Celtics vs. Bucks score: Jayson Tatum explodes for 46 points to lead Boston to crucial Game 6 victory


Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jayson Tatum put on performances for the ages on Friday night in their 108-95 victory as the two All-Stars each eclipsed the 40-point plateau as the Boston Celtics forced a do-or-die Game 7 matchup against Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday afternoon at TD Garden.  

Tatum was fantastic for the Celtics on a night where they needed him to be as he saved his best performance of the series for an elimination game on the road in what can easily be described as a hostile environment. Tatum edged out Giannis for a game-high 46 points to go along with nine rebounds and four assists. While his effort came in a loss, Antetokounmpo was dominant finishing the game with 44 points to go along with an astonishing 20 rebounds and six assists. 

Game 7 is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET on Sunday with ABC handling the national broadcast.
