The Greek Freak Shines as Bucks Force Game Seven with Celtics (video)

Giannis Antetokounmpo put up 31 points and 14 rebounds for the Milwaukee Bucks and forced game seven in their first round play-off clash against the Boston Celtics after a 97-86 win at BMO Harris Bradley Center.

The Milwaukee Bucks will now head to Boston for a decider on Saturday after being 2-0 down in the series.

The Bucks trailed 24-22 after the first quarter but edged ahead 38-37 in the second thanks to an Eric Bledsoe lay-up and would not trail again, opening up a 14-point lead in the third.

Boston got back to level terms at 61-61 but the Bucks closed out an ultimately comfortable win and another game will be needed to see who faces the Philadelphia 76ers in round two.
