Celtics Comeback Falls Short, Lose to Bucks 104-102 in Game 4

Length and athleticism make the Milwaukee Bucks a risky team with the ball. The return of Smart (which Rozier believes will happen in Game 5) will help on the defensive end, but he needs to get back to making life miserable for Bledsoe, who shot just 9-for-25 in those two first games. The emphatic slam pushed Milwaukee's lead back to seven at a crucial moment in the game.

The possibility of Smart's return brightened up the day for the C's, who are looking to bounce back and gain a 3-2 lead in the series after dropping Games 3 and 4 in Milwaukee.

Facing the possibility of going down 3-1 in the first round, the Cavaliers pulled out the win, 104-100, and sent the series back to OH for Game 5.

Will Boston revert to its dominant form and cover, or will Milwaukee take the upper hand by getting the first road win in this series? Khris Middleton also showed up in a big way, netting 23 points with six boards, two assists, two steals and two blocks while Jabari Parker had 16 points and seven rebounds off the bench. One of them was this insane buzzer-beater off the glass with Draymond Green all over him.

Brad Stevens revealed this morning prior to shootaround that Smart had a reevaluation on his right thumb yesterday and it went as well as anyone could have hoped.

The Celtics have had their offensive struggles in the series, shooting 44.2 percent from the field and 38.2 percent from beyond the arc.

Antetokounmpo left a Milwaukee restaurant after a delay in seating after Game 4 but can now turn his attention to the Celtics, who are without Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward and Daniel Theis. Their deficit reached as many as 19 in the third quarter before Boston rallied. Tatum's 18-footer with 52 seconds left gave the Celtics a brief 100-99 lead. When series are tied at two games apiece, the team that wins Game 5 wins the series more than 80 percent of the time. Jaylen Brown paced the Celtics with 34 points and eight rebounds in the loss.

"It helps a lot", said Horford.

The Greek Freak came up when the Bucks needed him most at every occasion. Just gotta do a great job of trying to contain him if he plays tonight. The Celtics have to take something from their rally that just fell short.

This one is going to be a pivotal swing in the series one way or the other. They need to establish their versatility and prevent the Bucks from dictating the terms of this series. Boston cruised to a double digit victory and Baynes saw 24 minutes of playing time, up from 14 in Game 1. I feel ready. I feel strong enough to get back out there.
