Boston Celtics survive scare from Milwaukee Bucks 122-119

The Boston Celtics probably should have blown out the Milwaukee Bucks at TD Garden on this past Wednesday night. But a bit of playing down to their opponent mixed with some especially good play from the Bucks nearly handed Boston a loss, the Celtics escaping with a 122-119 win.

What was going on with Boston that they went so cold in the third quarter? Why did Jayson Tatum not score in the second half until late in the final frame? Is there anything here that we ought to be worried about? Or was this just a late-season sleepwalk from the best team in the NBA?

To talk over what they saw in the win over the Bucks, the hosts of the CLNS Media “How Bout Them Celtics!” podcast weighed in on the Wednesday night tilt on a recent episode. Check it out below!
