The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Boston Celtics at Fiserv Forum on Wednesday night.

He has to be better in Game 5 and he has shown he can be towards the end of the regular season and through the first five games of the playoffs.

"You take your lessons, you take your ass-whipping that they handed us, and you move on".

"Just go out and play", Budenholzer said he told Brogdon regarding shaking the rust off since he last played March 15.

Since the loss in Game 1, Milwaukee has looked like the much stronger team in this series.

On April 28, 2018, the Boston Celtics eliminated the Milwaukee Bucks from the playoffs in a Game 7 where Al Horford and Terry Rozier each stepped up with 26 points in what was a relatively easy Celtics win at home.

That is just the start of the roster questions about a Celtics' team that all season lacked cohesion and trust, and in the playoffs that came back to embarrass them.

Don't forget to tune in to "Celtics Pregame Live" on NBC Sports Boston starting at 7 p.m., and make sure to return immediately after the game for "Celtics Postgame Live". He averaged career-highs in scoring (15.6 per game) and three-point shooting (42.6 percent from deep) and thrived as defenses dedicated their attention to slowing down Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The Bucks used a balanced attack to close out the Celtics in Game 5, placing seven players in double figures.

Milwaukee, who had not won a play-off series against the Celtics since 1983, dominated games by nullifying the threat of Kyrie Irving.

I felt as though we owed Boston to be better.

Brad Stevens: "I did a bad job".

"I'm going to be honest, I'm just trying to get back to Boston first, safely".

Boston players can watch those games from their hotel rooms in Cancun, while they ponder their future.
