The Bucks are still without Khris Middleton, who is going to miss the entire second round with the sprained MCL. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday are still a great 1-2 punch, and Milwaukee is getting good contributions from peripheral players like Grayson Allen and Bobby Portis. This team has confidence after last year’s title run and will be competitive even with Middleton out.

The Celtics look like title contenders after wallowing around .500 late in the regular season. Everything is clicking for this team on both ends of the floor at the right time, and Jayson Tatum has emerged as a superstar. Boston’s defense has already shut down Kevin Durant, but Antetokounmpo is a different beast. It’ll take everything in Boston’s arsenal to slow him down in this series.
