BOSTON, MASS (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Milwaukee Bucks split their home-and-home series with Boston, after losing 108-to-100 last night at T-D Bank Garden.  Boston shot 70-percent in the fourth quarter, and hit 49-percent for the night.  

The Bucks tried playing catch-up the entire game.  The Celtics went up 22-to-9 before Milwaukee chipped away and trailed by five after the first quarter.  In the second, Boston went up by 15 before the Bucks closed the half on an 11-3 run to get within seven.  In the fourth quarter, the Celtics jumped up by 12 with 6:28 left.  Milwaukee had an 11-to-4 run to get within three.  Boston then pulled away with an 8-to-2 spurt.  But Milwaukee refused to give up, and got within three with 70 seconds to go.

 Jared Sullinger finally broke Milwaukee's back with a jumper as the shot clock expired in the final minute.  O-J Mayo led the Bucks with 19 points.  Brandon Knight scored 15.  Jordan Crawford had a game-high 25 points to lead Boston, which snapped a four-game losing streak.  

The Bucks fell to 3-and-14, with two of those wins coming against the Celtics.  Milwaukee will host Detroit tonight.
