Khris Middleton Sends Playoff Game To Overtime With Insane 3-Pointer

The wait is nearly over, as the Milwaukee Bucks will be back to playing playoff basketball when they visit the Boston Celtics on Sunday. The victor of this series would play the victor of the Philadelphia 76ers and Miami Heat in the next round.

The two sides are pretty evenly matched on the court, despite the injuries of Hayward and Irving for the Celtics, with maybe Milwaukee having an edge, but the main difference between the two teams is the coaching. Key reserves Marcus Smart and Daniel Theis are out as well.

Get to a TV and turn on TNT to catch the end of this game. Prior to the season, they were a popular pick to host a playoff series, but instead will go on the road as the seventh seed to face Boston. The Celtics will have to rely on their young team and the coaching prowess of former Butler coach Brad Stevens if they look to advance. With Boston's injury list so long, it was a preferred first round opponent, but Milwaukee will have to play at a higher level than it did this year to beat anyone, let alone upset the Celtics.

In 54 games this season, Smart averaged 10.2 points, 4.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds in 29.9 minutes.

Halfway through the first quarter of game one of the Boston Celtics' first-round matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks, Tatum knifed through the lane for a lovely transition dunk.
