In the first game of an NBA on TNT playoff doubleheader, the Milwaukeee Bucks will invade TD Garden to take on the Boston Celtics. The third-seeded Bucks finished the regular season seven games above .500 on the road and lead the postseason in defensive efficiency. On Monday, Milwaukee missed 18 of their 27 three-point attempts and shot just 42 percent overall during a 116-108 home loss.

All-Star F Giannis Antetokounmpo led all scorers with 34 points on 14-for-32 shooting and pulled down 18 boards. Jrue Holiday added 16 points, nine assists, and seven rebounds for the Bucks.

The Boston Celtics won 28 of their 41 home games during the regular season and are emerging as legitimate NBA title contenders. During their Game Four victory, Boston outscored Milwaukee 43-28 in the fourth quarter. The second-seeded Celtics assisted on 25 of their 42 made field goals and shot 50 percent overall.

Al Horford and Jayson Tatum led Boston with 30 points apiece on a combined 22-for-38 from the field. Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown contributed 18 points each for the Celtics.

UNDER 214.5

Boston C Robert Williams (sore left knee) did not play in Monday’s victory and is listed as questionable for this game. The Celtics took back the momentum in this series and I like their chances to take a 3-2 lead at home. Look for this game to stay under the total. Final Score Prediction, Boston Celtics win 105-99.
