WATCH: Tatum drills game-winning three over Giannis

Celtics

The Boston Celtics bounced back from their winless preseason in a big way on Wednesday night.

Led by Jaylen Brown (33 points) and Jayson Tatum (30), the C's were able to edge out the Bucks to start their 2020-21 season off with an impressive victory. Tatum drilled the game-winning 3-pointer with 0.4 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Giannis Antetokounmpo had a chance to send the game to overtime with two free throws, but the Bucks star missed the second to seal the Celtics win.

Jeff Teague was outstanding off the bench in his C's debut, tallying 19 points and four assists in 25 minutes. Tristan Thompson added 12 points and eight rebounds in his first game with Boston.

FINAL SCORE: Boston Celtics 122, Milwaukee Bucks 121
