Thursday, November 1 the marquee match of the night features the Milwaukee Bucks tipping off versus rival Boston Celtics. This could be a Eastern Conference Finals preview as the Bucks are the NBA’s last unbeaten squad and the Celtics are preseason favorites to win the conference.
Last season the squads split the season series. The Celtics hold the all-time record having bested the Bucks 108 of their 210 matches.
Despite missing superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo the Bucks bested the Raptors to keep their unbeaten streak alive. Toronto was also missing their star but the game wasn’t close.
Seven different players scored in double digits as the Bucks nailed a franchise high 19 treys. This perhaps represents how Mike Budenholzer has shifted the offense since arriving. Even center Brook Lopez is launching treys with wild abandon attempting nine vs. the Raptors (successful with three).
That said, this team’s success will be predicated on their Greek superstar who leads the team in scoring (25.0) rebounding (14.2), and blocks (1.7). Despite rumors of an improved perimeter shot Giannis Antetokounmpo is shooting an anemic 0.63% from deep, but with nine teammates shooting over 36% Milwaukee rightfully aren’t concerned about this portion of his game.
The Bucks boast the leagues sixth best offense and second best defense a factor possibly bolstered by the opponents they’ve played. No doubt a victory over the Celtics to pair with their win over the Raptors would quiet the critics on this matter.
Antetokounmpo (concussion) is expected to play after clearing protocol. Rookie Donte DiVincenzo (quad contusion) is questionable D.J. Wilson (hamstring) is out as are Trevon Duval (eye) and Jodie Meeks (suspension).
Through seven games the Celtics have struggled to regain the form of last season. This is mostly due to Stevens trying to incorporate an absolute glut of talent via Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to all get enough touches.
Al Horford remains the most underrated defensive talent in the NBA while Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart provide top notch reserve help.
Boston has struggled integrating Irving and Hayward into the offense, however, Irving’s 31 point breakout performance in Tuesday’s win over Detroit suggests he has turned a corner.
Back to back wins over Detroit also witnessed the Celtics overall offensive improvement as they scored 109 and 108 points.
Jaylen Brown (foot) is questionable while Daniel Theis (foot) and Jabari Bird (personal) are both definitely out.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
Both squads will approach this match as a must win even with it being this early in the season. A Bucks win would increase the focus on Milwaukee being the top Eastern squad, whereas the Celtics will be inspired to be the team who ends the Bucks win streak and reenter the equation as the conference’s best.
