There’s only one NBA game on the docket tonight. It’s Game 6 between Boston and Milwaukee. The Bucks must win if it wants one more chance to win in Boston.
The Bucks stayed close early but the Celtics, once again, outlasted the Bucks on the parquet floor in Boston.
Thon Maker and Tyler Zeller again filled in for the injured John Henson but they weren’t nearly as effective on the road as they were at home. There’s good reason to believe that will change tonight back in Milwaukee.
But this series is about more than just winning this game, if you’re Milwaukee. The Bucks’ focus is going to be simply on sending the series back for seven games but it’s going to have to win in Boston if it wants to advance; that’s becoming more and more urgent and apparent now.
If Milwaukee does look ahead to a Game 7, Boston will bring it, as it always does, and could end this series prematurely. But that shouldn’t happen. Milwaukee is just as dominant at home as Boston is.
Jabari Parker is the man who has to be huge in Games 6 and 7, or at least one of them, if Milwaukee is going to spring something. He’s looked better in the past few games and has the ability to go for 25, 30 points if he starts feeling it.
This is not only Milwaukee’s chance to force a Game 7, but try to gain some sort of momentum back to Boston.
Marcus Smart returned in Game 5 and was the maniac he is, diving on the floor for a loose ball within 30 seconds of checking back into the game in two months.
That sort of reckless abandon is why Smart’s best seasons are probably already behind him. He won’t age gracefully but he will be a factor again on the defensive end in the final game, or two, of the series.
The key matchup of the series has been Terry Rozier and Eric Bledsoe. Each point guard has gotten the best of the other on his home floor. If Rozier can buck that trend in Milwaukee, the C’s have a chance.
But I wonder how urgently the Celtics will come out in this game. They know it’s going to be awfully tough to win in Milwaukee and that they have Game 7 in their back pocket, if need be.
Perhaps, it would be better to coast in this one and put all their eggs in one basket, trying to advance to play Philadelphia with a win over the weekend in Game 7.
