After losing the first two games of the series on the road, the Rockets head back to Golden State for Game 5 on Wednesday night with momentum on their side after their overtime win in Game 3 before Monday night's victory.

The whole night, in which the Bucks spent the entire second-half up by last nine, was a far cry from the beginning of the series.

As of now, the Bucks are second in points per game (116.9) and third in points allowed (101.6) during the playoffs this season. "We did not mess around with the game". "We weren't ourselves. The next four games, we came out with a different approach, a different mind-set, a killer mind-set, and we were able to win the four games".

Next up for The Greek Freak and company is the victor of the Toronto Raptors vs. Philadelphia 76ers, who are the No. 2 and 3 seeds in the East.

Each game of the Warriors/Rockets series has had the same pattern. Milwaukee is looking to advance to the conference finals for the first time since 2001 and to reach the NBA Finals for the first time since 1974.

"The first game, we weren't focused enough", Antetokounmpo said.

"He's obviously down because he's injured and doesn't really know the extent of it", Stephen Curry said. That's all we care about.

For that reason, in addition to many others, Grant Hill didn't hold back when he recently criticized Irving for his lack of leadership, suggesting that he ultimately failed to live up to the Celtics standard of excellence. We're going to take a look at the Eastern Conference Finals schedule for the Bucks while also offering a prediction on the next round, regardless of who they face. Jaylen Brown has averaged 14.1 points and totalled 5.3 rebounds while shooting 51.8 per cent over the last 10 games for Boston.

"Everybody was ready to play", Hill said.

Irving scored 15 points for Boston, which shot 31.2% from the field.

"I'm sorry to say it, but our offense is dictating our defense", Marcus Morris said.

"Not what we expected", Boston centre Al Horford said.

"We just couldn't find a way to do it. It's just slowing the (expletive) game down".

The talk following the disappointing result in Game 4 was all about Kyrie Irving. He stole an Irving pass and slammed it home to make it 65-52 with 6:45 left in the third quarter.

Embiid is one of the few players in the National Basketball Association that has the strength and length to defend Antetokounmpo effectively.

If it's going to happen again, Irving assured he's not going to be gun-shy about taking shots.

During the regular season, Irving averaged 23.8 points and 6.9 assists per game. Kyrie Irving can be petulant, and his impending free agency only added drama.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens, who has provided minimal updates on Smart's recovery the past few weeks, said the decision of whether Smart would be available Monday would be determined by Smart and the training staff, and he would prepare accordingly. "We didn't get stops when we needed to".

Boston led by as many as 11 points before Connaughton made a long 3 at the first-quarter buzzer to make it 30-22.

Orlando (plus 11) lost at Toronto 115-96 after falling behind 3-1. Brogdon has been out since mid-March with a plantar fascia tear in his right foot.

The Celtics' loss eliminated the chance for a "Boston Slam", the possibility of an unprecedented sweep of all four major pro championships in a year.
