Boston Celtics

Boston Celtics have been performing in a quite mediocre fashion, finishing with 36-36 SU last year. They also won two out of three regular rounds against their current opponent Milwaukee.

This year, the team opened with 15-20 SU and progressed to dominate the defense reign mid-season. They were also named favorites in 22 matches, with Jayson Tatum leading with 28 points and 7.2 assists and Al Horford's 8.5 rebounds.

The injury report included point guard Marcus Smart who has been out since May 4. 

Milwaukee Bucks

Milwaukee Bucks started the season rather roughly. They opened this season with a 6-8 SU, posing a big gap from their success of 162-65 SU record last year.

However, the Bucks have been guarding the East’s No. 1 position in two out of the last three seasons and they have played excellently when healthy, that is, without the absence of considerable team players such as Jrue Holiday and especially the two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Due to injuries, Khris Middleton (knee) and George Hill (abdomen) are out of the game.
