The Boston Celtics (49-33, fourth in the Eastern Conference during the regular season) return to take on the Milwaukee Bucks (60-22, first in the Eastern Conference during the regular season) on Wednesday night at Fiserv Forum.
"At the end of the day, we realize we've never been there before", Antetokounmpo said. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 39 points to lead Milwaukee to the win and Kyrie Irving scored 23 points in the loss for Boston.
Boston shot a season-low 31 per cent from the field and 18 per cent behind the three-point line in the decider, compared to the Bucks' 45 and 32 per cent. Several players - including Irving, Al Horford, Marcus Morris and Aron Baynes - could become unrestricted free agents, while Terry Rozier will hit the restricted free-agent market.
Milwaukee didn't have all that impressive shooting numbers either, going 44 of 100 from the field and 8 of 37 from the arc, but the Bucks did have 56 rebounds and committed just seven turnovers in Game 4.
Rozier continued by alluding to the fact that he might not come back to Boston next season as he is clearly upset with how the year went.
Baynes was scoreless but had six rebounds in 10 minutes on the court.Читайте также: United Nations praises NZ premier's 'admirable' response to Christchurch attacks
"You take your lessons, you take your ass-whipping that they handed us, and you move on".
"I mean, truth be told, it's no time to be disappointed", Irving said.
I felt as though we owed Boston to be better. They were beaten by the better team and it looked like Boston had accepted their fate.
Milwaukee, who had not won a play-off series against the Celtics since 1983, dominated games by nullifying the threat of Kyrie Irving.

"I understand we didn't meet the outside expectations", coach Brad Stevens said.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
