The Celtics were down by 3, while Marcus Smart was fouled whereas trying a 3-pointer, however, referees determined the foul was on the ground earlier than the try was made.

"It was a foul. He caught the ball and was turning into his shot with both feet set. You can't say that's a sweep like that when you're going into a shot. Poor call. Poor no-call," Ime Udoka commented on the decisive play.

Celtics' head coach also added: "I will train my guys to flop just a little more."

On the opposite side, Bucks' superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo hinted at being upset with the refs too, as he was not getting the foul calls he wanted.

"How much does it cost if I say something about the refs? Is it $20,000? It's a lot of money. So, I should not do it. I'll save my money. I've got to pay for diapers," Giannis said post-game. He has two young sons, Liam and Maverick.

Greek Freak finished Game 3 with 42 points, 12 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals, and 3 blocks to navigate Bucks to a 2-1 series lead.
