Celtics vs. Bucks score: Jayson Tatum explodes for 46 points to lead Boston to crucial Game 6 victory

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 44 points and grabbed 20 rebounds but Boston was too much for Milwaukee

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jayson Tatum put on performances for the ages on Friday night in their 108-95 victory as the two All-Stars each eclipsed the 40-point plateau as the Boston Celtics forced a do-or-die Game 7 matchup against Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday afternoon at TD Garden.  

Tatum was fantastic for the Celtics on a night where they needed him to be as he saved his best performance of the series for an elimination game on the road in what can easily be described as a hostile environment. Tatum edged out Giannis for a game-high 46 points to go along with nine rebounds and four assists. While his effort came in a loss, Antetokounmpo was dominant finishing the game with 44 points to go along with an astonishing 20 rebounds and six assists. 

Game 7 is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET on Sunday with ABC handling the national broadcast.
