Celtics Find a Way

Before the series started, many NBA experts thought that the Celtics would not be able to win without Kyrie Irving. The Celtics did have lapses on offense that showed just how much they miss Kyrie, but they came together as a team to put up points. The Celtics had four players that scored 20 or more led by Al Horford who had 24 points. Jayson Tatum had 19 points and played crucial defense down the stretch. The Bucks had their best players foul out and they have to find a way to change things up in the second game of the series.

The Celtics proved that they could contain and frustrate Giannis Antetokounmpo.  They also proved that they could weather any storm and that Brad Stevens is easily the difference maker on the sidelines. The Celtics are 32-17-2 against the spread (ATS) with one day off, while the Bucks are just 17-28- 2 ATS on the season. The Bucks also struggle after a loss posting a 16-26-2 ATS record on the season. The Bucks have now lost four of the last six games against the spread and they will lose another game in Boston to go down 2-0 in the series.

In game two, bet on the Celtics (-3) over the Bucks
