Numbers preview: Boston Celtics (2) vs. Milwaukee Bucks (7)

Numbers preview: Boston Celtics (2) vs. Milwaukee Bucks (7)

Sure, keeping Antetokounmpo contained will give the Celtics a good chance of advancing to the second round of the playoffs, but the Bucks have other dangermen in Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton which Boston must consider. "The thumb felt well", Smart told reporters. "So we're on the right path".

However, Smart, who tore a tendon in his thumb in March, has assured he will be available for the Eastern Conference semifinals, if not before. But in addition to Hayward, the Celtics will be without Irving, Marcus Smart and reserve center Daniel Theis.

With all of that in mind, let's take a closer look at the action ahead, and see which team can prevail in Sunday's Game 1.

"It's going well. I'm trying to stay in shape". So I think I have another doctor's appointment, a checkup, in the next two weeks. If she clears us to be able to start a little bit earlier, than we might.

The NBA Playoffs officially begin later today, but the Boston Celtics won't begin their first-round series of the postseason until they host the Milwaukee Bucks at the TD Garden tomorrow.

Giannis Antetokounmpo showed out for the Bucks with 35 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists, with Middleton finishing with 31 points. The Celtics allow him to hound opposing guards all around the floor, and Smart has occasionally had some scoring outbursts. The Bucks star dropped 29 points and pulled down 11 rebounds the last time the teams met in the regular season, and the Celtics will need to find ways to slow down his bull rushes to the rim.
