Bucks lose Game 5 to Celtics, 92-87

posted by iHeartMedia Sports Staff -

A controversial play in the waning moments punctuated a disappointing loss for the Milwaukee Bucks on the road against the Boston Celtics in the NBA Playoffs, a Game 5 92-87 loss.

Boston's Al Horford hit a shot after the shot clock had expired, but because the officials did not blow the whistle on the play, they did not review whether or not the shot clock had actually expired. The shot counted, and the Celtics would go on to win.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was an assist short of a triple-double. Khris Middleton scored 23 points and Jabari Parker added 17 in the losing effort for the Bucks.

Boston now leads the series three games to two as Game 6 will be Thursday night in Milwaukee.
