The Miami Heat will face the Boston Celtics when the Eastern Conference Finals start on Tuesday, May, 17, which stands to be an incredibly competitive series, as these are the No. 1 and No. 2 seeded teams. However, if Heat forward P.J. Tucker could’ve chosen which opponent the Heat would face in the final divisional round, it would’ve been a series against his former team, and last year’s champions, the Milwaukee Bucks. On Monday, May 16, the morning after the Celtics absolutely smashed the Bucks 109-81 in Game 7, Tucker was asked how he felt about the Heat’s upcoming opponent.

    BOSTON (CBS) — After the Celtics thoroughly dismantled the Bucks in Game 7 on Sunday, finishing off an epic Eastern Conference semifinal showdown between the two teams, the two stars of the series embraced at half court. When their battle was done, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jayson Tatum shared a moment of mutual respect on the floor. The two had just gone toe-to-toe for seven games, with Tatum’s team sending the defending champions home for the summer. It was a grueling seven-game war where both players having to work for every point they scored. When it was all said and done, Giannis, a two-time MVP and last year’s Finals MVP, had something to say to Tatum.

    Getty Jaylen Brown, Boston Celtics It’s been a bumpy road for Ime Udoka since taking the Boston Celtics head coaching job. But right now, he’s proving himself to be one of the best young coaches in the NBA, leading his team into the Eastern Conference finals to face off against the Miami Heat. Looking back to the start of the season, it never seemed like Boston would figure things out, at least not to this extent. Yet, Udoka stood strong and doubled-down on implementing his principal-based offensive and defensive systems, and now, the Celtics are reaping the benefits. After the Celtics’ game seven victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, Jaylen Brown spoke glowingly of the first-year head coach, shedding some light on what makes Udoka tick behind the scenes.

    Getty Grant Williams, Boston Celtics Buckle your seatbelts! The Boston Celtics are heading to the Eastern Conference finals, where they will face off against the Miami Heat for an opportunity to challenge for an NBA championship. Let’s be fair, we witnessed a slobber-knocker between Boston and the Milwaukee Bucks in the second round of the playoffs, and the series could have gone either way. Yet, the Celtics found a way to defeat the reigning champions in a do-or-die game seven, courtesy of a monster performance from third-year big man Grant Williams.

    Getty Grant Williams of the Boston Celtics. The Boston Celtics took down the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 7 of their second-round series and will now advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. With the team’s season on the line, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Marcus Smart played well, but it was Grant Williams who stole the show. Williams dropped a career-high 27 points, leading the game in scoring. He shot 10-of-22 from the field and 7-of-18 from behind the three-point line. His seven threes tied Stephen Curry’s record for most threes made in a Game 7, and his 18 attempts are the second-most ever attempted in a playoff game. Despite his historic night, Williams began the game shooting 1-for-3 from deep. However, Ime Udoka never lost confidence in his forward. After the game, Udoka revealed the message he sent to Williams after his slow start and before his three-point explosion. “I told him let him fly. They’re disrespecting you more tonight than earlier in the series,” Udoka revealed. “And that was a plan for him and other guys. Really...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Even after the Celtics ripped off an incredible stretch of basketball in the second half of the regular season, they still had their doubters. Sure, Boston was one of the best teams in the league after the new year, but lots of folks questioned if they had what it took to keep that going in the playoffs. So far this postseason, they’ve risen to every challenge thrown their way. A first-round sweep of the Nets was impressive, but their seven-game series win over the Bucks outdid that performance. Beating Giannis Antetokounmpo and the defending champs is exactly what the Boston core of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart needed to do to prove that they’re not only ready, but that they can win on the big stage. Even with Brown and Smart set to play in their fourth Eastern Conference Finals, and Tatum his third, there are still doubters.

    PHOENIX (AP) — Luka Doncic scored 35 points, Spencer Dinwiddie added 30 and the Dallas Mavericks stunned the top-seeded Phoenix Suns with a 123-90 Game 7 blowout Sunday night, advancing to the Western Conference finals for the first time since 2011. Dallas broke through on the road after the home team won the first six games, dominating in a hostile environment from start to finish. It was an embarrassing no-show for the playoff-tested Suns — who advanced to the NBA Finals last season. The fourth-seeded Mavericks will face third-seeded Golden State, with Game 1 on Wednesday night in San Francisco. Doncic gave the Mavs an early lead, making his first three shots, including two 3-pointers. That helped Dallas push to a 27-17 advantage in the first quarter and a whopping 57-27 cushion at the halftime break, with Donic matching the Suns’ total. The Suns missed shots they usually make, made bad passes they usually don’t make and looked nothing like the team that won an NBA-best 64 games during the regular season. By halftime, many Suns fans were booing, Phoenix...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Anything can happen in a Game 7. Anything. Teams leave it all out on the floor, and usually, they need someone other than the usual suspects to step up with a big effort. Grant Williams answered that call for the Celtics in Sunday’s 109-81 trouncing of the Milwaukee Bucks. But the undersized forward didn’t just have a big game. He had a colossal effort in the must-win clash, scoring a game-best — and new career-high — 27 points while knocking down 10 of his 22 shots. READ MORE: Celtics-Heat Eastern Conference Finals ScheduleYou read that right; Grant Williams took 22 shots in a Game 7. More shots than both Jayson Tatum (14) and Jaylen Brown (16) for Boston. Only Giannis Antetokounmpo took more shots in the game, putting up 26 attempts, and that’s because he always takes more shots than anyone else on the floor. Williams took 18 of his shots from three-point land, tying Steph Curry — perhaps the greatest shooters to ever touch a basketball — for the most three-point attempts in a Game 7....
    BOSTON (AP) — In the fog of the Celtics’ Game 5 loss to Milwaukee that dropped his team into a 3-2 series hole, Boston coach Ime Udoka made a prediction. “It’ll make it sweeter when we bounce back,” he said. Two wins later, the Celtics turned their coach’s prophecy into reality. Grant Williams scored a career-high 27 points and hit seven 3-pointers, Jayson Tatum added 23 and Boston set a Game 7 record with 22 3-pointers to eliminate the NBA champion Bucks 109-81 on Sunday in the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Celtics will face top-seeded Miami beginning Tuesday in a rematch of the 2020 East finals. The Heat beat the Celtics in six games in that series at Walt Disney World. Tatum said his team embraced the “backs against the wall” moments it faced in having to win the final two games after their late collapse in their previous home game. “As much as it hurt to lose Game 5, I was looking forward to that challenge,” Tatum said. “I believe in myself, I believe in this team. I expected...
    The Heat finally know who stands between them and a trip to the NBA Finals. With a 109-81 decimation of the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Sunday, the Boston Celtics advanced to the Eastern Conference finals. Boston will face Miami in Game 1 on Tuesday at FTX Arena in Miami at 8:30 p.m. Whether the Celtics or the Bucks won, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said it wouldn’t make much difference to the top seed in the East. “At this point, whoever it is, both sides are familiar with each other just from regular season and how much we’ve played against each team in the playoffs,” Spoelstra said. The Heat and Celtics are no strangers to each other. The Heat made it past the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals in 2020 before falling to the Lakers in the NBA Finals. Miami played Boston three times in the regular season, dropping two of three games. The Heat won the most recent matchup on March 30. Celtics star Jayson Tatum has averaged 17.7 points,...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The Celtics are moving on to the Eastern Conference Finals. Boston pummeled the Milwaukee Bucks in a deciding Game 7 at TD Garden on Sunday, 109-81, to finish off a classic second-round matchup between the two teams. Game 4 of the series belonged to Al Horford, while Jayson Tatum had his career game for Boston in Game 6. Tatum was still a star in Game 7, but Sunday belonged to Grant Williams.

    BOSTON (CBS) — The Celtics are getting Robert Williams back for Sunday’s deciding Game 7 against the Milwaukee Bucks at TD Garden. Or at least a little bit of Robert Williams back. The center is available to play in the winner-takes-all tilt in Boston, but he won’t start against the Bucks, Celtics head coach Ime Udoka announced in his pre-game press conference. Williams, who missed the last three games of the series with left knee soreness, will be used “as needed” on Sunday. READ MORE: Rhode Island State Police K-9 Ruby featured in Netflix movie euthanized“He hasn’t done a whole lot of basketball activity the last week. He’s been managing the pain. Structurally he’s OK,” Udoka said ahead of Game 7. “He won’t start; we’ll go with our normal rotation the last three games and use him as needed.” That will leave Grant Williams in the starting five for the fourth straight game. He has averaged 8.2 points and 4.3 rebounds over the first six contests, and played some solid defense against Giannis Antetokounmpo, but has struggled over the last...

    BOSTON (CBS) — It’s only fitting that Celtics-Bucks is coming down to a Game 7. There was some doubt their second-round series would get there after Boston blew Game 5 at home, but the Celtics bounced back with authority in Friday night’s Game 6 in Milwaukee. Now this incredibly evenly matched series will come down to one final game at TD Garden for all the marbles — or at least a trip to the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat. Both teams are going to leave it all on the floor and both head coaches will do anything and everything they can to get a win. It’s a stressful experience for players and fans, but this is what sports are all about.

    Getty Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics. The last time the Boston Celtics played a game at TD Garden, they suffered a heart-wrenching defeat. Despite holding a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter, the Celtics fell to the Milwaukee Bucks thanks to a Bobby Portis put-back layup and a couple of Jrue Holiday defensive plays. However, after taking care of business in Game 6, the Celtics will have their chance at redemption at TD Garden. They’ll once again be playing with their season on the line, but this time, so will the Bucks. But fortunately, the Celtics will be at home this time around. After Boston’s Game 6 victory, superstar Jayson Tatum spoke to the media about what it means to be playing Game 7 in Boston. Tatum didn’t mince words with his response, stating that it’s the best feeling in the world. “It means everything. The best atmosphere in NBA,” Tatum said about TD Garden. “Game 7s are the biggest, the best games. So, looking forward to it, truly. Just winning this game, giving ourselves a chance...

    PHOENIX (AP) — The NBA’s long regular season can be tedious, but make no mistake, it matters. Just ask the Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns — two teams who have home-court advantage in Game 7 of their respective second-round NBA playoff series on Sunday thanks to superior regular-season records. The Celtics host the Milwaukee Bucks a few hours before the Suns host the Dallas Mavericks in what could be a drama-filled day. “It means everything,” Celtics forward Jayson Tatum said of getting Game 7 in Boston. “The best atmosphere in the NBA. Game 7s are the biggest and best games. Looking forward to it, truly. “It’s basketball – biggest moments, biggest stage. What it boils down to is now go out there and just have fun.” Suns All-Star guard Devin Booker echoed those sentiments. “We worked all season to have home-court advantage and get the last game in our house,” Booker said. “It’s exciting. It’s Game 7. I’ve never been in a Game 7, so this will be fun.” The Mavericks have a particularly difficult task in their game...
    Getty Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics With their season on the line, the Boston Celtics found a way to overcome the Milwaukee Bucks in their do-or-die game six matchups on May 13. Jayson Tatum rose to the occasion, leading the Celtics to victory on the back of his 46 points, nine rebounds, and four assists. The All-Star wing provided his team with an incredibly efficient performance, shooting 53.1% from the field and 46.7% from deep as he torched Milwaukee’s defensive coverages repeatedly. “He was unbelievable; he was knocking down shots, tough shots, getting to his spots. We’ve got to give him credit. He led his team to a win, as I said, made a lot of tough shots. I think that as a team, we were doing a good job staying in front of him, making him take contested threes and contested two’s, but he made it. You’ve got to respect that. He was unbelievable,” Giannis Antetokounmpo said of Tatum following the game.
