Tuesday night marked the second time in the season that the two top teams in the NBA’s Eastern Conference met on the court, when the Boston Celtics paid a visit to the Milwaukee Bucks at Firserv Forum, with the home team taking the win in overtime after a sensational comeback.
Jrue Holiday shined ahead of the All-Star Game
Jrue Holiday has been a topic of discussion lately after he was named to the 2023 NBA’s All-Star Game, his first in a decade.
This Tuesday against the Boston Celtics, he helped his team to an overtime win by posting 40 points, including a crucial three-point shot with less than 30 seconds on the clock left in overtime, which gave his team the lead, with them finally taking the win a couple of seconds later with a 131-125 score over the Celtics, who had most of their starting squad out due to injury.
“I don’t really, I guess, care for how I’m playing as long as we’re winning. For me, as long as we get the win, I’m OK. The only stat I look at is turnovers. That’s kind of how I determine if I had a good or bad game. Tonight, what did I have, five turnovers? To me, that hurts my soul,” Holiday said after the game.
The Milwaukee Bucks could be Eastern Conference’s top seed at All-Star Game
