Milwaukee Bucks vs. Boston Celtics: Game 1 Prediction, NBA Playoff Odds

Wizards coach Scott Brooks

Updates with new lead. Horford is a star but not one renowned for dominating games while Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum are in their second and first seasons, respectively.

Rozier hit a 3-pointer with 0.5 seconds left, presumably a game-winner. Even All-Star Al Horford can not claim to have the same kind of finishing touch in the paint or the sweet mid-range jumper that Tatum has. Can the young Bucks stun the Celtics in the opening round?

Rozier's 3-pointer gave the Celtics a 104-103 lead with 3:43 left in overtime.

The Milwaukee Bucks are inviting fans across the state to be part of the excitement of playoff basketball - and announced on Friday, April 13 a look at some of the extras that will be available to fans during the Bucks' run in the postseason. Only Russell Westbrook and LeBron James had more fast-break points this season, but Antetokounmpo's 1.20 points per possession in transition was more efficient than both of them. In contrast, Middleton has had his worst shooting season since his rookie year, with his 35.9% from deep nearly 8% less than last year. And like I said, we're on track for the next three weeks, possibly Game 7 of the first round, definitely second round. "I know I gotta fill big shoes".

The two teams will meet again Tuesday night for Game 2.

It's a good thing, too, because Milwaukee will be taking the court with a generational talent of its own in sensational 23-year-old forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, who averaged 26.9 points, 10.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game for the 44-38 Bucks. He sets screens, spaces the floor, and always makes the right pass, and his 12.9 points and 4.7 assists don't go near giving justice to his offensive importance to Boston. Malcolm Brogdon scored all 16 of his points after halftime. So far, not even the Celtics and their league-best defensive rating have truly had an answer.

British PM May summons ministers to discuss possible military action in Syria
Conservative former London mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith, tweeted: "We need a clear response to the Syrian chemical outrage". President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that he hoped common sense would prevail and that the situation would stabilise.

Additionally, why didn't the Celtics foul on the play?

Part of the reason the Bucks were in bad spots is because they were hampered by turnovers.

Horford has his loyal defenders in Boston, who will point to all the intangibles he brings.

"That's not getting shot up", Middleton said.

With their playoff matchup looming, both teams are ready to go to war with each other, in hopes of finding a way to get to the NBA Finals.
