The Boston Celtics will take on the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round for the right to face the Philadelphia 76ers or the Miami Heat in round two. Optimism, because this team added an incredible amount of talent this offseason including All-Stars Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward. But in addition to Hayward, the Celtics will be without Irving, Marcus Smart and reserve center Daniel Theis. Although injuries have made life incredibly hard for the Celtics of late, they've continued to perform well, and closed out a very impressive season with a 55-win total.
The final minutes of regulation were all over the place, with both teams trading huge three-pointers, before Khris Middleton sent it into OT, with the biggest shot of the day. The Celtics can not get complacent, but must push as if they were the underdog.

He told a pre-match press conference: " Malaga are bottom and maybe they don't deserve to be there. It's going to be hard , but we're going there to win and they are going to make the most of it".
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.
Whether they can do that remains to be seen, in part because Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo may have something to say about it.
