This is an awesome matchup to come out of the break with. Boston has been playing really well but they have some catchup to do in the Eastern Conference.
Milwaukee has yet to have a lull this season and they upgraded at the break. They are looking to show that they can be a real threat to Golden State and any of the other contenders in the league. There might not be many,
Boston closed the break with back to back wins including an important one at Philly. Knocking down the Bucks on the road would send another message for sure.
Coming out of the break the Celtics are dealing with injuries. Kyrie Irving and Terry Rozier should be on the floor but it is not certain and Gordon Hayward is questionable. Irving and Rozier are key.
They showed their depth in the final game before the break with all five starters in double figures and Jaylen Brown chipping in 17 points off the bench. They are going to need that against the Bucks.
They also need someone to step up and try and control Giannis. In Brown and Jayson Tatum they have a couple of strong athletes who should be up to the challenge…and who should be able to score to make him work too.
Al Horford remains steady in the middle. They are going to need him to be able to guard on the perimeter and on the inside in this one.
Giannis is having a great season but he is on the injury list for this one with a sore knee. You have to know his status which is likely that he will be on the floor for this one. He was awesome in the All-Star game could steal the MVP from Harden.
This could be the debut for Niko Mirotic, who they acquired from the Pelicans. He is a scorer who will try and open up even more space for Giannis to do his thing. His real value will probably be felt in the playoffs more than right now.
Khris Middleton’s scoring is down to 17ppg but somehow he still was selected for the All-Star game. It would not have been my choice but he is still a player that most people underrate. With Mirotic he is likely going to see his scoring slide more but the team could be better. We will see.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
If Giannis plays I think you have to go with the home side. Though the over might be a strong side too.
Rozier and Irving are probable and they need at least one of them to be really good. They are both such good scorers.
