(1:09)BOSTON -- The Milwaukee Bucks leaned on their championship pedigree in Game 5 on Wednesday night, rallying from a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit to escape Boston with a 110-107 victory against the Celtics and take a 3-2 series lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.The winner of Game 5 in a best-of-seven series tied at two has gone on to win the series 82% of the time in NBA postseason history, and Milwaukee rallied to take control of the series by outscoring Boston 33-21 in the fourth quarter, including 13-6 in clutch time.Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 40 points and 11 rebounds, while guard Jrue Holiday added 24 points and sealed the game with a block and steal on back-to-back possessions against Marcus Smart."They're defending champs," Smart said after the game. It wound up being their last field goal of the game.The Bucks outscored the Celtics 11-2 from that point on.After Horford's dunk, Antetokounmpo knocked down a 3-pointer on the next possession -- his second of the night and only his fourth this series -- to cut the deficit to three, and Holiday, who finished 9-for-24 from the field on the night, hit a wide-open trey to tie the game."Of course, we're gonna be down," Celtics coach Ime Udoka said.
