The Bucks expect the plaza outside Fiserv Forum to be even busier for the next playoff games.

Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon made his playoff debut in Game 5 against the Boston Celtics tonight. "I think that you take your lessons, you take your ass-whooping that they handed us, and you move on".

"Truth be told, it's no time to be disappointed", said Irving. And as they look back on what has been such a confusing and disappointing season, they will try to find answers that they couldn't to solve their woes over the past seven months.

Antetokounmpo had 20 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, and the Bucks routed the Celtics 116-91 on Wednesday night to advance to the Eastern Conference final.

"I feel like everyone in the locker room really gave their best energies, their best effort".

DURING THE PLAYOFFS: Celtics: Averaging 103.5 points, 47.8 rebounds, 21.8 assists, 5.5 steals and 4.1 blocks per game while shooting 44.0 percent from the field.

The Bucks are going to need that kind of balance in the next round, but they looked like a team that has grown a lot in the previous year - their time is now.

The Celtics' loss eliminated the chance for a "Boston Slam", the possibility of an unprecedented sweep of all four major pro championships in a year.

I felt as though we owed Boston to be better.
