The Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks are only in Game 1 of their first round Eastern Conference playoff series. They’ve already given us an incredible final sequence.
With the game tied at 96 after the Bucks’ Malcolm Brogdon made a three-pointer, the Celtics had a chance to take the lead. Guard Terry Rozier did so with a flourish, crossing Eric Bledsoe into oblivion before burying a three-pointer with less than a second remaining.
Just watch this play. Where was Bledsoe?

However, the Bucks had one last possession, and Khris Middleton wasn’t going to let his team go out like that.
Middleton took an inbounds pass roughly 35 feet from the basket and buried a three-pointer in the nick of time to send the game to overtime.
Check it out. The ball just got off his fingertips.
KHRIS. MIDDLETON. CLUTCH.
