Celtics 113, Bucks 107, OT: Boston outlasts Milwaukee for Game 1 win

Wizards coach Scott Brooks

Luckily the Celtics defense kicked in and Terry Rozier posted a dazzling basket with.5 seconds left. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 38.1 percent from beyond the arc and 79.2 percent from the free throw line.

Antetokounmpo, along with Khris Middleton, did most of the heavy lifting for the Bucks in Game 1.

Boston's odds to win the National Basketball Association championship can be found at BetDSI and they are pegging the Celtics at +8000, which means that Brad Stevens' men are not among the most serious contenders to lift the National Basketball Association title this year.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 35 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists before fouling out in overtime.

Antetokounmpo made one of two foul shots with 14.8 seconds left, but he fouled out of the game while going for the rebound on his miss.

At least 15 dead in Taliban attack on 'safe' district in Afghanistan
President Ashraf Ghani condemned the attack and said it was carried out by "Afghanistan's enemy", a reference to the Taliban. He said the Taliban forces set buildings on fire but left the area by daylight.

Each team had advantages and their fair share of weaknesses throughout the game-the Bucks had 20 turnovers which converted into 27 points for the Celtics while Milwaukee came out, guns blazing in the second quarter as they topped the Celtics in scoring on a 26-7 run.

With 25 seconds left, the Bucks would close to within one, 94-93, before Horford would extend the Celtics lead to three on the free throw line.

The Celtics overcame a rough shooting night as they hit just 41.5 percent from the field in the contest. "Hopefully next time I can knock down the free throw and not get into that situation". Terry Rozier contributed 23 points in his first career playoff start, Marcus Morris added 21 points and seven boards off the bench and Jaylen Brown put up 20 points.

Boston showed grit and determination as they picked up the win in the opener by being tenacious all the way through.

Boston leads the series 1-0.

US Fires 'One Time Shot' At Syria After Chlorine Attack
Witnesses saw blasts surrounding much of the Syrian capital and a huge fire could be seen from a distance to the east. US officials said there was no indication so far that Syrian air defenses struck attacking Western aircraft or ships.

"And like I said, we're on track for the next three weeks, possibly Game 7 of the first round, definitely second round". Middleton had 31 points, eight rebounds and six assists. And while they are without Kyrie Irving for the rest of the postseason, they have more than enough to get into the second round.

Middleton receives the in-bounds pass with 0.5 seconds left on the clock, as he gets off a quick release deep three and of course, guess what?

"Both teams are going to keep fighting", said Bucks coach Joe Prunty after the game. Matthew Dellavedova didn't see action after returning in the season finale after missing time with an ankle injury. They opened overtime on a torrid pace, combining for 11 points in two minutes.

Later in the day, after Horford had finished with his turn in the locker room media crush (he declined a request to make the trek down to the more formal interview area set up for the coaches and game's stars), Horford pondered a question.

Horford understands how this team needs to function as well as anyone, and Brad Stevens is able to use one of the most unique skill sets in the National Basketball Association to open everything up for these secondary players that still need some help.
