The worst series of Kyrie Irving's career ended with an embarrassing thud on Wednesday night as he scored just 15 points on 6-of-21 shooting with a team-low minus 25 plus/minus in a crushing 116-91 loss to the Bucks. Irving was far from the only player who struggled on the worst shooting night of the year for the Celtics with Al Horford (4-of-13), Jayson Tatum (3-of-10) and Gordon Hayward (3-of-9) and Jaylen Brown (3-of-9) all giving the C’s next to nothing on the offensive end in a must-win game. Giannis Antetokounmpo led six different Bucks scorers with 20 points in a balanced offensive effort as they cruised for the second half after building a double-digit lead in the tail end of the first half.

The Bucks win the best-of-seven series 4-1, advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals while the C's see their season comes to a close with four straight ugly losses.
