NBA playoff scores for Sunday, April 15

Game 1: Celtics 113, Bucks 107 (F/OT)

It was a rough, grind-it-out affair between the Celtics and Bucks for at least the first three quarters, but the ending turned into absolute insanity. Terry Rozier hit a 3-pointer that should have sealed a victory for the Celtics.

Then Khris Middleton forced overtime with an absurd 3-pointer at the buzzer that barely got off his fingertips in time.

Overtime was just as wild. Both teams traded leads, Antetokounmpo fouled out and eventually the Celtics sealed a tough Game 1 victory. 

This is going to be an ugly and long series by the looks of it.

Game 1: Pacers 98, Cavaliers 80

The Pacers cruised to an 18-point road victory in Game 1, taking control of this series. It’s the first time a LeBron James-led team has dropped the opening game of the first round of the playoffs. Victor Oladipo led the way with 32 points. This is the team’s first playoff win since 2016. 

Lance Stephenson showed he was ready to play with this powerful slam:   

Cleveland had a small ball lineup in Game 1, featuring a healthy Rodney HoodJeff Green at the power forward spot, and Kevin Love at center. It’ll be interesting to see if coach Tyronn Lue makes any changes before Game 2 on Wednesday.
