It's the continuation of a first-round Eastern Conference playoff matchup as the series carries on in Brew City.

Now Game 4 is Sunday in Milwaukee and the Celtics will need to get off to a much better start if they want to avoid going home with a 2-2 series tie.

In Game 1, they fought to an overtime finish with the Boston Celtics capturing the 113-107 victory.

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

From there, we moved on to discussing a phenomenal effort from Thon Maker, which ensured that Game 3 swung Milwaukee's way, and may even have greater implications in the overall series. And they were struggling to get open baskets to fall. The Celtics would draw no closer than 14 over the final three quarters. He certainly was in Game 3. As a team, the Celtics shot just 40 percent from the field and eight of 24 from the three-point line but they were always fighting an uphill battle after falling behind by 20 points less than two minutes into the second quarter. Despite, Antetokounmpo picking up his fifth foul early on and heading to the bench, the Bucks continued to add to the lead. "I've never played on the road in the playoffs, but I can only imagine their crowd is going to be behind them like our crowd was behind us".

Damian Lillard Frustrated By the Pelicans' Defense
Nikola Mirotic had another brilliant game with 30 points on 12-of-15 shooting from the field with eight rebounds and three steals. Davis and the Pelicans had to weather the storm during the 4th quarter which saw the Blazers outscore the Pelicans by 10 points.

Nifty Gains; Sensex Set For Longest Winning Run In 10 Years
The Sensex is trading at 34,434.73 points up by 39.67 points or 0.12 per cent from its Tuesday's close at 34,395.06 points. In other Asian markets, Hong Kong's Hang Seng rose 1.34 percent, while Japan's Nikkei gained 0.62 percent.

By the time halftime rolled around, most Green Teamers were probably asking if it was okay to forget about this game already. I think the Bucks level the series right here. His playing time went up from 9.9 to 16.7 minutes but his production backslid from 14.5 points and 7.3 rebounds pro-rated to 36 minutes to 10.4 and 6.5. The Bucks shot a blistering 57 percent from the field in Game 3 and knocked down 16 of 33 three point attempts.

When the third quarter rolled around, the Celtics had already committed 13 turnovers, compared to the Bucks' six.

Khris Middleton scored 23 and Giannis Antetokoounmpo had 19 to lead the Bucks. Pesky guard Matthew Dellavedova, a veteran of a championship run with the Cleveland Cavaliers, helped hold young Celtics point guard Terry Rozier to nine points on 2-of-7 shooting. Middleton kept cashing in 3-pointers, Eric Bledsoe curled around a pick-and-roll for a mid-range two, and four minutes later, Milwaukee's lead was 25 again. John Henson was ruled out with back soreness. I'm expecting it. [The referees] knew what they wanted before the game started.

And that more than anything else, should be a major concern for the Celtics heading into Game 4 on Sunday.

Perhaps the presence of new minority owner Aaron Rodgers brought the Bucks some luck, but whatever the case, they played with the necessary desperation while trying to dig out of a hole.
