The Miwaukee Bucks showed Friday night they are not going to roll over and quit in the NBA Playoff series with the Boston Celtics. There was some success inside against the smallish Bucks with Al Horford scoring 16 points on 7-for-13 shooting, Aron Baynes contributing eight points and eight rebounds, and Greg Monroe pulling down seven offensive rebounds on his way to 15 points and 12 rebounds.

Prunty praised Maker's "energy" and "activity", after the 21-year-old played only a minute during the first two games. That, too, was a spirited game, one that put the Bucks up 2-1 in the series and looked like a tipping point. until Toronto ran off three consecutive victories.

Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics would have felt so good after solidifying home-court advantage in the first two games of the series, but they came out flat in Game 3 and got embarrassed.

But the shot merely unrolled the red carpet for Middleton, who scored the next eight Milwaukee points on three jumpers, two of them from downtown and the latter for a 101-76 lead.

"I think we just got sped up with the crowd and (expletive) going on", Marcus Morris said. "We knew what to expect Sunday".

"They both came ready to play", Bucks All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo said, "and checked into the game and set an example for the team".

Eric Bledsoe and Jabari Parker each added 17 points for the energized Bucks, who held the Celtics without a field goal for almost an 11-minute stretch of the first half.

Milwaukee found its defense after a disheartening 14-point loss in Game 2, getting contributions from up and down the roster.

We'll be back for the next episode of the podcast ahead of Game 4, with the episode scheduled to be available very early on Sunday morning. His blocks and 3-pointers really lit up the Bradley Center. "For Jabari, those are the things we've talked about and those are the things we need".

"I can't even speak on it, man", Morris said, referring to the technical foul (h/t ESPN).

Khloe Kardashian's relationship with Tristan Thompson is reportedly "hanging by a thread"
Apparently her plan went on the fritz as soon as she caught wind of Tristan's cheating ways, days before she went into labour. Many of Khloe's fans had mixed responses to the reality star's choice of name.

Boston being banged up caught up with them in Game 3 and it's possible the breakneck pace they were playing in the first two games took a toll as well.

Morris, however, did not try to pin Friday night's loss on the referees, saying the Bucks won "fair and square".

"I can't answer", he said, with a laugh, when asked about the refs.

"If I give away money, I want to give it to charity", Horford said, per Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. "Maybe if I say it in Spanish, and then I won't get fined, right?"
