Bucks Come Back to Beat Celtics; Boston Now Facing Elimination

Celtics vs. Bucks live stream: Watch pivotal Game 5 in Boston originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

It was the Bucks to mount the fourth-quarter comeback in Game 5, and the Celtics are now a loss away from the offseason.

Boston lost 110-107 after being outscored 33-21 in the fourth.

The Celtics led from the second quarter until the last minute of the game, when a three from Jrue Holiday tied it with just 42.4 seconds to play.

In what's become a theme of this series, the final seconds were frantic. Jayson Tatum went to the line and put the Celtics back up by two, then Giannis Antetokounmpo hit one free throw and missed the second — but Bobby Portis took the offensive rebound and scored, putting the Bucks up 108-107.

With 8.1 seconds on the clock, Holiday blocked a shot from Marcus Smart and took it back. The C's fouled Pat Connaughton, who hit both free throws to make it 110-107. And on a last-second drive, Holiday stole the ball from Smart to end the game.

We've got a best-of-three series on our hands, folks.

The Celtics and Bucks are tied at 2-2 in their Eastern Conference semifinals matchup after Boston mounted a fourth-quarter comeback to win Game 4 in Milwaukee. Al Horford played hero for the Celtics with a playoff career-high 30 points, while Jayson Tatum hit several clutch shots down the stretch to help seal the victory.

Boston has the momentum entering Wednesday's Game 5 at TD Garden, but the Bucks are battle-tested. They took Game 1 of this series in Boston and have a superstar in Giannis Antetokounmpo who's capable of winning games almost singlehandedly -- as was the case in Game 3 when he dropped 42 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists.

The Celtics could benefit from having their starting center back after Robert Williams missed Game 4 due to soreness in his surgically-repaired left knee. Williams is listed as questionable for Game 5.
