Bucks vs Celtics: Predictions, Odds - Round 2

Giannis Antetokounmpo Danny Ainge Bucks Celtics

They wanted to shut down Giannis Antetokounmpo, the favorite for MVP this season, and force the Bucks to rely on their other All-Star, Khris Middleton, to lead them to victory.

One of the highlights of Boston's victory was third-year guard Jaylen Brown throwing down a powerful dunk early in the fourth quarter despite Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo coming over to try to deny him. Overall, Boston's shooting percentage was nearly 20 points greater than Milwaukee's and they won handily by a score of 112-90.

Celtics center Al Horford also played well, averaging 11 points and a team-leading 10 rebounds. The same goes for the way the Celtics shot from three-point range, where they went 13-31. When asked about the C's approach to The Greek Freak following the win, Brad Stevens refused to give away Boston's game plan.

Instead, Al Horford played one of his best games as a Celtic and absolutely bodied Antetokounmpo, easily winning the matchup between the two players. This second game is tomorrow night in Milwaukee at 8:00.

Milwaukee Bucks: 3 things to watch for in Game 1 against the Boston Celtics: Before yesterday afternoon's game, Adam McGee previewed the opening contest of the Bucks' Eastern Conference Semifinals series with the Boston Celtics. Antetokounmpo is among the best superstars in the National Basketball Association.

The Bucks had a top-four offense and defense in the regular season.

It's in fact the Celtics who will be going blind into Game 2 and the Bucks who will have to set the pace for the entire game throughout.

The shooting woes continued for the Bucks until midway through the second quarter, when Milwaukee used a 15-0 run to pull even at 40.
