The Celtics and Bucks meet up for the second time in three nights, with Boston hoping for a little better performance following a 119-121 loss. The game wasn’t that close though, as Milwaukee was up 25 at one point.
The Bucks got the win on Wednesday despite just 14 points from Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was returning from a one game absence with a sprained knee. Makes you wonder what they can do if he has a big night.
Boston is undoubtedly in a little bit of a rut right now, losers of five of their last six. Even their lone win was against the lowly Magic, who they ironically traded with on Thursday.
Yes Evan Fournier is on his way to Boston, as are Moe Wagner and Luke Kornet who were acquired from Chicago. In the meantime the C’s will be shorthanded with Daniel Theis, Jeff Teague, and Javonte Green are headed elsewhere.
It’s only temporary until the newcomers can pass physicals, but do the Celtics seem shorthanded for Friday night? Theis was the starting C vs. the Bucks on Wednesday and Teague pumped in 15 points off the bench.
Jayson Tatum also only had 18 points vs. Milwaukee, after missing Monday’s loss to the Grizzlies with an illness. He may have not been fully back to 100%, but should be now with the extra rest.
The Bucks have shown great depth the last two games, building up a 25-point lead over Boston on Wednesday despite Antetokounmpo not looking fully healthy from his sprained knee.
One of the big contributors last time out vs. Boston was Bobby Portis, who had 21 points off the bench. Combined with 17 points from Brook Lopez that’s a big game from your two centers, something that should continue as Boston traded away one of theirs.
Khris Middleton also picked up the slack once again with Antetokounmpo having a down night, scoring 27 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. That’s the fourth time in the last five games going over 23.
Jrue Holiday also has big game potential on Friday night. He was held to just 13 in the last meeting with the Celtics, but pumped in 28 points and had 14 assists in Monday’s 27 point win over the Pacers.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
Boston ended up playing things close despite getting down 25 points the last time these two teams met. It was great for Milwaukee to hold on and win that game, but now they know the importance of closing things out.
Boston is a little bit shorthanded here until Fournier and Wagner arrive. Robert Williams is a capable starter at C in place of Theis, but Portis should run wild with the reserves again.
