Despite a surprising Boston Celtics win in Game 1 of the series, the Milwaukee Bucks have now won three consecutive games in the series with their 113-101 win on Tuesday night.

The Bucks now hold a 3-1 advantage in the series, and could move onto the Eastern Conference Finals with a win in Game 5.

On Tuesday night in Boston, the Celtics once again had no answer for MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Bucks forward scored 39 points, leading his team to a crucial victory and giving control of the series to Milwaukee.

Antetokounmpo had a brilliantly efficient performance, taking only 22 shots from the field and scoring 39 points. The Greek superstar also collected 16 rebounds in a monster double-double performance.

Kyrie Irving led Boston with 23 points and 10 assists, but had an off shooting night once again. The point guard made only 1 of 7 shots from beyond the arc and finished 7-22 from the field.

Milwaukee will have a chance to wrap up the series on Thursday night in front of what will be an energized crowd at the Fiserv Forum.

If they win, they would qualify for the conference finals for the first time since 2001.
