After the first six matches where both the teams have looked evenly matched coming into Game-6, the seventh and the penultimate game came in the hands of the Celtics who made yet another fantabulous performance to set a tie against the Miami Heats in the semis. One the other hands the Bucks started with a first quarter lead and hoped to see their name on the silverware at the end of the season. The match was quiet tense for the fans of both parties but as a neutral fan, the game was nothing less than a roller-coaster ride. The Celtics came out on the top after the start of the second quarter and never looked back and gave the Bucks absolutely no chance to comeback. Despite the brilliance of Antetokounmpo, who displayed yet another brilliant performance but ended on the losing side. The Bucks players looked dejected at the end of the match as the defeat was too hard to swallow having had another great year but falling short of the silverware.
The match was pretty much one sided after the second quarter started as the Bucks were always the second best team on the night and the Celtics capitalized on their chances and executed the plan very well right from the very first minute of the match. The Celtics will be playing against the Miami Heat in the semis. Grant Williams was the man of the night picking up 27 points with 6 rebounds and Jason Tatum as usual getting himself on the scoresheet as well picked up 23 points with 6 rebounds and 8 assists. Marcus Smith and Jaylen Brown also combined for a total of 30 points altogether.
