Celtics roll over Bucks – Warriors with lots of Dusel
The Boston Celtics have achieved a remarkable away win at the start of the Conference semi-finals. The referees were discussed in Oakland.
Daniel Theis also contributed a small part to the 112:90 Celtics in Milwaukee, the 27-year-old scored four points. Celtics superstar Kyrie Irving (26 points/11 assists) and Center Al Horford (20 points/11 rebounds) each scored a double, the latter in particular shining with an outstanding defense against MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo.
In the Bucks, the Greek was the most successful with 22 points, but this was far from enough against a hit team from Beantown (54 percent from the field, 41.9 three). The second match between the first and fourth of the Eastern Conference will again be played in Wisconsin on Tuesday (local time).
Milwaukee’s MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo did not get a good evening against Boston Celtics in the first match of the Conference semi-final. Celtics superstar Kyrie Irving and Center Al Horford each scored a double and kidnapped one game from Milwaukee.

Warriors tremble to victory – Much controversy over the referees
In their second Sunday match, the Golden State Warriors won their home game against the Houston Rockets 104:100. Kevin Durant scored 35 points (11/25 FG) for the Warriors, as much as James Harden (9/28!) on the other side.
However, the focus of the game was mainly on the referees, who made several mistakes and overlooked fouls against Harden in three-point throws. According to Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni, the refs had already admitted this in the half. “That’s already twelve free throws that we didn’t get.”
Harden was also not very enthusiastic: “I just want a fair chance. Whistle the game the way it should be done. I then live with the result.”
