Analysis
Root Reserve—-Boston The Celtics let victory slip through their grasp in a devastating collapse at the end of Game 5, before ultimately suffering a 110-107 defeat at TD Garden. Now they must regroup in a hurry or their season will end on Friday night. With so many twists and turns already in this riveting series, expect to see a few more down the stretch in Game 6. Momentum has been fleeting in this series so even though the Bucks hold the upperhand right now, that can change on a dime. Look for Boston to continue their hot shooting over the past two games and convert at a high level from the field. In Game 5 the Celtics shot well from the field and struggled from beyond the arc, while the Bucks did the exact opposite, actually converting better from beyond the three-point line than from inside the arc. Expect Boston's elite defense that concedes below 34% from long range to tighten up and chase Bucks shooters off the three-point line. Look for the Bucks to struggle from the field once again but hit fewer bail-out threes this time around. The Celtics have limited the #3 offense in the NBA to below 102 points per game in this series and will do so again with their backs to the wall. Boston has played excellently in this spot going 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven games as an underdog and 5-0-1 in their last six at Milwaukee. The Bucks on the other hand are just 1-6-1 in their last eight games as a home favorite. These two teams have been evenly matched every step of the way so far, Boston will spoil the home festivities and force a Game 7.
