Rampant Bucks Are the Team to Beat After Domination of the Celtics

14 May 2019

The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Boston Celtics at Fiserv Forum on Wednesday night.

Brogdon was invaluable to Milwaukee this season, starting all 64 games in which he appeared and giving them crucial shooting and playmaking from the perimeter. Milwaukee eliminated Boston in game 5 the way the Celtics eliminated them a year ago - defense and good team play. The Celtics struggled down the stretch and were blown out multiple times with their star player Kyrie Irving collapsing under the pressure.

Stevens' team was arguably the most-disappointing team in the league this season.

And with such a smashing run to the conference finals to their credit, the Bucks are officially the team to beat in the run for the National Basketball Association title. He is eligible for free agency in the offseason, and his future is one of the major questions facing the Celtics this summer.

How hard the Celtics pursue him could be tied to what Irving decides to do this summer. "Giannis is known for intensity, a lot of charisma and I think this shirt encapsulates all that", said Michael Belot, Senior Vice President of the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Celtics continued their offensive woes in Game 4, shooting just 34 of 90 from the field and 9 of 41 from the arc. He was one of seven players that scored in double-figures for the Bucks. Khris Middleton posted 19 points while George Hill chipped in 16 off the bench.

"Not what we expected", Boston center Al Horford said. With the talent they have, they do have a chance to extend the series if they play together, play aggressively and don't just wave the white flag.

The Bucks are going to need that kind of balance in the next round, but they looked like a team that has grown a lot in the previous year - their time is now. "That's why I don't bitch and complain", Rozier said.
