Bucks steal victory from Celtics in game 5

Two key defensive plays in the last six seconds by Jrue Holiday propelled the Milwaukee Bucks to a 110-107 win over the Boston Celtics after overcoming a 14-point deficit in the fourth quarter at TD Garden.

A rebounded basket off a missed free throw by Bobby Portis gave the Bucks the lead for good at 108-107 with 11.6 seconds left. 

Holiday blocked a shot by Marcus Smart and then stole the ball from him in the final seconds to secure the win. 

The Bucks trailed the game 93-79 with 10:16 left in the fourth quarter and outscored Boston 31-14 the rest of the way to win the pivotal game 5 in the NBA Eastern Conference Semi-finals.   

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 40 points and 11 rebounds, while Holiday added 24 points with 8 rebounds and 8 assists.   Milwaukee also got key contributions off the bench from Pat Connaughton and Portis who scored 13 and 14 points respectively. 

The Bucks now have a 3-2 games edge with the opportunity to close out the series at home on Friday night.
