The Bucks drew first blood in the series at TD Garden with a 101-89, but the two teams have traded wins back and forth since then.

They lost 109-86 in Game 2 before returning home to split two home games, winning 103-101 and then losing 116-108.

Milwaukee regained the lead in Game 5 with a 110-107 victory on the road, giving them the chance to wrap up the series on their home court on Friday night.

The defending champions failed to take their chance though, losing 108-95.

Despite the loss Giannis Antetokounmpo had another huge game for Milwaukee with 44 points, 20 rebounds and six assists.

Boston lost their first road outing of the series 103-101, only to hit back with a 116-108 victory before returning home.

They failed to make home court advantage count as they lost 110-107 in Game 5, leaving them in a ‘must-win’ position on Friday night.
