Holiday, Portis lead rally as Bucks get huge playoff win over Celtics

BOSTON – The Milwaukee Bucks will head home with a chance to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals after a stirring 110-107 comeback victory over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night at TD Garden.

After trailing by 14 points early in the fourth quarter, Bobby Portis and Jrue Holiday did the unthinkable in the final moments of the game to give the Bucks a 3-2 series lead over the Celtics.

First, Portis assisted on a Holiday three-pointer to tie the game at 105 with 41 seconds left. Then, after Jayson Tatum gave the Celtics a 107-105 lead with a pair of free throws with 31 seconds to go, Portis came to the rescue of Giannis Antetokounmpo by putting back a missed free throw to make it 108-107 Milwaukee with 11.4 seconds left.
