In Game 4, Celtics registered an away win. The home advantage did not turn out to be fruitful for the Milwaukee based franchisee as the Bucks despite dominating the game from the very first quarter lost the game by 8 points. In the final quarter, Boston Celtics after trailing by 7 points came from behind and won the game. The duo Jason Tatum and Al Horford were the players of the game for the Celtics. Together they added 60 points to the Celtics’ total.
Tatum in his 42 minutes stint on the court had 13 rebounds and 5 assists while Al Horford had 8 rebounds and 3 assists in the game.

In the last game, Antetokounmpo’s 34 points didn’t help the defending champions to extend their lead in the last clash. They got a small lead in the last quarter but couldn’t avoid a defeat against the red-hot Celtics.
