Celtics dominate Bucks in Game 1 of Eastern Conference semifinals: Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel recapped the Bucks' loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of their second round series Sunday afternoon.
Kyrie Irving had 26 points and 11 assists, tying his playoff career high, and Horford added 20 points and 11 rebounds to pace Boston, which controlled the game for long stretches while playing stingy defense against Antetokounmpo.
In game two of the series, Irving scored a series high 37 points, securing a close single-digit 99-91 win April 17, according to the National Basketball Association website.
Antetokounmpo scored 22 points but shot just 7 for 21.

Cummins is being treated at a local hospital for what's believed to be non-life-threatening injuries, DeVine said. Authorities did not say how they were killed or whether or how the victims were related to each other.
Game 2 takes place in Milwaukee in the early hours of Wednesday morning (1am). The same goes for the way the Celtics shot from three-point range, where they went 13-31. This won't be easy given that Horford's sole objective in Game 2 will most likely be to keep him away from the basket and cancel out his three-point shots.
The Bucks will now rest up before they play game two on Tuesday.
Irving thinks the Celtics have been rounding into shape in the playoffs after an uneven regular season.
