Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks played an incredible game five where the defending champions won. The Cream City was led by another Giannis Antetokounmpo performance as he dropped 40 points and 11 rebounds, making 16 of 27 shots. But in the end, it was Jrue Holiday’s lockdown defence that gave Milwaukee the victory.
Around a lot of high-intense action, there was a light and funny moment, courtesy of former Boston Celtics player Tacko Fall. The Senegalese born centre who towers at a height of 7 ft 7" was cheering his old team as he was seated courtside.
But thanks to his massive stature, Fall had completed blocked the view of a spectator sitting right behind him. After being unable to see the game, one staff member from the stadium presented her with some cushions for giving her an elevated view. Fall also took notice and interacted with the fans then.

“We outplayed them for 3 1/2 quarters,” Udoka
Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka, during the post-game interview, talked about the team’s performance. He expressed how they played great for the first three and the half quarters but lost their way in the end.
He said, “Of course, we're gonna be down. Guys are going to be (upset) about the outcome. We outplayed them for 3 1/2 quarters. We talked about showing our resolve, and we made it tougher on ourselves now. It'll make it sweeter when we bounce back. But we gave up a golden opportunity tonight.”
2021-22 DPOY Marcus Smart also commended their opponents as he said, “If we box out we win that game. They're the defending champs. They made some championship plays. And now we've got to bounce back.”
