One of the highlights of Boston's victory was third-year guard Jaylen Brown throwing down a powerful dunk early in the fourth quarter despite Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo coming over to try to deny him.
In game two of the series, Irving scored a series high 37 points, securing a close single-digit 99-91 win April 17, according to the National Basketball Association website.
Game 2 between the Kyrie Irving, Jayson Tatum, and the rest of the Boston Celtics against the Milwaukee Bucks is scheduled for Tuesday, April 30, at 8:00pm ET back at the Fiserv Forum and the game can be seen on TNT.
Greek flags are always visible in the stands just as in other cities where the Bucks play and Greek-American fans turn out not just for their hometown team but also to watch Antetokounmpo play.
Jaylen Brown chipped in with 19 points and Gordon Hayward had 13 off the bench for the Celtics.

The teams then traded baskets with the Celtics grabbing a 52-50 lead at the half. That said, who's to say the Celtics won't continue to play at that same level, if not better as the best-of-seven set unfolds? The Bucks will be looking to even the series, although the Celtics had one of the best defenses all regular season. Asked by Michelle Beadle if the series is "over", Pierce said he thinks it is.

Expect a big-time bounce-back performance from Milwaukee in Game 2. A moment of silence was held before tipoff. This means that the Bucks will have to rely on players, such as Lopez, Middleton, and of course Giannis to pick up the slack and make that break in Game 2 the team will need to restore its moral.
Baynes turned his ankle against the Philadelphia 76ers as well and missed the next game against Charlotte. The 2017 Rookie of the Year has been out since March 15.
