Bucks vs. Celtics, scores: Boston knocked out the defending champion in Game 7 and goes to the conference finals

After a streak of seven wins, the Boston Celtics will advance to the Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday afternoon, defeating defending champion Milwaukee Bucks 109-81 in Game 7.

The Celtics led the series 3-2 after five games but managed to avoid relegation in games 6 and 7. They are now facing the Miami Heat for the first time since the 2010 NBA Finals.

Grant Williams led the Celtics with 27 points and 6 rebounds (yes, you read that right). Jason Taitum contributed 23 points, 8 assists and 6 rebounds, and Jaylen Brown contributed 19 rebounds and 8 rebounds.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, like all series, with 25 points, 20 rebounds and nine assists for his best for Milwaukee. But in the end, his performance was not enough to bring the Bucks back to the Western Conference Finals. It’s hard to overstate the fact that the Bucks missed Chris Middleton’s chances in this series, especially in Game 7 as they struggled to score beyond Antetokounmp. Middleton averaged 20.1 points during the regular season.

There is no excuse for the playoffs, and the Celtics, who have proven themselves as the better team throughout the series, are now facing a tough test in the hit. But before we get to the conference finals, here’s a list of the top three winners in the Boston-Milwaukee game.

3-point difference

The 3-point difference between Boston and Milwaukee may be the biggest factor in Game 7. The Celtics scored 22 threes throughout the game and scored 40 percent in 55 attempts. However, the Bucks have succeeded in just four of their 33 long-distance attempts. This equates to 12% anemia. The two Celtics players, Jason Taitum (5/9) and Grant Williams (7/18), have more threes than the entire Bucks.

According to ESPN, the 22-ball game against Boston was the seventh game record in NBA history and the most in a playoff game in Celtics history. The Celtics have a very rich history, so those are excellent numbers. Overall, Boston led Milwaukee by 54 points on Sunday. That’s an incredibly unbeatable number on a Sunday afternoon for any team, including the Bucks.

Grant Williams Boom

Grant Williams was a major contributor to the Celtics in every series, thanks in large part to the solid defense he could play against Giannis, but Williams exploded in Game 7. Taking advantage of Milwaukee’s defense, Williams paid special attention to Jason Taitum and Jaylen. Brown dared to score 27 points in 39 minutes.

His 27 points were more than he had in the first four games of the series. According to ESPN, Williams became the third player to score seven threes in Game 7. Stephen Curry and Marcus Morris are two players who have had to deal with such a violent move. Williams leads the Celtics in points for the first time. You could say he chose the right time to continue his career.
