Game #1 this weekend? You have to wonder if this will be on ABC.

(wow that was fast, if PHX wins 'morrow, hope they are just as quick in scheduling)

No Middleton is a big blow for Milwaukee. He typically puts up points against the C's.

That said, this series comes down to:
  • Slowing down Giannis (but the C's actually have the horses to do it)
  • Which team will hit their 3's
Boston is a streaky shooting team... but they've been hitting their shots better recently, and the Bucks kinda give up the 3-ball as a defensive philosophy. We just gotta hit the open shots.

Celtics in 6.

Everyone seems to think Milwaukee having Middleton out is a pretty big deal... other than you, of course.

There is a 3 day rest between game 2 and 3. I'll be stunned if he isn't available for game 3.

Are you saying there is absolutely no way for Milwaukee to win 1 of the first 2 in Boston? Last i checked, the best player in the league is still playing. Middleton is a good player but lets quit acting like he is some superstar. People on here continue to talk like him missing is the same as giannis being out

The only thing that gives me some pause here is the reality that the Nets may not have been anywhere close to the team we thought they were and that’s a real possibility at this point.

If Middleton is back by game 5 then this is the bucks series. I think with or without him this is 2-2 after 4 games. If he's out for the series then it is a toss up

Certainly possible. Hard to believe he would be 100%, though... MCL's are tricky.

No, I'm not saying that. That would be ridiculous.

Either of these teams can steal a road game on any given night.

Middleton is an all-star caliber player... him being out is a big deal.

I haven't seen anyone suggest Middleton = Giannis... again, that would be ridiculous.

Khris being out gonna make it easier to contain Giannis, though... no doubt... Celtics defense light years ahead of the "defense" that the Bulls were putting forward.

We can't just ignore that the bucks 3 best games of the bulls series came without him. Could have easily been down 2-0. Not saying that's all on him but we can't deny this
