Giannis Antetokounmpo on Game 6 vs. Celtics

For the first time in this series, the Celtics had a great defenisve game, and it is certainly not a coincidence that it happened the game Smart returned. Head coach Brad Stevens has done a marvelous job with his depleted roster this year, and his strategy and adjustments will be enough to get his team through to round 2.

Point guard Eric Bledsoe goes a step further, though.

Celtics: Finished with 18 turnovers.

Philadelphia, whose maligned rebuild has morphed into the one of the trendiest terms in sports, will play the victor of Boston-Milwaukee series.

But he ended up lifting this team, its fans and may change the immediate course of the season.

Boston has yet to prove that they can win a road playoff game, but that won't last long. Missed calls should shock no one, even if they are as blatant as Tuesday night.

With their defensive and spiritual leader back on the floor, the Celtics played not only their edgiest game of the series, but also their most effective with a 92-87 Game 5 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Bucks appeared to be thumping their chests in Milwaukee. "We're the best defensive team in the league".

When the 24-second violation wasn't reviewed, official Ken Mauer stated that they couldn't review the possibility of a violation because by rule, when there are two minutes or less left in the game, it's only possible to do so if the player makes the shot attempt. He was blocking the Greek Freak at the rim and making sure that every single loose ball went his way. Game 6 will be played at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee.

Sounds like Prunty has watched a lot of Celtics tape the last four years because he was spot on. There's an old coaching adage that tells players to stay ready, because they never know when their chance to make an impact has arrived. He makes plays for other people.

Smart makes up for any kind of problem they might have on defense, and that is why they were able to win game five.

Smart gives the Celtics another premier, experienced player during crunch time.

Not bad for a bench guy and someone who, as recently as last week, was a roster afterthought. I think he gets bodied quite a bit. He could do that because Stevens trusts Smart cannot only handle the ball, but make good decisions.

It just so happens that ref Kenny Mauer was asked about the play after the game, and according to the rule book, it's one of the few things in the National Basketball Association that is not reviewable.

We'll be back for the next episode of the podcast to look ahead to Game 6, with the episode scheduled to be available early on Thursday morning.

"I said this during the season, Marcus is the soul of our team", said Horford. We fed off his energy.
