As can be seen, the Celtics found a solution for all their Game 1 problems. They completely flipped the switch on Milwaukee and held them under 90 points. The biggest differences were in free-throws and 3-pointers. Firstly, the Bucks shot an abysmal 16.7% from deep and got in only three shots. Comparatively, Boston sank 20 3-pointers as they shot 46.5%. The Celtics came out blazing in the first half. Jaylen Brown went for 17 points alone in the 1st quarter. Things looked bad from the get-go for the Bucks. They were outscored 65-40 in the first half. After Boston took the lead, they never looked back. Milwaukee couldn’t catch them once. Furthermore, Giannis’ 28 points would look great if he wasn’t so inefficient. Even the Bucks’ free throws were limited to only 65.2% during the game. Let’s see the Game 3 predictions for the Bucks v Celtics as the series head to Milwaukee.
The four-day difference between Games 2 and 3 should give plenty of time for both teams to prepare and more importantly, analyze their mistakes. The Celtics were the favorites to win Game 2 but Milwaukee remains the experts’ pick to advance to the Conference Finals. Frankly, there weren’t any serious injuries in the previous games. Marcus Smart is injury listed but his status is day-to-day. We’re certain he’ll play in Game 3. This series is the closest one regarding the odds for the games. Funny enough, neither of the first two games was a close one. For the first time in the series, predictions favor Milwaukee for the Bucks v Celtics Game 3. Furthermore, the Bucks’ last regular-season home game was against the Celtics, which they won. As not much has changed since then, we’re expecting a close game with Milwaukee winning in the end.
