Playoff Delly returns for surging Milwaukee Bucks

Burke on Celtics Jayson Tatum Jaylen Brown key to next Boston title

"I've been riding the bike for two months, so I can pick him up full-court as long as they need me to", Dellavedova said post game.

Celtics: Finished with 18 turnovers. Smart had nine points, five rebounds, four assists and three blocks off the bench.

But he ended up lifting this team, its fans and may change the immediate course of the season. Over the last three decades, the only teams to shoot better through the first four games of a playoff series are the 1990 Celtics (56.5 percent in a first-round series vs. the Knicks) and Lakers (54.5 percent, first round vs. Rockets) and 2014 Spurs (54.23 percent, Finals vs. Heat). Maybe they could win the next series against their soon-to-be rivals in Philadelphia. Playoff Delly is an actual thing, and he's arrived just in the knick of time for this Milwaukee Bucks squad.

One of the biggest reasons that Dellavedova makes himself invaluable to a playoff team is his physical nature - a trait that is not uncommon with all the Aussies in the National Basketball Association - on a team that often lacks the ability to show desperation when it's required.

Stevens wasn't sure about a minutes restriction for Smart but noted that he was unlikely to play big minutes in his first game back. Within the first minute of checking in, Smart found himself diving on the floor after poking a ball loose, the first of many times he ended up on the ground in the game.

We'll be back for the next episode of the podcast to look ahead to Game 6, with the episode scheduled to be available early on Thursday morning.

"Other guys make those plays, too". They need his tenacity, his aggression and make no bones about it, they need his physicality.

For a team that really needed some type of boost, Smart was a godsend, and it was fitting that the Celtics really sealed the game late when Smart fell to the ground trying to avoid the Bucks trap before coming out of a scramble for the ball with a pass to Horford for a wide open layup.

Boston won, so there's not much reason to question Stevens' decision of benching Jayson Tatum down the stretch in Game 5.

Once Smart is able to establish something that Stevens can trust, I would expect him to start the defensive standout.

"The rule states that under 2 minutes we are not allowed to review a potential 24-second violation unless the ball goes in the basket", Mauer said, according to a pool report distributed by the league.

Bucks interim head coach Joe Prunty believes his team must find more ways to get their star man involved in the game, but also believes each possession they have must pay off.

"I think it was bulls--, point blank", Bledsoe said before a Bucks media relations staffer ended his postgame session with reporters. We fed off his energy. "I want it to continue to feel good".
