Whether it was the early tip, the time off, or simply a case of the yips as a team, the Boston Celtics dropped Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series to the Milwaukee Bucks at home Sunday afternoon.

A fair amount of the credit should of course be directed to the Bucks’ ability to maintain poise and capitalize on turnovers where the Celtics could not, but it seems even with Milwaukee’s elite defense that it will be unlikely to see Boston shoot just 33% from the floor and 36% from deep again any time soon. The loss of course erases the hard-fought home court advantage the Celtics pushed to earn over Milwaukee at the end of the season, but Boston can make up for it on Tuesday at TD Garden with a win.

In the meantime, let’s take a look at how NBA Twitter responded to the Celtics dropping Game 1 to the Bucks at home.
