The Celtics-Bucks game went to overtime Sunday with a pair of unbelievable shots in the final two seconds.
Giannis Antetokounmpo showed out for the Bucks with 35 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists, with Middleton finishing with 31 points. Malcolm Brogdon is the third double-digit scorer and John Henson is grabbing six rebounds.
Boston shot 41.5% from the floor and hit 11 out of 26 attempts from downtown (42.3%), and made 24 out of 27 shots from the free-throw line (88.9%), while they committed 15 turnovers in opposite to Milwaukee's 20. The surging Sixers could have been their first round opponent if the Bucks had moved up to a six seed, and the Milwaukee squad avoided a repeat of last year's playoff run against the Toronto Raptors by not falling to the eighth seed.
The Celtics now lead the series 1-0. But timely 3-pointers from Rozier and Morris allowed the Celtics to hold on to their advantage.
Then it was Terry Rozier's turn.

Barca bounce back, beat Valencia 2-1
Barcelona are 11 points clear at the top of La Liga and hold a huge 15-point advantage over fourth-placed Real Madrid . Ter Stegen's rollercoaster afternoon continued as Dani Parejo's penalty slipped under his grasp frustratingly.
Boston won the game 111-107 in overtime. The fact they didn't doesn't bode well moving forward. Very limited single game tickets remain for the Bucks first two home playoff games.
The Boston Celtics' 2018 postseason got off to a good, albeit insane, start Sunday afternoon at TD Garden. The Bucks lack the scoring depth to beat good teams consistently, and you really can't ask for better play from Antetokounmpo and Middleton.
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.
The two teams will meet again Tuesday night for Game 2.
