NBA Game Summary - Milwaukee at Boston



(Tuesday, December 3rd)

Final Score: Boston 108, Milwaukee 100

Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Jordan Crawford had a game-high 25 points, Jeff Green added 18 points and the Boston Celtics snapped a four-game losing streak against the Milwaukee Bucks with a 108-100 win at TD Garden.

Brandon Bass netted 16, while Avery Bradley and Jared Sullinger tallied 15 and 12 points, respectively, as every Boston starter scored in double figures.

O.J. Mayo paced Milwaukee with 19 points and Brandon Knight scored 15 points on 5-of-15 shooting in the loss.

Milwaukee snapped an 11-game losing streak with a 92-85 win against Boston on Saturday, but couldn't secure the second leg of the home-and-home.

"The bottom line is they did make plays down the stretch and some timely shots," said Milwaukee head coach Larry Drew.

Courtney Lee and Crawford scored the Celtics' first 17 points of the fourth quarter to extend the Boston lead to 86-74 following Crawford's jumper with 6:28 remaining to play.

Milwaukee used an 11-4 spurt later in the quarter to cut the deficit to 90-87 after a pair of free throws from John Henson.

From that point, the Celtics answered with an 8-2 spurt in a 1:11 span to regain a comfortable 98-89 advantage.

Milwaukee, however, didn't go away as Knight hit a trey that got the Bucks back within three at 99-96 with 1:10 left.

Sullinger answered with a step-back jumper as the shot clock expired that proved to break the back of Milwaukee and seal the win.

When speaking of his final jumper, Sullinger said, "Honestly, it was a double team. I was just trying to escape the double team and I seen a little daylight so stepped back and just shot the shot."

Early on, Green buried a triple with just over nine minutes left in the first that ignited a 14-3 run to give the Celtics a 22-9 lead. Milwaukee, however, chipped away and trailed 28-23 after one.

The Boston lead swelled to as many as 15 in the second but the Bucks closed the half on an 11-3 spurt to pull within seven, 48-41, at the break.

Green and Bass accounted for 19 of Boston's 21 points in the third, helping the Celtics to a 69-63 lead heading to the final frame.
