Khris Middleton Sends Playoff Game To Overtime With Insane 3-Pointer

Khris Middleton Sends Playoff Game To Overtime With Insane 3-Pointer

After his 3-pointer with a half-second left in regulation almost won the game, Rozier hit another one for a 104-103 lead with 3:43 left in overtime.

With All-Star Kyrie Irving done for the year, Smart could soak up minutes at the point with Terry Rozier, and theoretically knock someone like Shane Larkin out of the rotation. Middleton had 31 points, eight rebounds and six assists.

Game 2 of the series is Tuesday in Boston. Boston defended well in overtime and deservedly took a 1-0 lead in the series.

It was 108-106 when Horford snared a rebound and got it ahead to Rozier, who was fouled.

Additionally, why didn't the Celtics foul on the play?

Rozier added three free throws to provide the final margin.

While he's definitely out to start this playoff series, Sunday's shooting display was a clear indication that Smart's return is drawing near - potentially at some point in this series.

Newcastle beats Arsenal, virtually assures Premier League status
There were some nervy moments in the closing stages as Arsenal pressed for an equaliser, but Newcastle held on for a vital win. Calum Chambers could have restored Arsenal's lead before the interval, but the defender shot wide from Mustafi's knock down.

Milwaukee was held to just two field goals over the first seven minutes of the fourth quarter as the Celtics built an 86-76 advantage.

"I'm excited for all those guys, because this is a great opportunity for (them)", Stevens said before Sunday's Game 1.

Malcolm Brogdon's 3-pointer had lifted the Bucks level at 96-96 with 10.3 seconds remaining.

Rozier dribbled the clock down before crossing over Eric Bledsoe, stepping back and swishing an apparent game-winner with a half-second showing the clock.

Trailing 99-96 with.5 seconds left, Middleton caught the ball near half-court and launched a shot, knocking it down as time expired.

Bucks: Outscored the Celtics 58-44 in the paint.

The Bucks connected on 6 of their first 9 shots of the game, which included two early assists by Antetokounmpo. Although injuries have made life incredibly hard for the Celtics of late, they've continued to perform well, and closed out a very impressive season with a 55-win total. "We're going to take it slow".
