Rapid Recap: Bucks 120, Celtics 107

This felt good.

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Boston Celtics David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Thank goodness we finally got a delightful win over the Celtics, because tonight was quite satisfying. From the oustet, Milwaukee didn’t care for Boston’s competence and was able to snag a victory in Beantown, 120-107. Seriously, what a satisfying victory tonight. Let’s revel in this for a bit.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was the destroyer we all wanted, with 30 points on only 12 shots for the night. No matter the deal, he turned in a spectacular performance tonight.

Tony Snell was the stand out from the bench, notching 15 points on a perfect shooting night. Khris Middleton added 21 in the winning effort.

Jaylen Brown was the prime contributor for Boston, putting in 21 points for them as Jayson Tatum was his dancing partner with 20 points.

Stat that Stood Out

Despite 20 turnovers to only 5 for the Celtics, the Bucks managed to make a profitable night on the offensive end. Their ability to pull out a decent performance on that end helped them leapfrog the injury-addled Celtics.
