Jayson Tatum throws down dunk in game one of Celtics vs

Sometimes, sports have moments that are nearly impossible to believe.

The Milwaukee Bucks will find out if they dodged a bullet this afternoon when they open up the first round of the NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs against the Boston Celtics.

Rozier crossed up Eric Bledsoe and hit a three-pointer to put his team up by three, with 0.5 seconds remaining as it looked like the Celtics had done enough to snatch the win.


Middleton took an inbounds pass roughly 35 feet from the basket and buried a three-pointer in the nick of time to send the game to overtime. Stevens has been to the playoffs as a head coach before, while this will be Bucks' interim head coach Joe Prunty's first time in the deep end as the main man. With Boston's injury list so long, it was a preferred first round opponent, but Milwaukee will have to play at a higher level than it did this year to beat anyone, let alone upset the Celtics. Perhaps head coach Brad Stevens was anxious about Middleton getting into the act of shooting too quickly to execute a foul before making a three-shot endeavor.

Halfway through the first quarter of game one of the Boston Celtics' first-round matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks, Tatum knifed through the lane for a handsome transition dunk. Still, without Kyrie Irving, Boston is vulnerable to being knocked off.
