The first game of the playoff series between the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics came down to the wire, and Terry Rozier appeared to seal the win for the home team with a dagger three right before time expired, only, it wasn’t the end after all.
The game had previously been tied up when Malcolm Brogdon nailed a trey with just over 10 seconds left. Then, Rozier got free and nailed his own three with just half a second left on the clock.

Nobody thought the game would end in any other way. The game had to be over at that point, right?
But somehow, some way, Khris Middleton hit from 35 feet out, letting go of the ball right before the final buzzer sounded. Originally, the refs waved the shot off, but after review they got it right by saying he had gotten the shot off.
OVERTIME 99-99 just STUNNING
