The Celtics were driven to the brink of elimination by the Bucks Monday after a 113-101 loss to Milwaukee at TD Garden.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a series-high 39 points in Game 4 and the Bucks now lead the series 3-1 as it tilts back to their home court for Game 5.

Former Celtics center Kendrick Perkins was watching and tweeting his thoughts all night. By the end of the game, he criticized the players and coaches for their “zero togetherness.”

“[The Celtics] showed no heart and played Selfish basketball tonight!” Perkins tweeted. “The Greek and Bucks imposed their will in every way possible. Very disappointed.”

Here are all of Perkins’s tweets from the Celtics’ Game 4 loss:

Perk predicted a big Celtics win before the game.

He was particularly excited about Marcus Smart’s return from injury.

Smart played 14:37 minutes and scored three points in his first game action since he partially tore an oblique muscle on April 10.

He was not thrilled with Terry Rozier’s decision-making on an early defensive play.

Perkins wanted a little bit more out of Gordon Hayward.

Hayward finished Game 4 with two points in more than 26 minutes of playing time.

He noted that Antetokounmpo had reached three fouls by the end of the first half.

Perkins thought the C’s were playing selfishly in the second half.

And he could feel the loss coming well before the game ended.

On Tuesday morning, Perkins said he “just realized” that Kyrie Irving is not Batman.

Perkins played in eight seasons for the Celtics, from 2003-11.
