The Boston Celtics equalized again with a 116-108 (47-48) win over the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA playoffs.
The team from the east of the USA prevailed thanks to a strong final quarter (43:28); in the series it is 2:2.
Al Horford was again the Celtics’ best pitcher with 30 points, while German basketball pro Daniel Thies failed to score with any of his five pitches. This Wednesday, the Celtics can take the lead for the first time in their home arena.
The Golden State Warriors earned match point. They won 101-98 (38-41) against the Memphis Grizzlies, who were without their star Ja Morant, to lead the best-of-seven series 3-1.
They barely scored in the first three quarters in the absence of coach Steve Kerr, who has tested positive for the coronavirus.
Led by Stephen Curry, who scored 18 of his 32 points in the final period, they turned a seven-point deficit into victory.
With another success, the Warriors can move into the conference finals on Wednesday in Memphis.
