Celtics lose 22-point lead, fall to Bucks in home opener
The Celtics lost their grip on a 22-point lead in their home opener at TD Garden Friday night, losing to the Bucks, 105-98. The C’s are now 0-2 on the young season.
Milwaukee had four players off the bench in double figures. Vitor Faverani had 18 rebounds for the C’s in a losing effort.
What they’ll be saying: In the Celtics’ first two games they’ve had shots at winning both late in the fourth quarter. But it’s already apparent that the young team doesn’t know how to close.
