Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks Prediction

Despite the Celtics playing the first game of the semifinals at home, Boston ended up losing by double digits to the Bucks. The offense struggled in the second half, only scoring 19 points in the four quarter. Meanwhile, Milwaukee won the game behind Giannis Antetokounmpo's triple-double with 24 points, 13 rebounds, and 12 assists. Milwaukee has more experience after winning the whole thing last season. Between Jrue Holiday and Antetokounmpo, the Bucks have plenty of all-star talent on the floor without Middleton. The Celtics shot 33.3% from the field against Milwaukee in the first game despite knocking down 36% from deep. Boston will make adjustments at the end of the day. Milwaukee's defense wasn't that great during the regular season, allowing 112 points per 100 possessions along with a 53.9% effective field goal percentage. Boston can't really do much worse than shooting 33.3% from the field.

Get 20/1 Odds on a 3-Pointer being scored in Celtics vs Bucks The Celtics also lost on the glass and turned the ball over 18 times. Over the regular season, Milwaukee wasn't a major threat when it came to turnovers either, earning just 13% turnovers on the year. The Bucks will ultimately get more second chances but the Celtics are still the better defense despite what happened in Game 1. The Bucks will limit second chances on their end and limit foul shots but Boston's offense was just a bit more consistent over the year. The Bucks aren't the Nets. The offense isn't going to come easily. But look for the Celtics to make adjustments and improve on the defensive end while earning better shot attempts inside the arc. Grab the Celtics at -4.
