Milwaukee Bucks vs. Boston Celtics - 5/8/19 NBA - Playoffs Pick, Odds, and Prediction

BOSTON MASSACHUSETTS- JANUARY 02 Marcus Smart #36 of the Boston Celtics reacts during the game against the Minnesota Timberwolves at TD Garden

Milwaukee outscored Boston by 21 in the third quarter of Game 2 and went on to win. Prepare the right way.

The Celtics needed more from Irving, and he knows it.

NBA players are judged by championships, MVP's and All-NBA teams. I mean, he shot 22 on the game.

"Like I said, everything has checked out fine".

The Celtics are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games, 20-5-2 ATS in their last 27 Wednesday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. I don't love big numbers in National Basketball Association playoff games, but the Celtics haven't given me much reason to get behind them. It happened with the series possibly ending in five games with a loss in Milwaukee on Wednesday, and it happened against the backdrop of Irving's impending free agency. With his team trailing by double-digits, about to drop Game 4 of a second-round playoff series, Irving headed to the locker room before any of his teammates.

The Boston Celtics need a victory here in order to save their season and force a game six on Friday.

Boston beat Milwaukee in seven games in the first round last year and went on to lose to LeBron James and the Cavaliers in seven games in last year's conference finals.

But the crowd was back on its feet, chanting "Let's Go Celtics!" midway through the third, when Horford made a pair of baskets around a three-pointer by Tatum to cut the deficit to five, 91-86 with 7:19 to play.

The Bucks went 27-14 on the road in the regular season, which tied them with the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors for the best road mark in the National Basketball Association. And, despite his own play, and that of his teammates, being not almost good enough through the past three games, he said he remains confident that the Celtics have what it takes to turn this series around. Bright young coach, but the bottom line is what he did to start out this season and what Danny Ainge did - because I can't believe that Brad Stevens did it on his own, considering the magician Danny Ainge's is proving to be as an executive - Danny Ainge definitely had a part to do with Gordon Hayward being inserted in that starting lineup. That's where we stand.

At the end of the day, Kyrie Irving wanted to prove that he could lead a team. The Celtics reserves finished with just 23 points between the two games.

Irving, who can become a free agent this summer, left the court to a lone fan shouting at him, "Don't leave!"

"The game was over", Irving said.
