Boston Celtics

Players betting on basketball this evening can clearly see that Boston is pegged as the underdog. This is to be expected however, since Boston’s two losses of the series come on the road. The Celtics ended up losing those two road games by a combined 26-points, so it’s easy to see why the odds are ruling against them once again. Nevertheless, even if they do lose tonight, it’s more than likely that Boston will close out the series at home in Game 7. Boston has been very dominant at home in this series. Notwithstanding their home dominance, there’s no question Boston would rather finish things up this evening.

Players to Watch: Jaylen Brown (21.8 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 1.8 apg), AL Horford (18.2 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 3.2 apg), and Terry Rozier (16.2 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 6.6 apg).

Milwaukee Bucks

The Bucks were hopeful that the Kyrie Irving injury would cripple Boston to the point where beating them would be a walk in the park. Instead, we’re seeing a Boston team that’s committed to staying alive despite the numerous injuries they’ve sustained. Facing a 3-2 deficit, Milwaukee is undoubtedly starting to sweat. All in all, the Bucks should feel pretty good about their chances this evening. But will 3 home wins be enough to turn the tables in Game 7?

Players to Watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo (25.4 ppg, 8.8 rpg, 7.0 apg), Khris Middleton (25.0 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 3.6 apg), and Eric Bledsoe (12.6 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 4.0 apg).
