He has to be better in Game 5 and he has shown he can be towards the end of the regular season and through the first five games of the playoffs.

The Bucks held the Celtics to an offensive rating of 86 (well below a point per possession) while shooting 31.2 percent for the game, although that was as much about Boston's desire as it was Milwaukee. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 39 points to lead Milwaukee to the win and Kyrie Irving scored 23 points in the loss for Boston.

It could be Irving's final game with the Celtics, with the point guard becoming a free agent and expected to entertain offers from the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers and the LA Lakers - where he would re-unite with former Cleveland Cavaliers' teammate LeBron James.

"Truth be told, it's no time to be disappointed", said Irving.

"I think [dealing with expectations] was the challenge for our group all year, and we really tried our best", Horford said.

"You take your lessons, you take your ass-whipping that they handed us, and you move on". The Bucks used their length to contest shots in the paint - the Bucks shot 6-of-19 in the paint for the first half - and still get into passing lanes.

If Rozier does want out, then he should be praying that Kyrie Irving returns to the Celtics. He scored just 5 points in Game 2 and 2 points in Game 4 and a reason by the Boston Celtics bench has been outplayed by the Milwaukee Bucks bench in those games.

On the other end of the court, the Bucks had a balanced attack.

The Bucks used a balanced attack to close out the Celtics in Game 5, placing seven players in double figures.

"Giannis" speech was, "A lot of us probably came from nothing and we have the opportunity to write our own story right now.' That's what everybody did", George Hill said.

The Boston Celtics have no room left for error.
