Terry Rozier's 26 Points And Nine Assists Vault Celtics Into Round Two

It was the second Game 7 at the TD Garden this week, with the Boston Bruins beating the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night to advance in the National Hockey League playoffs. Getting past the Bucks and the wondrously talented Giannis Antetokounmpo taught this team many lessons that will only come in handy when Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid come to town.

Milwaukee made the two seed Celtics work as hard as they could.

The Celtics played in their NBA-record 31st Game 7, improving to 23-8.

With Giannis in early foul trouble, the Bucks struggled to get into their flow for most of the game, but the suffocating defense from Boston made life extra hard.

"It's what we've been doing as a group", Horford said.

Bledsoe's turnaround hook shot capped a 13-2 run to bring Milwaukee within 32-30 with 8:47 left in the second, but the Celtics were soon back up by double digits and went in to the locker room up by eight.

Horford had 14 points and seven rebounds at halftime while Bledsoe paced the Milwaukee attack with 12 points. Antetokounmpo, whose blend of size and athleticism has earned him the nickname the "Greek Freak", finished with 22 points and nine rebounds.

Penguins erase 2-goal deficit, beat Capitals 3-2
It should be interesting to see how the Capitals match up against the Crosby line, knowing there's no Malkin to worry about. Sullivan ruled Malkin out for Game 1 a day in advance but otherwise has referred to the star center's status as day-to-day.

Tatum had nine points in the first, when the Celtics scored 15 consecutive points - including a tip-in by Antetokounmpo into the Boston hoop - and 20 of the last 22 to end the quarter with a 30-17 lead.

The Celtics kept their foot on the gas down the closing stretch of the third with Tatum knocking down a huge three with 1:04 left in the third, completing an 11-2 Celtics run, as they would take an 81-67 lead into the final quarter of Game 7.

Rubio missed a few games late in the season with soreness in the same hamstring, but had not left a game with the problem in the postseason until Friday. The Bucks never got within single digits in the fourth.

In head coach Brad Stevens' second Game 7 as the Celtics' head coach, the C's would finish off the Bucks, 112-96, in what turned out to be one helluva opening round series. "I decided that's not going to happen".

He said afterward that trainers believe he has a Grade 1 sprain. He followed up his phenomenal regular season with an up-and-down series against the Bucks, but has to be feeling pretty good about himself after a 20-point night in Game 7.

In the fourth quarter of Game 7, the Celtics aired a video that featured Drew Bledsoe.

"You've got two guys that want to win, two chippy guys, two short point guards", Rozier said. The betting trends favor the 76ers who are 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games overall and 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Boston, so I'm sticking with the well-rested 76ers to stay hot with a win here. Russell Westbrook had 46 points for the Thunder and Steven Adams added 19 points and 16 rebounds. He was spotted riding an exercise bicycle at the start of the second half and was later deemed available to return but did not.
