Grant Williams leads Boston Celtics past Milwaukee Bucks in convincing Game 7 victory in NBA playoffs

BOSTON -- Grant Williams had never taken more than eight 3-pointers in a game before this series. He'd never made more than six. He'd never led the Boston Celtics in scoring. All of those things changed Sunday in the NBA playoffs.

"Grant won us a playoff game tonight," Jayson Tatum said. "A Game 7."

Williams had a career-high 27 points, while Tatum had 23 of his own as the Celtics dominated the second half in a 109-81 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks at TD Garden on Sunday.

Boston needed to win Games 6 and 7 after blowing a 14-point fourth-quarter lead in Game 5 that allowed the Bucks to take a 3-2 lead.
