After the first three matches where both the teams have looked evenly matched coming into Game-4, the fourth game seemed no different as the match ended in favour of the Celtics who made one of the greatest comebacks of this 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 first three quarters went in favour of the Bucks having being ahead 80-73 at the end of third quarter, the Celtics left it late at the night and dominated the Bucks in the last quarter eventually winning the game 108-116. 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 the best of their opposition for almost the entire match.
The match was pretty much in for the Bucks after the first 3 quarters but the dominance of Celtics’ players in the fourth quarter was too much to take for the Bucks as they eventually failed. The Celtics came back bravely in the last quarter and Al Horford and Jason Tatum put everything into the match having combining for total 60 points and saved the season for their side.
Milwaukee Bucks Match Report
The game might have been won by the Celtics but the performance that the Bucks boys pulled out was nothing short of appreciation. Mike Budenholzer’s men will be disappointed and dejected after such a cruel defeat last night having the match in their hands throughout the entire game just to give it all away in the final quarter. Bucks’ star Antetokounmpo yet again did what he does best and that is score freely as he picked up 34 points but even his brilliant performance was not enough to ensure his team a victory. Brook Lopez had a great game in the first three quarters but looked absolutely clueless in the final quarter when Al Horford and Jason Tatum took the game away from them.
Boston Celtics Match Report
The match was nothing but a roller-coaster ride for the Celtics’ fans as they witnessed their team go through all the phases of game from losing to winning to losing and winning the match at last from absolutely nowhere. This might have been one of the greatest comebacks in history of Celtics and all thanks goes to Alfred Horford who did it single-handedly in the last couple of minutes. Having being 80-73 behind at the end of the third quarter, no one believed that the game could end on the side of the Celtics but it was the brilliance of Jason Tatum, Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown who combined to steal the match away from the Bucks.
Giannis Antetokounmpo has been in a breathtaking form all season long and yesterday was no different as he notched up 34 points, with 18 rebounds and 5 assists but all went in vain as his teammates couldn’t provide him with proper support at the final quarter of the match.
The Celtics fans will still be chanting the name of Alfred Horford who might have single handedly saved the season for the Celtics. He was simply unstoppable in the final quarter of the game picking up a total of 30 points with 8 rebounds and 3 assists ensuring his team a vital win.
Jason Tatum had one of the worst performances of his career in the last game and made his intentions clear of bouncing back right from the very first minute of the match with a brilliant performance picking up 30 points with 13 rebounds and 5 assists last night.
