Welcome back Marcus Smart! Playing for the first time since thumb surgery last month, his energy helped the Boston Celtics win game five of their NBA Playoff series vs Milwaukee, 92-87.

The C's now lead the series 3-2 with game six back in Milwaukee.

Smart came off the bench and played 25 crucial minutes. He scored nine points, brought down five rebounds, dished out four assists and blocked threee shots. And then there were hustle plays all over the floor.

Al Horford was a big factor too - 22 points and 14 rebounds.

Khris Middleton led the Bucks with 23. Giannis Antetokounmpo had a series low 16 points, thanks to a new defensive scheme by the Celtics. Coach Brad Stevens had Semi Ojeleye guard him most of the night.

The Celts can wrap up the series with a win Thursday night.
