Antetokounmpo still had a brilliant stat line, finishing only one assist shy of a triple-double, but the Bucks lost 92-87 and now go back to Milwaukee trailing the first-round matchup 3-2.
Despite the praise which he has received throughout this season, Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo was mostly a non-threat throughout this game, as he only finished with 16 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, two steals, two blocks, while shooting a disappointing 5-of-10 from the field. Down by 15 at one point in the fourth quarter, they had the deficit down to two points in the final minute. What I'm concerned about [is] how much they're pushing.
Al Horford led the way with a double-double of 22 points and 14 rebounds.
Boston had possession of the ball leading 84-79 with about 90 seconds to play.

Boston crushed Milwaukee on the boards in Game 5, winning the rebounding battle 50-37.
The Celtics, however, countered back as they rattled off an 11-4 run from that point on to lead 72-61 after three. What was a bit surprising was how long he was able to do that for Boston.
For the first time in this series, the Celtics had a great defenisve game, and it is certainly not a coincidence that it happened the game Smart returned. He was fourth on the Bucks with just 10 shot attempts in 41 minutes-his lowest shot total in a game he played 20-plus minutes since a January 8 loss to the Indiana Pacers. While he was playing, Smart did Smart things. In the last 10 games, Antetokounmpo has averaged 23.3 points per game and 10 rebounds.
For a team that really needed some type of boost, Smart was a godsend, and it was fitting that the Celtics really sealed the game late when Smart fell to the ground trying to avoid the Bucks trap before coming out of a scramble for the ball with a pass to Horford for a wide open layup.
