Celtics allow Bucks to snap 11-game losing streak

This wasn’t exactly the corner the Celtics [1] thought they might be turning.

After a decisive home win over Cleveland Friday night, the Celts suffered one of their worst losses of the season Saturday night, dropping a 92-85 decision to the lowly Bucks. The subpar performance was made even more difficult to digest for Brad Stevens [2]‘ team considering Milwaukee had lost 11 straight.

Two of the Bucks’ three wins this season have now come against the Celtics.

The C’s had jumped out to an eight-point lead after the first quarter, but were outscored 28-14 in the second quarter. Also not not helping matters was a fourth stanza that didn’t see the Celtics convert a field goal until almost halfway through the quarter.

Jeff Green [3] couldn’t quite repeat his 31-point performance of Friday night, finishing with 18 points. Jared Sullinger turned in another solid outing, scoring 21 while hauling in 14 rebounds.

Avery Bradley [4] (4-for-15 from the floor, 9 points) fouled out of his league-leading third game.

The Celts were also out-rebounded by the usually rebound-challenged Bucks, 49-39, with the visitors making just four of their 19 three-point attempts.
