Milwaukee Bucks -1.5

Boston C Robert Williams (sore left knee) has missed consecutive games and is listed as questionable for this elimination game. The Celtics missed a golden opportunity to take control of this series and now must go on the road to keep their season alive. Look for Giannis and the Bucks to get the job done at home. Final Score Prediction, Milwaukee Bucks win 108-101.
