The Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks (live stream info below) are respectively tied up at three games a piece with one final contest after the latter won Thursday.
The home team Bucks has won every contest so far in the series between them against the Celtics, so the latter team will be trying harder to unchain that trend in Game 6 in order to mark up a date with the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2018 NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals.
We are now witnessing the 129th Game 7 in the league history thanks to the Milwaukee Bucks winning Game 6 sending the series back to Boston Celtics on Saturday night. Last year scenario, the Bucks at home in an elimination contest, the teal lost to the Raptors. This year though, they made sure to not let that happen again, thanks to Giannis Antetokounmpo putting up 31 points and 14 rebounds. The Bucks also got some help from Khris Middleton and Malcolm Brogdon each putting up 16 points.
The Boston Celtics managed to secure the Game 5 with Marcus Smart back in the court after injury, giving the ball club the opportunity to knock off the Milwaukee Bucks with another win in Game 6. While the Celtics got Marcus Smart back tonight’s game from injury, and while he did provide the Celtics an extra power, the team’s offense couldn’t hit any shots late to complete their huge comeback.
After having defeated both games in Milwaukee, the Celtics returned home and earned a hard-fought 92-87 victory that featured the comeback of Marcus Smart to the active roster off a thumb injury. Smart put up a very Marcus Smart signature offense accumulating a total of nine points, five rebounds, four assists, three blocks, a steal and five turnovers in just 25 minutes.
Basically, Smart had one of the phenomenal plays of the Game 5 when he nearly turned the ball over, secured the loose ball and then slipped a pass to Al Horford for a layup that put the the Boston up seven points with 28.1 seconds remaining on the clock.
Horford had his second double-double of the Playoff series by putting up 22 points, 14 rebounds, three assists and a couple of blocks. For the series itself, the veteran basketballer is averaging 18.2 points, 8.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists while shooting 54.5 percent from the floor.
