The Milwaukee Bucks ultimately made it too close for comfort, but they hung on to edge past the Boston Celtics in what was their 37th victory of the season.
Despite a shaky landing, the Milwaukee Bucks exacted their revenge on the Boston Celtics Thursday night in a 128-123 victory at Fiserv Forum.
The start of the Bucks’ performance couldn’t have been further from how they ended up clinching the victory in the final moments of the night, which certainly displeased Bucks fans up until that point.
It sure may have been by the skin of their teeth, but the Bucks pulling out a significant victory and fending off the Celtics’ comeback push was still a worthwhile result in the end.
Boston, meanwhile, looked to have dug themselves in with their dreadful play to kick off the night. Yes, they were without a potential All-Star in Jaylen Brown, but their collective mettle showed through as the night went along, thanks to the leading performance of Kemba Walker.
In the end, though, they’ll have to dig themselves out of this skid they’re in as they’re now 4-5 since the turn of the year.
With that in mind, let’s examine each and every individual Bucks performance from Thursday night in their win over the Boston Celtics.
