Celtics 100, Bucks 91: Video, Stats, Recaps, Reation

New, comments

The Bucks' six game winning streak came to an end unspectacularly against the Boston Celtics, putting a damper on the Milwaukee debut of Monta Ellis (6/18 FG, 13 points) and Ekpe Udoh (2 points, career high 10 rebounds). Though the Bucks scored well in the first half and held on to a 2 point lead at halftime, the offense would not be able to sustain itself. Drew Gooden did not live up to his crowning as the Easter Conference player of the week, going 2-12 from the field with 6 points and only 3 rebounds. Brandon Jennings chipped in 19 points, including an attempt to bring the Bucks back towards the end that fell short. Paul Pierce led the way for Boston with 25 points, and former Wisconsin Badger Greg Stiemsma added 5 blocked Milwaukee shots.
