The Milwaukee Bucks are one win away from a place in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals.
The Milwaukee Bucks can secure a place in the Eastern Conference Finals by claiming a victory over the Boston Celtics in Wisconsin on Wednesday night (Bucks 2/9, Celtics 10/3 – Money Line).
The Bucks head into the contest at the Fiserv Forum boasting a 3-1 lead in the series following their 113-101 victory in Boston last time out.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was the star of the show for the Bucks in Game 4, contributing a series-high 39 points, and if he can maintain that form on Wednesday then Mike Budenholzer’s team are going to take some stopping.
Boston did win the opening match of the series 112-90, but that will feel like a long time ago now, with Kyrie Irving and co struggling to replicate the form they showed in thrashing the Indiana Pacers 4-0 in the opening round of the playoffs.
The night’s other playoff game will see reigning NBA champions Golden State Warriors look to bounce back against the Houston Rockets (Warriors 3/8, Rockets 21/10 – Money Line).
The Rockets have levelled up the series at 2-2 following back-to-back victories in Houston, but Game 5 will be back at the Oracle Arena and GSW will be desperate to make home advantage count.
James Harden has unsurprisingly been the driving force behind the Rockets’ recent resurgence, recording 143 points in the opening four games of the series, although GSW’s small forward Kevin Durant has outdone the reigning MVP, just, as he boasts one more point in the series to date.
Indeed, the winner of that personal dual on Wednesday could go a long way to deciding which team will take a 3-2 lead into Game Six of the series in Houston on Friday.
Odds subject to change.
