The Winner Of Bucks And Celtics Will Win The Eastern Conference
The series between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Boston Celtics has been one of the craziest playoff series that we have seen in quite some time. Both teams were able to win one game apiece on each other’s home court before game five happened, where Milwaukee had one of the craziest playoff comebacks that we have seen this year.
What’s even crazier about the comeback from Milwaukee is that Boston pretty much did the exact same thing to them on their home court in game 4. It’s almost as if each team was supposed to win the opposite games that they actually won. The Point Spread has the Bucks as a -200 favorite to win the series.
When looking at the remainder of the series, the first thing that’s going to jump to mind is that these two teams are better than the Miami Heat and the Philadelphia 76ers. The Celtics have one of the best defenses that the NBA has seen in a long time, and the Milwaukee Bucks have the best player in the world.
What Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks have been able to do despite missing Khris Middleton has been absolutely insane. He’s a 20-point-per-game All-Star performer and now they currently have a 3-2 series lead against one of the best teams in the NBA and a chance to clinch it on their home court without him.
Whoever Wins The Bucks vs. Celtics Is Winning The East
Many people are saying that whoever wins this series between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Boston Celtics is going to win the Eastern Conference. From the looks of things between these two teams, it would truly be tough to say otherwise. Both teams have stars all over the court, and not only do they have guys who can put the ball in the net at a high level, but they also have guys who defend at the highest of levels.
When looking at a team like the Miami Heat and the Philadelphia 76ers, they certainly deserve some credit as well. Guys like Jimmy Butler and Joel Embiid are two of the best players in all of basketball, but the rest of the guys on those rosters are not of the same caliber as Milwaukee or Boston.
The Miami Heat’s second-best player is probably Kyle Lowry, and although he is certainly a great player in his own regard, he hasn’t really been able to do much for this Heat team, especially throughout the playoffs due to some injuries. The Philadelphia 76ers also have some key players on their team, such as guys like James Harden, but the decline that we’ve seen with Harden has been one of the craziest in NBA history.
Game 6 between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Boston Celtics could potentially determine who’s going to not only win the Eastern Conference but win an NBA title. The Western Conference certainly has some star-studded teams in the Golden State Warriors and the Phoenix Suns, but both of these teams are just as good, if not better, than both those squads.
Key Factors For The Bucks And Celtics In Game 6
When looking at who’s going to be the key factor in both of these games remaining for these two teams, if it does go seven games, look no further than the stars. Guys like Jayson Tatum, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday, Jaylen Brown, and potentially even Khris Middleton, as he could be returning in game 6, have to be the best players that they possibly can be.
If Jayson Tatum happened to shoot the ball better in game five against the Milwaukee Bucks in this series, there’s a chance that the Celtics would have been the winners of this game. He shot 12-29 from the field and just 2-11 from three-point range.
The Milwaukee Bucks are also going to need Jrue Holiday to do a bit more on the offensive side of the ball. Although he did have two huge stops for Milwaukee in the final 10 seconds of the game, he shot just 9-24 in game 5 and 5-22 in game 6.
This has been one of the best playoff series in the past few years.
