NBA scores: Boston loses crazy game in Milwaukee

Jonathan Daniel

The Celtics weren't the only team to lose a disappointing game over the weekend; just ask the Lakers.

Over the weekend, the Boston Celtics lost a brutal game to the Milwaukee Bucks, 91-88. The Celtics held a 17-0 lead in the contest before coming apart without star point guard Rajon Rondo, ultimately falling to a determined Milwaukee squad.

Paul Pierce led Boston with 19 points in the losing effort.

The San Antonio Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies also played a thriller on Saturday, with the Spurs coming out victorious in overtime, 99-95. After getting a ton of heat for not playing Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Danny Green against Miami earlier in the week, Gregg Popovich got the result he wanted against his main division foe.

Another stunning contest took place at the Staples Cener on Sunday, where the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the struggling Orlando Magic, 113-103. In Dwight Howard's first game against his old team, the center had a great individual showing with 21 points and 15 rebounds, but it wasn't enough.
