Danny Ainge suffers mild heart attack, is expected to make full recovery

So without further ado, let's look at three things that loom large ahead of the Bucks' Game 3 clash against the Boston Celtics on Friday night.

Now the Bucks' second round series with the Celtics is changing over to the Northeast with Boston hosting Game 3 Friday night at TD Garden.

According to the Celtics, Ainge received immediate medical attention during the team's Game 2 matchup against the Bucks. He will return to Boston shortly.

"What he's going through is more important than any game we are playing", Celtics forward Jayson Tatum said.

Utilities reported more than 50,000 electrical outages statewide, with trees blocking roads and highways in many place. Garner, Clayton and Knightdale are under a severe thunderstorm warning until noon, the National Weather Service says.


I sincerely doubt they will be able to hold the Bucks under 100, but Milwaukee may not have that much more by the game's end.

"Danny is just one of those guys who takes time out of his life, his day when he's doing his schedule, to make sure you're all right", Celtics guard Marcus Smart said. "Game 3 is Game 3". "He constantly checks in on us, my family, and things like that". He attended BYU where he was a star basketball player for the Cougars.

Ainge was a two-time NBA champion with the Celtics in the 1980s and became their President of Basketball Operations in 2008.

"From when I first got here Danny was that person I seen every day". But in 2007, he acquired Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen to play alongside Paul Pierce, beginning in earnest the NBA's "super team" era. "I just hope he makes a speedy recovery".
