Jrue Holiday plays hero twice on D in final seconds as Bucks take Game 5 (1:09)

Jrue Holiday makes a pair of crucial defensive plays against Marcus Smart to lead the Bucks to a pivotal Game 5 victory over the Celtics. (1:09)

What a win for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Down by double digits during parts of Game 5 of their Eastern Conference Semifinals series against the Boston Celtics, the Bucks were clutch on both sides of the ball as the game came down to the wire. With blood streaming down his face from an earlier injury, Giannis Antetokounmpo hit a clutch 3-pointer in the final two minutes to keep the game from getting away. After a sequence where Antetokounmpo missed a potential game-tying free throw, Bobby Portis grabbed the rebound and tapped it in to give the Bucks a lead.

That wasn't the end of the late-game heroics for Milwaukee. Boston had a chance to take the lead in the final seconds, but Jrue Holiday blocked Marcus Smart's layup attempt -- and, crucially, grabbed the rebound. Then, after two Pat Connaughton free throws gave the Bucks a three-point lead, Holiday came up strong again, stealing the ball from Smart and sealing the win for the Bucks. To give a sense of just how rare that is, according to ESPN Stats and Information, Holiday is the first player over the last 25 postseasons to record a block and a steal inside the final 10 seconds of the 4th quarter of a playoff game.

Players from around the game gave massive props to Holiday on his incredible performance.

Game 5 as a whole drew widespread praise from players like Aaron Rodgers and J.J. Watt.
