The home team dominated this series at every turn. The Celtics defeated the Bucks in a dominant 112-96 Game 7 victory, but they never managed to win a game on the road. However, it was still impressive that they managed to fend off the Giannis Antetokounmpo-led Bucks despite coming into the playoffs without Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward due to injury. 

The Celtics will now move on to the second round to take on the 76ers.
