Milwaukee Bucks vs Boston Celtics Game 5 odds

That being said, the Celtics need to fix that with their defensive activity, and it should not take a home crowd for them to bring the kind of effort that can bring the Bucks back down around their season average from deep. The Celtics are 7-1 ATS in their last eight home games, 7-1 ATS in their last eight Conference Quarterfinals games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall.

The Milwaukee Bucks defended their homecourt and tied the series as they go back to Boston for Game 5.

The Bucks can look like world-beaters one night, capable of going toe-to-toe with the best in the game, only to come out looking flat and lethargic against a league bottom-dweller the next.

The NBA released its Last Two Minute Report (L2M) for the Boston Celtics' Game 4 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday.

Elsewhere on Tuesday, second seeds Boston shrugged off their injury crisis to down Milwaukee 120-106 to take a 2-0 lead in their first round series.

In other words, how important is Game 5 in a series tied at 2-2?

This season Smart averaged 10.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists for the Celtics, though much of his impact comes from physical, game-changing plays and can not be measured in a box score. Khris Middleton chipped in 23 points, Jabari Parker put up 16 off the bench and Malcolm Brogdon had 10.

Bucks: Starting C John Henson missed a second straight game with a sore back. Horford had only four points on four field goal attempts and no free throws in the first half with a plus-minus of minus-8. "He's having a good series, and we're going to need him to continue to do that".

"He hasn't played in a month and a half, so this is just an opportunity to come in and do what he does best, and that's impact the game with his energy, his physicality, his savvy, and his skill", Stevens said.

Every point - even Smith's buzzer-beater in the first quarter - mattered in this one, as the Cavs held on to a 104-100 win. Their deficit reached as many as 19 in the third quarter before Boston rallied. This was backed up by a tremendous second period where they outscored the Celtics, 27-18, givingthem a 51-35 lead at halftime. So important that the victor of Game 5 in that scenario goes on to win the series 86 percent of the time.

Jaylen Brown shouldered the offensive burden in the absence of Irving, scoring 30 points in 33 minutes on court. Jayson Tatum added 21 points while Al Horford and Morris each had 13. Each of the four games in this series has reflected the multiple-personality disorder that has plagued the Bucks at times this season.

But, one play in particular from the Greek Freak was the highlight of the game. "I don't think I've played with that fire I played with the first two games".

As the series returns to Boston, the Celtics are hoping Terry Rozier can find his stroke again. "We know how he plays within their system", Prunty said. He scored 23 points in each of those Boston wins, confidently hitting 47 percent of his shots.
