Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks – NBA Quarterfinals Game 2 – 16h00 05/03/2022 [PT]: The level of the defending champion.
It seemed that the Wisconsin Deer would have difficulty encountering the strongest defense in the NBA. But what happened at TD Garden in game 1 surprised the fans. Paint of the Bucks becomes invincible to Giannis and Lopez. Tatum and Brown could hardly penetrate this area to score and the Celtics failed to be obvious. The chance for Clover to balance in Game 2 is also not high, when Smart may get injured and be sidelined.
Boston Celtics easily overcame Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the NBA Playoffs with a final score of 4-0, after completely destroying KD – Irving. With such strength, no one thinks Boston Celtics can have a difficult time against the Bucks without Khris Middleton. It should be added that in this year’s season, the Deer also have to face many injuries, but whenever needed, the supporting factors shine. Grayson Allen and Portis are two big contributors.
