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton who each scored 11 first half points.

The Celtics held the Bucks to just 36.8 percent shooting from the field (32-87) and an abysmal 27.3 percent from 3-point land (9-33). Rebounds - M 37 (Antetokounmpo 10), B 50 (Horford 14).

Asked if he was given an explanation for the mistake, Bucks head coach Joe Prunty said: "Not a good enough one".

Bucks vexed with non-call on Celtics' shot clock violation (read here): Chris Forsberg of ESPN rounded up the reactions of Milwaukee's players to the costly 24-second violation that wasn't called in the game's closing minutes.

"The ball got to go in or it's got to be an airball shot for the referee to review the shot", he said. The ball clearly was still on Horford's hand after the timer expired to the point that multiple Bucks stopped playing on the play. While the Bucks should be mad, it was a two-possession game and they lost a possession late, so it did not decide the game. He missed five of his seven shots and was noticeably rusty on offense, but he was back to his tenacious self defensively. They then got face-to-face and had to be separated.

Though they shot just 32 percent from deep, the Celtics managed to can another 10 threes Tuesday night. Instead, they put themselves in the position where one call changed everything.

Again, the Bucks would've had a considerable uphill climb regardless, but the non-call all but buried them.
