Summary:

The Boston Celtics are returning home after a huge Game 4 win on the road. With the series score tied at 2-2 both teams will go all-in when they meet at TD Garden

Details:

The Boston Celtics were not seen as a real contender in this Playoffs but now in the middle of the second round against the Bucks, the Celtics are considered the top team to win the Eastern Conference.

Being down twice in this series, the Celtics young squad showed that they are ready for big things as they managed to bounce back when needed against the defending champion.

Jayson Tatum is coming off a 30 points performance in Game 4 after scoring only 10 points on 4-of-19 shooting in the previous one. The Celtics will need another high scoring performance of their leading scorer in order to get one step away from the conference finals.

The Celtics are the best defensive team in the league allowing 104.5 points per game and they are also ranked on top of the league in allowed field goal and three-point percentage.

The Milwaukee Bucks are hoping to win their second consecutive NBA championship but the series against the Celtics have shown that it is tougher to defend a championship than win it in the first place.

The Bucks had the lead in both of the games against the Celtics played at the Fiserv Forum but failed to close Game 4 as they did in the previous one. The Bucks allowed 43 points in the last quarter which is definitely something that can go unpunished in the NBA Playoffs.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is leading the team in every game but with Khris Middleton being sidelined with injury, the Bucks often lack the second scoring option.

Milwaukee is the third-best offensive team in the league scoring 115.1 points per game and are ranked second in the league with 46.7 rebounds per game.

Key facts

  • The Boston Celtics have their full roster available for Game 5
  • Khris Middleton is still out for the Bucks
  • Both teams have won 5 of the last 10 games against each other
  • Bucks are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games

The Boston Celtics got the momentum in the series with a huge 116-108 win in Game 4 in Milwaukee which tied the series record at two games apiece. The Celtics' confidence is now sky high and they have a real opportunity to go 3-2 up when the two teams meet on Wednesday night. Jayson Tatum and Al Horford are coming from 30-point performances and if they keep scoring consistently the Celtics will definitely win this game and the series. Still, the experience is on the Bucks’ side and with Giannis Antetokounmpo in the lineup, no team can have an easy game against the defending champions. The Bucks will again play without Khris Middleton and the absence of the second-best scorer on the team is majorly felt by the Bucks. Anyway, this will be a close game and the Bucks covering a +8.5 spread should be very easy.
