The Milwaukee Bucks evened up the series against the Boston Celtics, thanks in part to a huge three-pointer down the stretch from the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon.

With 33 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter and the Bucks trailing by one at 100-99, Giannis Antetokounmpo found Eric Bledsoe who made one extra pass to Brogdon in the corner. He did this:

Al Horford tied things up at 102 with two free throws, but Antetokounmpo tipped in a ball with five seconds left to give the the Bucks a 104-102 lead and the win.

Brogdon, who got the start, finished with 10 points on 4-for-7 shooting (1-for-3 from three) with four rebounds and two assists in the game. He’s scored 41 points in this series against the Celtics and is shooting 68% from the field. On the season, Uncle Malc is shooting 49% from the field (39% from three) and averaging 13 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game.

The Celtics won the first two games of the series, both in Boston, but the Bucks have held serve in Milwaukee to even things up. Next up, the series returns to Boston on Tuesday. Tip-off will be announced at a later time.
