30 points by Giannis was not enough for the Bucks, who fell by 14 at the TD Garden in Boston. Jaylen Brown also had 30 in this contest that featured some bad free throw shooting.
It was quite the game at the TD Garden, with the Boston Celtics prevailing in overtime to win their opening playoff game. Terry Rozier and the C’s thought they won it with a three with 1.5 seconds left, but Khris Middleton of the Bucks tied it at the buzzer. Boston pulled ahead later into the overtime and never looked back.
