The NBA-leading Milwaukee Bucks return home Thursday after a winless road swing, hosting the Boston Celtics at Fiserv Forum. The defeat marked the Bucks’ third straight – they previously had not lost any back-to-back games all season – and the fourth in their past five. Their lead over the fourth-place Miami Heat remains at two games before Thursday’s matchup with Milwaukee, Boston’s third meeting with the Bucks this season. Boston claimed a 116-105 victory on Oct. 30, while Milwaukee exacted revenge in a 128-123 win on Jan. 16.
Antetokounmpo was instrumental in the win with 32 points, 17 rebounds and seven assists.
