The Celtics are not only facing elimination they are looking to break a three game losing streak, on the road no less. It is not a good situation to say the least.
Milwaukee is in a great spot with a chance to close out the series at home. They have been impressive in the last three games.
Boston is in a bad spot, there is no other way to put it. Not only are they facing elimination but elimination might force them to look at the way the team is constructed.
Even though the Celtics pride themselves on defense they might want to consider that that approach is just not enough. Rather than slow things down they might want to speed them up.
That could mean creating more opportunities in transition and letting Kyrie Irving try and take over. The same goes for Terry Rozier. They might want to play them together and tell them to bomb away.
Jayson Tatum has been better the last couple of games but has not become the star it appeared he was destined to. If he can really bust out for a game that would help a lot too.
Boston could go the other way and really try and be physical but that is tough when you are on the road and might not get the benefit of the doubt. Something has gotta give but they also have to want it.
Needless to say the Bucks are in a great spot. They have ridden fantastic performances from Giannis and their bench to a commanding 3-1 lead in the series.
The best thing about that winning formula is that is appears they will be able to duplicate. Or perhaps a starters busts out in a bigger way and they do not need to rely on the bench quite as much. Brook Lopez is a gut that could do it.
Milwaukee has not only been winning in the playoffs but winning big. They are 7-1 ATS in the playoffs with the one loss being the first game of this series. This is the biggest spread of this series but if they win it seems likely they cover too.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
This is the biggest line in this series and it seems logical that the Bucks are just going to take care of business like they have been.
This is an elimination game though so you want to think that Boston is going to be at max effort. They have seemed lethargic at times so far.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bucks -9
I think Milwaukee is focused and wins this one easily. They will close out with a double digit win to cash.
