Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks: Game 6 Odds, Analysis, NBA Betting Pick

Boston Celtics a Smart choice to close out Milwaukee Bucks

On the next possession, Rozier drilled a 3-pointer over Bledsoe, pushing Boston's lead to 16. He's shooting the ball, he's doing everything in a workout that you can do. Shortly after, Milwaukee made their first run of the half, as Shabazz Muhammad checked in and scored 11 points in just five minutes for Milwaukee, bringing them within four points.

But he ended up lifting this team, its fans and may change the immediate course of the season. Maybe they could win the next series against their soon-to-be rivals in Philadelphia.

The Milwaukee Bucks continue to battle history and the Celtics as they visit TD Garden for Game 5 of their opening-round playoff series with Boston on Tuesday night. Playoff Delly is an actual thing, and he's arrived just in the knick of time for this Milwaukee Bucks squad. With Smart's return to the lineup, Stevens slid Horford to center - a transition that works on a team that's often position-less like the Celtics. "He started tons of games for us last year, started in the playoffs for us last year and he played well in his rookie year". Within the first minute of checking in, Smart found himself diving on the floor after poking a ball loose, the first of many times he ended up on the ground in the game. Boston's depth looks to be a key factor heading into game 6.

"He blocks shots. He dives on the floor".

"I've been around a lot of teams and have been fortunate to be around a lot of really tough teams", Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said of this 2017-18 group a few weeks back to ESPN. Only two other teams have multiple players in the top 16 with New Orleans and Washington with two apiece. "But he makes them every night".

Not bad for a bench guy and someone who, as recently as last week, was a roster afterthought.

Game after game the stage gets bigger for the young guns from Boston Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. He could do that because Stevens trusts Smart cannot only handle the ball, but make good decisions.

"The rule states that under two minutes we are not allowed to review a potential 24-second violation unless the ball goes in the basket", Mauer said.

This means the last time a team was this hot from the field after four playoff games, Boston still had its "Big Three" of Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish, Los Angeles was running its "Showtime" offense behind Magic Johnson, Byron Scott and James Worthy and the National Basketball Association still had a best-of-5 decide its first-round matchups. "I just know what I said, it's a shot clock violation". We fed off his energy.

In the end I do think this series will be ending tonight because the Heat will not get enough from Wade, Whiteside and the rest of the supporting cast to outscore Embid, SImmons, and the switch-blade offensive juggernaut in Philly.
