Monroe responds with 29 points in Bucks last second win over Celtics

Jason Kidd's starting lineup changes put Greg Monroe on the bench to start the game, but Monroe bounced back to score 29 points, including a go-ahead bucket with :01 to play in Milwaukee's 112-111 win.

Former Marquette star Jae Crowder tied the game with :23 to play, scoring two of his 18 points for Boston. Monroe responded on the next possession, giving the Bucks a two point lead with just one second to play. That final second was loaded with action, as a pair of Kelly Olynyk free throws tied the game again before Khris Middleton hit a free throw for the game's deciding point.

The Bucks snapped a losing skid and raised their record to 21-32 on the season with the win.
