Bucks rally for 105-98 win in Celtics home openerThe Associated Press | November 02,2013BOSTON ó Zaza Pachulia had 20 points and nine rebounds, making two free throws with 44 seconds left to give Milwaukee its first lead since the opening basket, and the Bucks rallied from a 22-point third-quarter deficit to beat the Boston Celtics 105-98 on Friday night.
The loss spoiled the home debut of new Celtics coach Brad Stevens and dampened the cheer following the Red Sox victory in the World Series on Wednesday. Red Sox owners John Henry and Tom Werner took the court before the game with the World Series trophy, and Hall of Famer Bill Russell was also courtside a few hours after a statue of him was unveiled near City Hall.
John Henson had 14 points and nine rebounds for the Bucks, who scored the last 10 points of the game.
