Posted : 21 March 2024

In a thrilling contest, Jayson Tatum led the Boston Celtics to a 122-119 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, scoring 31 points. The Celtics initially surged to a commanding 21-point lead late in the third quarter, only for the Bucks to mount a fierce comeback, narrowing the deficit to just five shortly after halftime. Despite Milwaukee's late surge, Boston managed to maintain their lead, albeit with a nerve-wracking final period.


Reflecting on the game, Tatum acknowledged the team's shortcomings in the fourth quarter, describing it as "ugly." Despite the challenges faced, he emphasized the importance of securing the win, highlighting the unpredictable nature of NBA games and the need to capitalize on opportunities. With this victory, the Celtics extend their winning streak to seven games, solidifying their position atop the Eastern Conference with a record of 55-14, 11 wins ahead of the Bucks in second place.


Milwaukee faced a tough challenge without star player Giannis Antetokounmpo, yet Damian Lillard stepped up, scoring 32 points, while Bobby Portis contributed 24 in his absence. Meanwhile, in other NBA action, the Miami Heat narrowly edged past the Cleveland Cavaliers with a 107-104 victory, while the Sacramento Kings dominated the Toronto Raptors with a comfortable 123-89 win.
