Giannis, Bucks Break Through Boston’s Defense in Game 1

BOSTON – Fourth quarter, game still in doubt and Giannis Antetokounmpo decided, hey, let’s do something nuts. Bottled up on the perimeter by Grant Williams, Antetokounmpo stepped toward the rim, flipped the ball off the backboard, caught it and threw down a dunk between two Celtics defenders.

It swelled Milwaukee’s lead to 16 with six minutes to play. And ended whatever fleeting hope Boston had of mounting a comeback in Sunday’s 101-89 defeat.
