It's the continuation of a first-round Eastern Conference playoff matchup as the series carries on in Brew City.

As expected, Milwaukee showed up, defeating the Boston Celtics soundly, 119-92, to take get their first win of the series and trail 2-1.

Australian duo Thon Maker and Matthew Dellavedova have inspired the Milwaukee Bucks to a 116-92 National Basketball Association playoff demolition of the Boston Celtics. Brogdon, who missed two months late in the season with a quad injury, scored five points but helped limit the Celtics' backcourt of Rozier and Jaylen Brown (11 points).

The decision comes after the Queen publicly backed her son as the next Commonwealth leader for the first time. The decision was made official by the leaders of the British organization in London , England, on Friday.

It was obvious just minutes into the first quarter the Bucks were trying to be more physical and control the pace of the game. "Give them credit. They had it going, and we really didn't have an answer for them tonight". The Celtics went into the contest unchanged.

They haven't been much better in the playoffs, connecting on just 45.1 percent of their shots which ranks ninth among the 16 teams in the playoffs.

The Celtics had their worst game of the series by far in Game 3.

Syrian flags flew in Douma on Monday, security forces stood on street corners and Russian military police patrolled the streets. Syria and its main allies Iran and Russian Federation blamed Israel for that attack.

But the Celtics looked out of place during the first quarter, making just two of their 18 shot attempts and scoring only 12 points.

The Milwaukee Bucks desperately needed a victory against the Boston Celtics to keep their playoff hopes alive and that's exactly what they delivered in a blowout victory.

Maker finished with 14 points, five rebounds, five blocks, and was 3-4 from 3-point range. Terry Rozier, who didn't turn the ball over once in 78 minutes over the first two games, committed five in the first half alone. Milwaukee will have an uphill battle, as even with Friday's win, Boston is 35-0 all-time when leading a 7 game series 2-0. Despite, Antetokounmpo picking up his fifth foul early on and heading to the bench, the Bucks continued to add to the lead. The fiery Bucks set the tone and maintained their palpably high-level of intensity throughout the game. If the Bucks are going to win this series, he can't be getting soundly outplayed by Rozier. "They punched us in the mouth early". Milwaukee shot 57.7 percent and hit 16 3-pointers while three other players scored in double figures. Defense was a strong suit of the team, as the Bucks blocked 13 Celtics shots. Antetokounmpo's numbers were down by his standards, but he still recorded 19 points, six assists and five rebounds.

Khris Middleton led Milwaukee with 23 points on 10-of-17 shooting, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. John Henson was ruled out with back soreness. The Bucks were in desperate need of a win as they lost both games in Boston. They'll have to carry over their stellar play into Sunday afternoon's Game 4 at home as well.
