Inside the most frantic 11 seconds of Celtics-Bucks Game 1


BOSTON -- For the first 47 minutes, 49 seconds of Sunday's Game 1, the Eastern Conference first-round series between the injury-ravaged Boston Celtics and starless-beyond-the-Greek Freak Milwaukee Bucks was about as unsexy as most anticipated.
There were turnovers -- 35 combined -- and some painful scoring droughts (the teams will suggest it was "playoff defense"). The Bucks often forgot how to score when Giannis Antetokounmpo went to the bench and a Boston team playing without the services of Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward and Marcus Smart often found that their best offensive option was simply a wild, late-clock isolation by Marcus Morris.
