The Milwaukee Bucks raced off to an early lead on Friday night against the Boston Celtics and never looked back, going on to a 99-88 victory in front of a shocked crowd at TD Garden.
Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings was the star, going 9-for-17 while posting 21 points, 13 assists and six steals.
It was an ugly game throughout for the Celtics, who found themselves trailing by 16 points at the half and by 18 points after three quarters of action.
Through three quarters, the Celtics were shooting 37.5 percent from the field, while the Bucks were shooting 47 percent. Boston even committed 18 turnovers, including four by Paul Pierce and three each by new guards Courtney Lee and Jason Terry.
Pierce also went 3-for-11 from the floor, finishing with just 11 points.
It was a team effort by the Bucks. Every player who played for them except for Marquis Daniels and rookie Doron Lamb scored in the game.
Player of the Game: Brandon Jennings, PG
Jennings was all over the floor on Friday night, scoring at a high rate, dishing off to his teammates and causing turnovers with his quick hands. While backcourt mate Monta Ellis struggled from the field, Jennings' performance more than made up for it.
