Boston Celtics Form

Boston enter this game on a good run of form, having maintained top spot in the Eastern Conference with nine wins their previous 11 games.

The Celtics wrapped up 2023 with a six-game win streak that started with a 114-119 win on the road in Sacramento.

They then travelled to Los Angeles to beat the Clippers 145-108 and the Lakers 126-115, before returning home to beat Detroit 128-122 in overtime and Toronto 120-118.

Boston then beat San Antonio 134-101 on the road, before seeing their streak finally come to an end with a 127-123 defeat at Oklahoma City.

The Celtics rebounded to beat Utah 126-97 and Indiana 118-101, and then bounced back from a 133-131 loss to the Pacers with a 127-120 victory over Minnesota.

Milwaukee Bucks Form

Milwaukee come into this matchup on a rough run of form, having won just three of their previous eight games.

The Bucks were beaten 129-122 on Christmas Day, but rebounded with a couple of road wins, beating Brooklyn 144-122 and Cleveland 119-111.

They failed to make it three-in-a-row as they then lost 122-113 at home to Indiana, and that became back-to-back defeats when they visited the Pacers and lost 142-130.

Milwaukee avoided a third straight defeat as they won 125-121 in San Antonio, but they have not won since.

The Bucks were then beaten 112-108 in Houston, before returning home for a 132-116 defeat to Utah.

Verdict

Boston have dominated recent meetings and are in much better form than Milwaukee heading into this matchup, so the Celtics offer plenty of appeal with the points.
