Celtics survive overtime thriller: The Celtics seemingly had this game wrapped up in the closing seconds of regulation, but a Khris Middleton buzzer beater forced them to work an extra five minutes for the crucial win. Terry Rozier scored eight of Boston’s 14 points in the overtime period, while Jayson Tatum knocked down a crucial layup with over a minute remaining. Boston got enough stops defensively (Bucks shot 25 percent) and hit enough free throws down the stretch (7-of-8 in overtime) to help pull out a critical Game 1 win.
