Celtics send the title holder on vacation!

Having left victoriously in Milwaukee in Game Six when they came back to the wall, the Celtics finished the job at home in Game 7 without shivering to send off the defending champion. If Jayson Tatum still launched a big match, with Jaylen Brown also being a producer on his side, Grant Williams would still be the man for this match, with 27 points, his career record!

Like the Celtics in Game 6, the Bucks tried to take the best from the start to try and calm the TD Garden in search of the slightest spark. Giannis Antetokounmo responded from the start by scoring the first minutes of the match with five assists and a basket of 3 points (6-13).

To counteract the rising temperature of Brown Tatum in tandem, Milwaukee relied on its good defense and transitional game to turn into +10 (14-24) while Marcus Smart scared everyone away with a big fall after coming into contact with the “Greek Stranger”.

Al Qaeda and the rest of the C members soon got their word back. Payton Pritchard restarted the machine with a 3-point shot, and the duo of Brown Tatum again did what was necessary to drop Boston to -6 at the end of the first act (20-26), and then to equalize before seeing Horford turn the crowd into a huge immersion (32-30).

The fight continued, and the two teams dealt blow for blow until the end of the first half, but Marcus Smart gave his team a five-point advantage after clicking the ball and a mischievous shot in front of Giannis Antetokounmpo who was rewarded with three shots in the last second. (48-43).

Like Giannis Antetoknounmpo at the start of the match, Jayson Tatum in turn demonstrated his qualities of “playmaker” after returning from the locker room, with two gold serves for three-pointers Grant Williams and Jaylen Brown, 3 points from him and a 2+1 pass for Jaylen Brown.

The sequence allowed the locals to get a comfortable lead for the first time in the match (61-49). Despite Jason Tatum’s personal fourth-step blunder, which was synonymous with an early return to the bench, Boston held up thanks to the evening’s X-factor, Grant Williams, author of Immersion and 3-Point Baskets widening the gap (76-60). ).

At +15 to 12 minutes into the release (79-64), the Celtics didn’t miss a match-kill chance, this time relying on the Pritchard-Tatum-Williams trio to quickly put an end to the suspense (87-68). Payton Pritchard hit the nail in the head with two three-pointers, and TD Garden could enjoy their win for a six-minute long, marked by a 3-pointer final stroke from the Smart Fits Nesmith trio.

Winners 101-89, will witness the final conference against Miami!

What to remember

– Match of his life in Game 7. This will henceforth be the story associated with Grant Williams’ name. Boston’s fourth center unlocked the ball from the first 30 seconds, giving him confidence in the future. The Milwaukee defense left him open, then happily switched his open positions to take his total to 7/18 from distance to finish with a career best 27 points.

– “Greek Freak” on the kneecap. The best player in the last finals was not able to reverse the trend in the second half. Aiming at the Celtics’ defense, he ran and started the third quarter 1/6 with the shot and the ball loose before firing two dunks late in the period. He tried to hold on to the Boston defense but his failed attempts showed he had run out of gas.

The black hole from afar. The Bucks will have a headache ending their season with a 4/33 disaster from afar. A statistic that shows the completely failed second half of Mike Budenholzer’s forces. While it was clearly otherwise, Boston skated on the Grant Williams influence throughout the evening.

Absence of Khris Middleton. We can’t hide Chief Lieutenant Giannis Antikonmou’s pack in this setback for the Defending Hero. The winger’s absence will affect the series and in this Game 7. Because in addition to his production, it brings balance to Giannis Antikonembo’s unbridled game, being precious on the half field. Mike Budenholzer’s forces have missed this rotation throughout the series.

tops/swings

^ Grant Williams. Completely ignoring the powerful winger, both the Bucks and Brook Lopez were clumsy over the last four games (2/14 to 3 throws in total) who turned down more and more open shots, often finding themselves in setbacks in attack. So his awakening changed everything for Boston.

^ Jason Tatum. Because he carried his team back on his shoulders by participating in resisting a good start for the Bucks and then by being essential in the crucial sequence for Boston made it possible to banish Milwaukee as soon as they returned from the locker room.

⛔ Shooters bucks. 0/3 for Wes Matthews, 0/4 for Grayson Allen, 0/5 for Pat Connaughton and 0/6 for Jrue Holiday. Milwaukee “snipers” have a shipwreck from afar, sealing the Celtics’ trap on Giannis Antikonmo who finds himself helpless, and ends up exhausted.
