This Wednesday will see an Eastern Conference showdown between two likely playoff teams as the Milwaukee Bucks travel to Beantown to take on the Boston Celtics.
The Celtics took the last meeting between the two, winning 102-108 in Milwaukee on January 28th of this year.
The Bucks had a three-game winning streak snapped on Sunday with a 109-94 home loss against the Chicago Bulls.
This will be the second of a back-to-back for them, as they take on the Hornets in Charlotte on Tuesday. Milwaukee currently holds the 5th place spot in the East.
The Boston Celtics are officially the number one team in the Eastern Conference now, and they are currently riding a four-game win streak. Boston defeated the Miami Heat 108-102 on Monday to move ahead of the Cleveland Cavaliers for 1st place.
The Bucks have no room for error in terms of playoff positioning.
They have the same record as the Atlanta Hawks and the Indiana Pacers, and the 8th place Miami Heat are only two games behind.
Milwaukee had been steadily improving that position until their three-game win streak was snapped by the Bulls on Sunday. They will now face a tough test with two tough road games in consecutive nights.
The Bucks take on the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday then head straight to Boston for this matchup.
The Bucks currently rank 18th in the league in scoring offense, averaging 104.4 points per game. They rank 29th in rebounding with only 40.4 but 5th in assists with 24.2 per contest.
Defense has been important to their success, and they allow only 104.2 points per game which is tied for 9th in the league.
The Celtics have been on a tear as of late, winning four in a row and seven of their last eight. Their efforts (combined with the inconsistent play of the Cleveland Cavaliers) have now put them in the 1st place spot in the East.
They have a good chance of keeping the spot, as their remaining schedule is significantly easier than that of the Cavs.
This will be the fifth game of a six-game home stand for the Celtics, and they have won all four so far. They defeated the Miami Heat 108-102 on Monday in an impressive 30-points game from Isaiah Thomas.
Boston scores an average of 107.8 points per game which ranks 8th in the NBA. They rank 27th in rebounding with only 41.7 but 4th in assists with 25 per contest.
The Celtics are middle-of-the-pack defensively, allowing 105.1 points per game which ranks 14th in the league.
