Milwaukee Bucks, Khris Middleton crush Boston Celtics 116-92 in Game 3

Milwaukee Bucks, Khris Middleton crush Boston Celtics 116-92 in Game 3

Maker pulled off four spectacular blocks in four minutes and Dellavedova delivered the aggressive defence his squad had lacked to electrify the Milwaukee crowd and give the Bucks a 27-12 first quarter lead.

The Milwaukee Bucks didn't play anywhere near their best in the first two games of the series and got burned but they will be full of confidence after beating the Celtics by 116-92 in Game 3.

Thon Maker got extended playing time because of a back-related absence by Bucks center Jon Henson, and further exacerbated the Celtics' offensive woes by shutting down the paint with five blocks. The Bucks are seeking their first playoff series win since 2000-01, but they've never won a series after trailing 0-2.

Boston managed just 35 points through the game's first two quarters.

In the other Eastern Conference first round playoff game, the Washington Wizards' guards Bradley Beal and John Wall scored 28 points each to beat the Toronto Raptors 122-103 reduce their series deficit to 2-1. He also scored seven straight points during an important stretch of the third quarter when Giannis went to the bench and the Celtics were threatening.

In Game 3, they threw this script out the window. They blocked 13 shots - five of which came from Maker - contested most shots and played with a much more physical mentality than the C's. Al Horford had 16 points to lead Boston.

The targeted sites were largely empty, and were all said to be facilities for chemical weapons storage or production. The government insists the incident in Douma on 7 April was fabricated.

"We have to do a better job responding on Sunday and we will", Terry Rozier told reporters after the game.

Milwaukee, after failing to show much defensive presence in the opening two games of the series on the road, regrouped at home and guaranteed that this series would be going back to Boston. But Khris Middleton stepped up and led the team in scoring with 23 points on 58.8 percent shooting from the field.

The Bucks have had hot shooting in the series and while it didn't pan out in wins in the first two games, it did in Game 3. I think the Bucks level the series right here.

We saw what happened when Baynes was too late on the closeout and fouled Maker from 3-point range.

Offensive struggles are nothing new for Boston which shot 45 percent from the field in the regular season which ranked 23rd in the National Basketball Association. Bledsoe finished with 17 points, four rebounds, and four assists, on 8-13 shooting with only one turnover. I'm expecting it. They knew what they wanted before the game started. They'll have to carry over their stellar play into Sunday afternoon's Game 4 at home as well. Milwaukee got huge contributions from their bench players including Parker and Maker.
