The Celtics dominated in the first quarter and won in 29-17, but the Bucks responded in the second period, allowing just four points in the opening eight minutes, but Boston somehow scored 15 points in opposite to the Bucks' 30.

Stevens said he plans to have a lot of different people on him, but the main man will be Al Horford, as he said: "We have to throw a lot of different bodies at him".

Sure, keeping Antetokounmpo contained will give the Celtics a good chance of advancing to the second round of the playoffs, but the Bucks have other dangermen in Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton which Boston must consider.

Middleton took an inbounds pass roughly 35 feet from the basket and buried a three-pointer in the nick of time to send the game to overtime. The two teams split their four matchups this season.

Game 2 in the best-of-seven series is Tuesday night in Boston. Rozier grabbed the rebound of the second miss with Antetokounmpo came flying in to rip the ball away with one official calling a jump, but another overruling that it was a loose-ball foul and Antetokounmpo's sixth of the game.

After his 3-pointer with a half-second left in regulation almost won the game, Rozier hit another one for a 104-103 lead with 3:43 left in overtime.

Antetokounmpo made one of two free throws at the 14.8 mark, and then committed his sixth and final foul fighting for a loose ball with Rozier, who made one of two free throws with 13 ticks to go. But couldn't get it as Middleton knocked down a bomb at the buzzer to force overtime.

The Bucks led 47-44 at halftime.

Smart said he now has a smaller splint which helps keep the thumb from bending in a way that might result in it being re-injured.

While he's definitely out to start this playoff series, Sunday's shooting display was a clear indication that Smart's return is drawing near - potentially at some point in this series.
