Milwaukee Bucks Form


Milwaukee head back to Boston needing to win there for the third time in this Eastern Conference semi-final.

The Bucks drew first blood in the series at TD Garden with a 101-89, but the two teams have traded wins back and forth since then.

They lost 109-86 in Game 2 before returning home to split two home games, winning 103-101 and then losing 116-108.

Milwaukee regained the lead in Game 5 with a 110-107 victory on the road, giving them the chance to wrap up the series on their home court on Friday night.

The defending champions failed to take their chance though, losing 108-95.

Despite the loss Giannis Antetokounmpo had another huge game for Milwaukee with 44 points, 20 rebounds and six assists.

He got very little help from the supporting cast, with Jrue Holiday the only other starter to hit double digits in scoring with 17 points, four assists and three steals.

Pat Connaughton had 14 points off the bench, while Bobby Portis contributed 10 rebounds.

Boston Celtics Form


Boston rescued the series on Friday night, and they now have a chance to seal an Eastern Conference Final spot on their home court.

The Celtics dropped the opening game of the series, losing 101-89, but immediately responded to level it up with a 109-86 win.

And that has been the story of their series so far – going a game down and then levelling it up.

Boston lost their first road outing of the series 103-101, only to hit back with a 116-108 victory before returning home.

They failed to make home court advantage count as they lost 110-107 in Game 5, leaving them in a ‘must-win’ position on Friday night.

They did just that though, downing the Bucks 108-95 in Milwaukee.

Jayson Tatum produced a sensational performance as he led the Celtics to victory with 46 points, nine rebounds and four assists.

Jaylen Brown played his part with 22 points, five rebounds and four assists.

Marcus Smart contributed 21 points, seven assists and five rebounds, while Al Horford grabbed 10 rebounds.

Verdict


Neither side has managed to make home advantage a factor in this series so far.

Boston will be feeling good after that huge win in Milwaukee though, so we are backing the Celtics.

Spread – Boston -5.0 @ -110
