Bucks can't hold off Celtics in overtime
New Richmond Wisconsin 127 South Knowles Avenue 54017

The Milwaukee Bucks lost to Boston in overtime Tuesday night 107-104 at the Bradley Center.

The Celtics jumped out to a 17-2 lead with their Big Three on the floor, but Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce called it a night before the Bucks rallied from 14 down in the fourth quarter.

Michael Redd sent the game into overtime by hitting a three-pointer with 10 and a half seconds left.

Former Buck Eddie House then missed a three-pointer at the buzzer.

But in the overtime, House put the Celtics in front for good with a three-pointer with 1:29 to go.

Garnett scored 21 for Boston, whose starters all played for about 20 minutes and then got some rest for the playoffs.

Redd had 25 for the lottery-bound Bucks, who've lost three straight and seven of their last nine.

They'll play at Toronto tonight (Wednesday).
