The Boston Celtics have taken down the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks. With a Game 7 victory on their home floor, the Celtics will now advance to face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals. While Boston got a solid game from their two stars in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, it was Grant Williams who led the team in scoring. Pouring in 27 points, including 7 threes, Williams tallied career highs across the board.

With his 7th three of the game, Williams tied Steph Curry and Marcus Morris for the most made threes in a Game 7. Morris was the last player to do it, knocking down 7 threes against the Dallas Mavericks in last year's playoffs; however, Steph Curry has achieved the feat twice, doing so in 2018 vs. Houston and 2016 vs. OKC.

Grant Williams had a chance to pass both Curry and Morris, taking more attempts than each of those two players did in their respective performances, but was unable to add an 8th three to his career night. Williams' 18 attempts from deep is also a Game 7 record, falling just one attempt short of Russell Westbrook's all-time record for most three-point attempts in a playoff game.
