The NBA is back on the schedule today as the Boston Celtics will clash with the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Celtics are heading into this game after a 114-111 road win over Indiana in their last game Tuesday night and pushed as a three-point favourite. And on the other side, Milwaukee was dropped 109-95 on the road by Denver Monday night as a seven-point underdog in their last contest.
Boston Celtics Form
The Celtics managed to get a good win in the game against the Pacers. However, their recent form is not good enough as they had lost 4 of their previous 5 games. The Celtics entered Wednesday second in the Atlantic Division, three games behind the Raptors for the top spot. Also, for the Eastern Conference playoff picture, the team is third, 9.5 games behind the Bucks for the conference top spot. Jayson Tatum was their main men in the win against the Pacers as he led Boston with 30 points in the win.
On the offensive side of the game, the Celtics score an average of 113 points per game. And that is the 11th scoring record in the NBA. Also, they have an average of 46 rebounds combined with 22.8 dimes per game. On the season, Boston is 2nd in the league in scoring defence by conceding an average of 106.8 points per contest.
Milwaukee Bucks Form
The Bucks are one of the best teams in the league. However, they have now lost their last three games. Yet, the team still has 14 games over the Pacers in the standings. As for the Eastern Conference playoff picture, the team has a 6.5-game lead over Toronto for the top spot in the conference. The Bucks will aim to get back to winning ways and this game is a great opportunity at home.
On the offensive side of the game, the Bucks score an average of 119.7 and that is the best scoring record in the league. Milwaukee has the best record on 51.9 boards per contest combined with the 5th record of 26.2 assists per game. Also, on the defensive side of the game, they are 6th with 107.3 points conceded per night.
The Bucks are missing Antetokounmpo and that was evident in their last two games. However, Milwaukee is still comfortably ahead in the race for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. On the other side, Boston is a solid team and they have a chance. But, I expect that the Bucks will bounce back in this game. Take Milwaukee in this one.
