Bucks take back home-court advantage, beat Celtics 123-116

The Bucks went to Boston for game three needing a win to take back home-court advantage, and got that accomplished right away with a 123-116 win.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was his normal MVP self, flashing to the rim trip after trip. He finished with 32 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists.

On a night where Eric Bledsoe struggled (he finished with just nine points), it was the Bucks bench who picked up the slack.

Pat Connaughton and George Hill combined for 35, as the Bucks scored 40 in the third quarter to pull away and take a 2-1 series lead.

According to the NBA, teams who win game three when a series is tied 1-1, go on to win 73.3 percent of the time.

Game 4 is Monday night in Boston.
