Milwaukee’s Monta Ellis scored 32 points in the 92-96 loss to the Boston Celtics Saturday night. This comes after the 27 year-old scored 22 in the win against Washington Friday night.
This game saw the Bucks (3-2) lead the Celtics (3-3) 68-64 going into the fourth quarter, but a strong 32 point 4th quarter saw the Celtics take the win.
Milwaukee’s Ellis was one of six players scoring double digits. Brandon Jennings was not one of those players, as the Celtics held him to just four points.
Buck center Larry Sanders had a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds.
Boston was led by forward Paul Pierce with his 25 points and nine rebounds. Center Kevin Garnett was second in scoring with 18 points and had six rebounds.
Milwaukee looks to rebound from the loss with a road game against the Philadelphia 76ers (4-2) on Monday, November 10th.
