Jayson Tatum scored 46 points and the Boston Celtics beat the Milwaukee Bucks 108-95 on Friday night to force a seventh game in their Eastern Conference semifinal. Giannis Antetokounmpo posted 44 points, 20 rebounds, and six assists for the Bucks. Game 7 on Sunday in Boston.

Following the game, the Celtics star guard Marcus Smart (21 points along with seven assists) shared his thoughts about his fellow teammate Jayson Tatum who made sure there wouldn’t be another Bucks fourth-quarter comeback: “That’s why he gets paid the big bucks … for moments like that.”
