So the Celtics can’t literally end the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Tuesday, but that can make it damn near...

The Celtics blew out the Bucks in Game 1 and held Giannis Antetokounmpo to 7-for-21 from the floor and just 4-for-15 from the paint. So naturally, the Bucks’ star says they don’t need to make any adjustments against Boston’s suffocating defense. “I don’t think we should change at all,” Giannis said...

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...
