Kyrie & Company Knock Off Bucks [VIDEO]
What a night at Boston Garden! A franchise record 24 three-pointers. A visit from the World Champion Red Sox. And, at the end of the night, a victory over Milwaukee 117-113.
As the Celtics handed the Bucks their first loss of the season, the C's hit on 24 three-pointers. That's best in franchise history and just one off the all-time NBA record.
Kyrie Irving had six of them as he led the C's with 28 points.
In fact, the entire starting five hit in double-digit scoring. That includes Semi Ojeleye who was filling in for the injured Jaylen Brown.
Marcus Morris added 17 off the bench.
The Celtics needed all the points because the Greek Freak was hard to contain. Giannis Antetokounmpo pumped in 33 points.
During a first quarter timeout, Red Sox manager Alex Cora and several Sox players brought the World Series trophy to the Garden. The place went crazy.
