This is the 3rd leg of 2018/2019 NBA playoffs round 2 since the result is 1:1 this game is very important for both teams. Since both teams show great form in NBA, this must be a very entertaining game, so please read our preview below.
Even playing without Smart, Celtics easily eliminated Pacers 4:0 and managed to win first away game against Bucks, taking home advantage to themselves. However, 2nd match Bucks won easily and now series is moving to Boston. Yet again, Boston‘s home form is also not the best. These two games will determinate who will qualify to East finals. However, Celtics are showing better quality game after the regular season ended. Teams leaders Irving, Hayward, and Tatum are performing much better as well. If they will manage to win both games at home, the result will be 3:1 and Boston will have a chance to end series at home. But if they will let Bucks play as they played in game 2, there is no way, Boston will be able to win. They must show a better attitude.
Bucks took 1st place in the East with the best win rate of 0.732% in the league. It only shows how ambitious and inspired this team is, after trashing Detroit 4:0 they suffered a huge blow to their ambitions, when they lost 1st game against Boston at home by 22 points, however, they recovered in game 2, and now series is 1:1 and Bucks travel to Boston, where they must take at least one game, otherwise they will be in great danger ending their season sooner than expected. Teams leaders Giannis, Middleton, Mirotic know the stakes and surely will concentrate better, another fact to their advantage they lead this season‘s head to head 3:2, and knowing what depends on this game, must only give extra motivation to not let Boston once again take lead in this series, but to take everything back to their own hands.
As mentioned teams have faced each other 5 times this season, Bucks have a lead 3:2. But now it is a chance to Boston to tie the result.
