Andrew Bogut continues to be one of the NBA’s most dominant centers in the NBA in the second half of the season. Bogut poured in 25 points and pulled down 17 rebounds in the Milwaukee Bucks 86-84 win over the Boston Celtics at the Bradley Center on Tuesday night.
The Bucks went up 86-79 and then held on to beat the Celtics, watching a Paul Pierce game tying jump shot rim out as time expired. The Bucks, who were scoreless for the final 2:42 of the game, won their 4th straight and 10th in their last 11, continuing their run as one of the hottest teams in the NBA.
Carlos Delfino, playing with a bout of the flu, scored 19 points and John Salmons added 16 for the Bucks. Boston got 20 points from Rajon Rondo but the Celtics saw their 4-game win streak come to an end.
The Bucks have two games left on their home stand and will host Utah on Friday night.
