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.
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.
At the same time the U.S. also blacklisted Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard Corps, designating it as a foreign terrorist group. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has made an unscheduled, fleeting visit to Iraq, amid growing tensions with Iran.
President Donald Trump said on Sunday he would raise tariffs on $ 200 billion worth of Chinese goods from 10-25 percent by Friday. Oil prices stabilised on Wednesday as markets remained relatively tight amid US sanctions on crude exporters Iran and Venezuela .
As with many previous missile tests, Pyongyang nearly immediately released imagery allowing for a closer look at this new missile. The North's second launch in five days was seen as a brushback pitch toward Washington over deadlocked nuclear negotiations.
USA officials say payments for maintenance and equipment for the ship were made unwittingly in American dollars through US banks. The U.S. has prosecuted people and businesses for violating sanctions but has never before seized a North Korean ship.
The woman was cited for possession and bag limit violations for all three species, which are native to Florida but are regulated. The reptiles were seized by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and then released, the outlet reported .
As well as the original ride-hailing business, Uber is developing driverless cars and has a food delivery operation, Uber Eats. Only about a fifth of IPOs have ended their first day of trading in the red in the last two years, according to Dealogic data.
The lander would have liquid hydrogen-liquid oxygen propulsion, precision guidance, vertical landing and landing gear systems. Robert Walker, a private space consultant who is working with Blue Origin, said it plans for a 2023 launch without people.
Kevin Durant goes down in 3rd quarter with right calf strain
It appears the Warriors have avoided disaster for now, as Durant's injury could have been much worse based on the way he landed. Should the Warriors advance, that same timetable would see him return right around Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.
Markets Tumble Over Fears of a U.S.-China Trade War
I assume that Trump has examined both the political and economic implications of increasing tariffs on Chinese goods. Chinese Vice Premier Liu He is expected to join a delegation in the United States this week.
