Antetokounmpo, Bucks returns with a 119-112 win over the Celtics

Giannis Antetokounmpo appeared on his way out of the game. Moments later, he was instead on his way to the wrong line.

Remodeling what would have been the MVP's sixth mistake in the NBA with 1:28 left turned and took advantage of its second chance, helping the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Boston Celtics 119-112 Friday evening.

Antitoconembo scored 36 points, 15 rebounds and 7 assists in the first Paks reboot game. Milwaukee improved the best record in the NBA to 54-12 and moved during his victory in the first championship of the Eastern Conference for the second year in a row.

It seems that Pax had to do this without the Greek whims when Marcus Smart slid in front of Antiochonbo driving while recording in the lane. A charge was called but eventually canceled, as Smart said that the official interpretation of the rulers was too late.

Frankly, I think we all know all this was. Smart said the sixth mistake Giannis had made and did not want to get him out. Let's just call that spade and that's what it is.

Pax did not agree.

"I felt like he was moving in the last game but in both cases if it was a charge, if it wasn't a charge, I'm glad we got the win and I'll learn from playing," Antetokounmpo said.

Antetokounmpo made the free throw to make it 110-107. Then Chris Middleton toppled Index 3 to get a six-point advantage.

Middleton added 18 points to the Bucks, who played without Eric Bladesoy and Pat Connaught as they adapted them after a positive test for the Corona virus. Marvin Williams sat with a tense left thigh.

Smart scored 23 points for the Celtics and Gillen Brown got 22 points, but striker Jason Tatum got a nightmare restart. He had five points on Archery 2 vs. 18 - although he only made one basket.

Kempa Walker scored 16 points but played just 19 minutes, as the Celtics looked to keep all stars healthy after suffering from knee inflammation.

Milwaukee lost his last three games before suspending the season in March but returned to look like the team that beat opponents throughout the season. Pax broke to lead 17-2 and was supposed to have a close. Boston's only basket came when Antetokounmpo and Wesley Matthews passed the lost Walker Index 3. Tatum was given credit in the basket as the closest Celtics player.

"I thought we had a great mindset to go out in the first five minutes," said Brook Lopez, Pax Center.

Celtics: Gordon Hayward scored 17 points and Daniel Tess scored 13 points and 12 rebounds. Boston fell to 3-8, the playoffs count, against the last two bucks seasons. Milwaukee eliminated the Celtics match in five games in the East semi-finals last year.

Pax: Lopez had six dead ends. ... Coach Mike Bodenholzer said that he believed Williams' injury was not serious and he hoped the player would be available soon. Williams is believed to have been injured during the second fight and felt pain the next morning.

The match included all the winners of the monthly prize in the Eastern Conference this season. Antetokounmpo won in October / November, December and January before Tatum got his first career in February.
