It’s normal for the second-round series between the Bucks and Celtics to go into Game 7.
Giannis Antetokounmpo made Game 6 history by posting 44 points, 20 rebounds and six assists, but that wasn’t enough for the Bucks to overcome a great performance from Celtics star Jayson Tatum.
Tatum led the Celtics to victory with 46 points, nine rebounds and four assists. Jaylen Brown (22 points) and Marcus Smart (21 points) provided much-needed support, helping Boston beat Milwaukee on their home turf to tie the series at 3-3.
The two teams will now meet in Game 7 in Boston. The winner will advance to the Eastern Conference Finals to face the Heat, who beat the 76ers in six games in the second round.
