BOSTON - The Milwaukee Bucks dropped to 1-and-4 on the young season, after losing at Boston in overtime last night 105-102. The Bucks led by seven in the fourth quarter. But the Celtics rallied to lead by five before Milwaukee caught up in the final minute.
Carlos Delfino made a lay-up to force the overtime. And then Paul Pierce took over, scoring 12 of his 28 points for Boston in the extra period. He made six free throws in the final 14 seconds to seal the victory, and he made all 11 of his free shots for the night. And Pierce went past the 20,000th point mark for his career, joining Larry Bird and John Havlicek as the only Celtics to reach that milestone.
Boston out-shot the Bucks 47-to-42 percent. Former Buck Ray Allen scored 23 for the Celtics, and Rajon Rondo had 17 points and 15 assists. Andrew Bogut led Milwaukee with 21 points and 13 rebounds. Boston improved to 4-1, while the Bucks lost their second straight and are now 0-3 on the road. They’ll play at Indiana tomorrow night.
