— Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) May 3, 2019
The Bucks dropped game 1 of this series 112-90, kicking the series off with a setback. However, Milwaukee was able to bounce right back with a dominant 123-102 win in Game 2. Now that they’re heading to Boston, what can we expect out of the Bucks in the next two games? Seeing as how Milwaukee was 29-14 on the road this past season, we can fully expect them to bring their A-game. Furthermore, their 6-4 record against Boston in their last 10 games suggests that they can take the lead on the road tonight. Notwithstanding these trends, tonight’s NBA online betting odds are pegging Milwaukee as the underdog. This is because Boston has been great at home in the postseason recently. In fact, the Celtics are 17-1 both straight up and against the spread in their last 18 postseason games as the favorite.
Players to Watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo (26.0 ppg, 10.8 rpg, 3.3 apg), Khris Middleton (20.0 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 4.0 apg), and Eric Bledsoe (17.3 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 5.0 apg).
The Celtics are going to need more out of Kyrie Irving if they’re to take the lead at home this Friday evening. Game 2’s loss saw Irving contribute only 9 points on the night off of 4-18 shooting. Comparatively, Irving delivered 26 points in Game 1’s win and shot 57% from the floor. Ultimately Boston will have their hands full at home. After all, they’re facing Milwaukee, who ranked second overall in points scored in away games this past season. They were also one of 7 NBA franchises to have a positive point differential in road games.
Players to Watch: Kyrie Irving (20.8 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 7.7 apg), Jayson Tatum (14.3 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 1.3 apg), and Al Horford (13.2 ppg, 10.0 rpg, 4.0 apg).
