Thursday night NBA action finds a couple of Eastern Conference playoff teams from a year ago. Boston and Milwaukee both have their sights set on advancing further than they did a year ago, a feat that got significantly harder for Boston with the injury to free agent prize Gordan Hayward to start the season.
Milwaukee has gotten off a a strong start thanks to the elite play of the Greek Freak. The season is very young but nobody in the league has been more impressive.
Boston made big moves in the offseason to create a 1-2 punch of Kyrie Irving and Hayward but they are already down to just one…and Kyrie, though leading the team in scoring has not been impressive. This is a talented team in transition.
Kyrie is not lacking for confidence but he is shooting less than 40% from the field. He is still going to think he will make his next 25 shots and the Celtics are going to need him to take the big shots Isaiah Thomas used to take.
Boston has to be thrilled with the development of second year player Jaylen Brown.
One of the reasons they cleared the decks in the Irving trade was to creaet more opportunities for the very athletic Brown. He is second on the team at 18ppg.
He just needs to work on his free throw shooting.
Even though they drafted a very similar player in Jayson Tatum they are getting good production from the rookie out od Duke. He is averaging 15 and 8 and is contributing on defense too.
He can play a little PF now and again making Boston very versatile.
This is going to be Brad Stevens’ toughest job in Boston. There is talent there for sure bu they are going to be relying on players who haven’t done it in Green and White or even in the league on a lot of nights.
The Bucks are looking good atop the Central Division. They beat the Celtics on opening night on the road and now have a chance to really get up on the C’s in the conference rankings, which are really more important.
This team might have lost during the first round of the playoffs to Toronto last spring but they really pushed the Raptors and look hungry for more.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is off to a fantastic start. As the season progresses he is not going to continue to make more than 65% of his shots but if his game has truly risen to another level the team can rise with him. The perimeter group that the Bucks are putting out there right now is pretty amazing.
Inside they are having woes though.
They still haven’t really figured out how to maximize the talents of Greg Monroe and Thon Maker is struggling early. As a result John Henson is getting some run but he is really a rim protector and rebounder only.
If they get more efficiency up front this group will be dangerous.

Free Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
I think this number might be a little kind to Boston for right now. Milwaukee is at home and playing well while the Celtics are finding themselves.
I am not reading too too much in the first game of the season but it is a data point that has to be factored in a well.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bucks -4
The Celtics have a few guys they can throw at Giannis but I expect him to lead the Bucks to another victory.
