Matthew Dellavedova scored an incredible first-quarter buzzer-beater as the Milwaukee Bucks went onto level their NBA playoffs series against the Boston Celtics at 2-2 early on Monday morning (AEST).
Milwaukee had just scored a late bucket and with only 1.2 seconds remaining in the first quarter, Boston’s Marcus Morris tried to save time by rolling the ball down the court from the in-bound pass.
Dellavedova swooped on the loose ball and tossed it into the bucket as the buzzer sounded, handing Milwaukee a 24-17 lead at the first break.

Not only did the bucket make for highlight-reel material, the two points scored turned out to be vitally important in the outcome of the game with the Bucks going onto defeat the Celtics 104-102.
The win levelled the round one best-of-seven series at 2-2 with game five set to played tomorrow at 9 am.
