What Brad Stevens is seeing from Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks is nothing new to him. He saw this coming. As one of the league's leading superstar, Antetokounmpo continues to prove why he's a leading MVP candidate and why he's the most talented player in the Eastern Conference Semifinals...

The Celtics didn't want to pin Game 3's loss to the Bucks on the officials. They did the best they could to hide their frustration with how the game was called Friday night. However, following their 123-116 loss, the topic was brought up to Kyrie Irving during his postgame press conference and the...

MILWAUKEE -- For a team that suffered from a 21-point loss against the Bucks in Game 2 of their best-of-7 series, the Celtics seemed rather breezy throughout their postgame interviews. After becoming the only undefeated team in the playoffs (4-0), Boston dropped its first game against the Bucks in...

Game 2 is an absolute must-win for the Milwaukee Bucks. They’ve already lost home-court advantage and a loss on Tuesday creates serious potential for a sweep, as crazy as that may sound. So the Celtics can’t literally end the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Tuesday, but that can make it damn near...

MILWAUKEE -- Head coach Brad Stevens understands the likelihood of seeing Giannis Antetokounmpo shoot 33.3 percent from the floor like he did Sunday afternoon against the Celtics, is highly improbable.

For all the problems Giannis Antetokounmpo presents on the offensive end, as well as Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon (if he’s cleared to play), there’s still the matter of Milwaukee’s defensive presence. In their last meeting with the Celtics, the Bucks held Boston under 100...

INDIANAPOLIS -- When Kyrie Irving was seen on the bench getting his right hand checked out just before halftime in Game 2 of the Celtics' best-of-7 series against the Pacers, it didn't seem like a big deal at the time.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Brad Stevens has never been the kind of head coach to stick with one rotation throughout the course of a best-of-7 series. He likes to read how each game plays itself out and call shots on the fly. In the past, Stevens has surprised us with starting lineups and in-game changes...

Had Brad Stevens not pulled the Celtics impact players in the closing minutes of Game 1 the Pacers might have set a new record for fewest points scored in the second half of an NBA playoff game. The Pacers mustered up 29, so the Utah Jazz still hold the record with 23 second-half points in Game 3...

An Indiana Pacers team without Victor Oladipo can only create so many issues for the Boston Celtics in a one-and-done matchup. If you turn the affair into a seven-game series and provide the Celtics home-court advantage, then a Boston series win becomes more of a lock than Captain America dying at...
