32-46 (9-29 V) Milwaukee Bucks vs. Boston Celtics 46-32 (26-12 H)
The battle for 3rd place is on! The Celtics need a win and get a chance to take on the Bucks Friday night.
Milwaukee sits in the bottom tier of the Eastern Conference, making this one extremely important for Boston as they should be able to handle business here.
Milwaukee hung around for a bit in the East, but things eventually became too much for them. This team has a few things to build off of, but otherwise they will need to acquire some pieces.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is the main piece as he has simply been outstanding this year. On the season, he’s averaged 16.8 points per game to go along with 7.6 rebounds and 4.3 assists.
Antetokounmpo once again turned in another stellar performance last time out, going for 22-14-8 in a loss to Cleveland.
This Milwaukee team will look to build around him heading into the future, but what positions they need to add is still up in the air. Antetokounmpo was once a forward, but turned into a PG when the coaching staff wanted him to handle the ball.
Boston continues their pursuit of the 3rd seed, but time is running out. Currently the Celtics sit 4th, a 0.5 game behind Atlanta for the 3rd spot. Right on their heels is the Miami Heat, who is tied with them, and Charlotte who is just 1.0 game back.
Boston has used home court to their advantage this season. They ran off 14 straight wins at one point and now sit at 26-12 inside the TD Garden.
Isaiah Thomas has been the spark to this team and he once again was a giant part in the win over New Orleans. Thomas has recorded 17 straight 20 point games, which is now a franchise record in Boston.
Boston has won 2 of 3 this season against the Bucks which includes a 112-107 win back in February.
