Bucks Lose Season Finale, Get Ready For Playoffs

(Boston, MA)  —  The Milwaukee Bucks have completed their best regular season in seven years after losing their finale at Boston, 112-94. The Bucks rested four of their top players to get ready for a first round playoff series that begins Saturday at Toronto — but the remaining Bucks kept the Celtics close until the fourth quarter when Boston pulled away with a 25-2 run. Gerald Green led the Celtics with 18 points, and former Marquette standout Jae Crowder scored 16 to help Boston take the top seed in the Eastern Conference — which the Celts would have had anyway after Cleveland lost its season finale with LeBron James on the bench. Spencer Hawes and Michael Beasley each scored 15 for Milwaukee, which ended its regular season at 42-40 with their most wins since 2010. One of the Bucks who rested Wednesday, Giannis Antetokounmpo, became the first in N-B-A history to finish in the league’s Top 20 for season points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocked shots.
