If you missed Wednesday night’s Game 5 between the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics, you missed one of the best playoff games in recent history.
The game ended up being a close one and it all came down to the final moments.
Because of a few big plays, the Bucks ended up pulling out a 110-107 win.
That means they are ahead in the series 3-2 and just one win away from making the Eastern Conference Finals again this year.
It was a nail-biting, explosive, wild finale and two stars of the Bucks left it all on the floor.

This showed the deep-seeded, genuine brotherhood that ties them together and makes them strive to help one another and compete hard.
Any other player in the league should look fearfully at this image because it features two of the most impressive stars in the entire NBA.
Big Bucks Night
Antetokounmpo and Holiday ended up being the most important players on their team on Wednesday.
The Greek Freak came through with 40 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 assists and was as dominant as always.
As for Holiday, he was pivotal.
He put up 24 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists.
But it was the 1 steal and 2 blocks that really cemented Holiday as MVP of the game.
In the closing seconds of the game, Holiday was suffocating the Celtics and had a huge block followed just seconds later by a massively consequential steal.
Make no mistake, the Celtics gave it their all and played quite well for most of the game.
They still lost.
The series now returns to Milwaukee, where the Bucks may close it down and secure their spot in the ECF.
