National Basketball Association play-offs: Milwaukee Bucks beat Boston Celtics to make Eastern final

After the game, the Celtics players and coaching staff had to answer for the disappointing end to the season.

Before important games, a Bucks front-office staffer often shoots a text message to a few of the Milwaukee Bucks' players.

After the Celtics lost in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Wednesday to the Milwaukee Bucks to end their season, some of Boston's players were asked about their future.

Milwaukee, meanwhile, has advanced to the conference finals and will take on either Toronto or Philadelphia. "And it was clear throughout the five-game series". Irving is clearly more humbled than he was following Game 4, but he does make sure to stress that it's about "moving on" after a loss like this. The Boston Celtics were supposed to be even better than they were previous year. George Hill finished with 16 points and Nikola Mirotic had 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Antetokounmpo, one of the front-runners for NBA MVP, closed out the period with consecutive baskets, including a finger-roll layup that gave the Bucks an 80-62 lead. Antetokounmpo also found time for eight rebounds and a game-high eight assists. Add to that just one assist and three turnovers, plus 1-for-7 from three-point range.

Celtics star Irving - who has been linked with the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets ahead of free agency - scored 15 points on six-of-21 shooting as the Bucks sealed a 4-1 series success.

Pavelski leads Sharks past Avalanche 3-2 in Game 7
The victor of the last game of the conference semi-finals advances to the West Conference Finals. San Jose is third in the league averaging 6.2 assists per game, led by Brent Burns with 0.8.

Numerous national pundits have determined that this series is over already, and that Boston won't win another game after being pummeled the past three games.

Bleacher Report revealed that the Nets now sit at +250 to persuade Irving in to sign in free agency.

Point guard Terry Rozier is a restricted free agent, meaning Boston will be able to match any offer sheet that he signs with another team.

Having been sidelined with a foot injury since the Bucks' March 15 road win over the Miami Heat, Malcolm Brogdon is expected to return to action for what Milwaukee will hope is the final act of their second round series.

We will answer that question as we offer some bold predictions for Wednesday night's Celtics-Bucks Game 5. The Bucks used their length to contest shots in the paint - the Bucks shot 6-of-19 in the paint for the first half - and still get into passing lanes.
