Best Twitter reaction to Celtics' dominant Game 1 playoff win vs. Bucks


The Boston Celtics sent a wakeup call to the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series Sunday afternoon at Fiserv Forum.

The C's gave a brilliant performance and earned a convincing 112-90 win to steal homecourt advantage from the East's top seed.

Kyrie Irving led the Celtics with 26 points, and his 11 assists tie a playoff career high. Al Horford was exceptional as well, pouring in 20 points with a team-high 11 rebounds. His defense on Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo was fantastic, too. Antetokounmpo was held to 22 points on 7-for-21 shooting along with a minus-24 rating. 

Here's a roundup of the best Twitter reaction to the Celtics' emphatic series-opening victory over the Bucks.

Game 2 is Tuesday night in Milwaukee.
