The NBA playoffs are back on the schedule today as the Boston Celtics will clash with the Milwaukee Bucks. This will be game 5 in this series. The Celtics are heading into this game being at 3-1 behind. On the other side, the Bucks won the last 3 games
Boston Celtics Form
The Celtics had a strong start in this semifinal series. However, they were not able to keep that winning momentum as they have lost the next 4 games. Now, they are 3-1 behind and this game may be their last for the season. On a positive side, they played well in the 4th game and they were the better team in the first half.
Yet, they dropped in the second half and the end result was another loss.
On the offensive side of the game, the Celtics score an average of 103.5 points per game. Also, they have an average of 47.8 boards combined with 21.8 assists per night.
On the defensive side of the game, the Celtics concede an average of 102 points per night which is the 3rd best in the postseason so far.
Milwaukee Bucks Form
The Bucks are one of the best teams in the league this season. Moreover, they kept their solid form in the postseason as they have dominant in the seminals against the Celtics. Now they are in a position to progress in the finals if they win this game. Also, it is important to emphasize that they did not start this series well. But this is a very strong offensive team and they quickly returned to winning ways. Furthermore, they have the in-form Giannis Antetokounmpo as he led the team in the last win with 39 points, 16 rebounds and four assists.
On the offensive side of the game, the Bucks score an average of 117 points per game. Milwaukee also has an average of 51.3 rebounds combined with 25.4 assists per night.
On the defensive side of the game, the Bucks concede an average of 102.9 points per night.
The Celtics are a solid team and they showed that in the first game of the series. However, they are facing maybe the strongest offensive team in the league this season. It will be a tight game but I believe that the Bucks will put this to bed. Therefore, I will go for Milwaukee in this one.
