Marcus Smart To Return To C's Lineup Tonight For Game 5

They're all big games in a playoff series, but Game 5 will be especially important for the Bucks, who have been unable to win in Boston.

For the Bucks, Khris Middleton led all scorers with 23 points.

The Celtics were able to increase their lead in the first in large part by stringing together good possession on both ends of the floor which put Boston up 23-15 at the end of the first quarter. It was unquestionably a defensive-minded switch, and Ojeleye delivered with 31 strong minutes (5 points on just three shots to go with 7 rebounds). None of the three referees, however, whistled the play dead, and the Celtics wound up getting an offensive rebound and a shot-clock reset, allowing them to run another 26 seconds off the game clock. Some late 3s from Milwaukee and Boston free throws shaped the final score, in what was an ugly but entertaining game throughout.

Terry Rozier had 16 points and five assists for Boston.

Per ESPN's Jeff Goodman, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said Smart is expected to return from his thumb injury on Tuesday.

It was the first time he set foot on to the court in a competitive game - beating up the team's assistants in 1-on-1 and 2-on-2 games doesn't count - since March 11.

Your move, Joe Prunty.

Ojeleye didn't know he was definitively starting until 25 minutes before the game.

Rozier and Eric Bledsoe got tangled up with 9:33 left in the third quarter.

The call: One of the major talking points of the next few days will surely be the shot clock violation that was not called on Al Horford with just over a minute left. Nothing was called, and Boston grabbed the rebound leading to an entirely new shot clock which they burned most of before missing a 3-pointer. He has been out the last two games for Milwaukee, so this will once again be an opportunity for Thon Maker to continue to shine off the bench for the Bucks. "I think my teammates did a great job finding me, but coming the next game, Game 6, I've got to be more aggressive and make more plays". "So just - we got to forget about that one". Antetokounmpo had just 10 field goal attempts.
