For the Milwaukee Bucks, revenge is a dish best served in five games.
Tonight in front of a raucous and rowdy home crowd at Fiserv Forum, Giannis and the Bucks finished off the Boston Celtics, 116-91, moving onto the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 2001 – and in impressive, dominating fashion. (We'll just forget Game 1.)
The Bucks now await the winner of the Raptors-76ers series and prepare for the franchise's biggest series in almost two decades – but in the meantime, let's savor this victory by looking back at some of our favorite images and moments from the end of Bucks-Celtics.

6. Don't think we forgot this
7. And the crowd goes wild!
9. The game-changing moment
10. Juked out of his jockstrap
11. You hate to see it happen
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
