In today's edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we round up the reactions to the Bucks dropping Game 1 in their second round series with the Boston Celtics in humiliating fashion and much more.

Al Horford, Marcus Morris and a mixture of other Celtics were able to slow down Giannis Antetokounmpo en route to 22 points.

Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks were defeated on their home court in Game 1 of the National Basketball Association playoffs on Sunday (April 28).

Kyrie Irving led the Celtics with 26 points and 11 assists, while Jaylen Brown chipped in with 19 points. The Bucks seemed entirely unprepared for this game plan and they were thoroughly trounced by the Celtics, who had yet to see a game they dominated so clearly this post-season.

The upcoming game will be a chance for the Bucks to rebound, but to do so, they will have to figure out a way to allow Giannis to play to his fullest potential.

With a one game to zero lead and the sudden benefit of home court advantage, the Celtics have a surprising shot to put the Bucks in a big hole if they pull off a victory in game two. The game is taking place at Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee, WI on Tuesday, April 30.

The Celtics knocked Milwaukee out of the playoffs in seven games previous year, winning the final game at home. Havlicek was the MVP of the 1974 NBA Finals when the Celtics defeated the Bucks in Game 7 at the MECCA in Milwaukee.
