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...

Khris Middleton drilled seven three-pointers in a game once during the 2018-19 regular season. He did so against the New York Knicks. That alone sums up how things went on the defensive end for Boston in the 123-102 loss to the Bucks on Tuesday. As much as the Bucks said they didn’t need to make...

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...

Prior to Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer told reporters the long layoff between series wasn’t ideal for anyone. He may want to consider only speaking on behalf of his own team going forward. Based on what we saw in the Celtics 112-90 win, Boston took...

The Celtics-Bucks Eastern Conference Semifinals matchup is set to start, with top-seeded Milwaukee still the favorite to win the series. Having arguably the best player in the NBA from the 2018-19 season certainly helps the Bucks’ chances. But this series won’t be anything like either team’s first-...

The Pacers desperately needed a win in Game 3 and approached contest accordingly, from start to finish. That still wasn’t enough to knock off the Celtics, who matched Indiana’s intensity throughout, taking Game 3 104-96 on the road. With the exception of the Pacers’ response in the second quarter...
