The Boston Celtics repeated some of their mistakes from Game 1 of their series with the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series with the Bucks on Saturday afternoon, falling 103-101 despite fighting their way back from being down 14 points to Milwaukee in the game’s third quarter.

A general lack of ball movement, costly defensive lapses, and a terrible game from star forward Jayson Tatum (just 10 points, 3 assists, and 4 blocks on 4-of-19 shooting overall and 0-of-6 from 3) doomed the Celtics, who now trail the east semis series 2-1 as a result of the road loss. As a team, Boston was held to just 36.8% shooting from the field by Milwaukee and 27.3% from beyond the arc.

If you missed the game, or just want to see the high points without slogging through the entire disappointing loss check out the clip embedded below put together by the folks at NBC Sports Boston.
