Milwaukee Bucks vs. Boston Celtics
Saturday April 28, 8 PM EST TD Garden Boston, MA
The Bucks beat the Celtics 97-86 at home in Game 6 where they were legit on both ends of the floor shooting 50.7% from the field and holding Boston to 37% shooting.
After going for 16 points in Game 5 Giannis Antetokounmpo came up big in Game 6 going for 31 points on 13/23 shooting and grabbing 14 rebounds. The Celtics have to keep tabs on him and fellow FW Khris Middleton, who went for 16 points on 7/8 shooting in Game 6.
It is pretty easy for the Celtics in Game 6, as they have to shoot the rock better and step up on defense. Jayson Tatum, Terry Rozier, and Jaylen Brown combined for 52 points in Game 6, but only combined to shoot 17/46 from the floor.
The home team has won every game in this series and that will continue in Game 7 with the Celtics winning at home and closing out the series.
New Orleans Pelicans vs. Golden State Warriors
Saturday April 28, 10:30 PM EST ORACLE Arena Oakland, CA
Not only are the Pelicans confident after their surprising sweep of the Blazers in the first round of the playoffs, but they also do not have to face Stephen Curry, who is still out with an injury.
There may be a lot of offensive fireworks in this series opener, as the Warriors were the highest scoring team in the regular season and the Pelicans averaged 120.3 ppg in the last three games of their series with Portland.
Anthony Davis was a monster in the Blazers series going for a double-double in all four games and averaged 33 ppg in the series. Jrue Holiday also had a great series and put up 41 points in closing out the series in Game 4.
Curry will be missed by Golden State, but they still have three other stars in Kevin Durant, Klay Thomson, and Draymond Green, who combined for 66 points in the Game 5 win over the Spurs.
Golden State has the scoring, but their big men have to step on defense against Davis in this series and also keep Holiday and the other players for New Orleans from scoring big.
Even without Curry the other stars will step up for the Warriors, who will take Game 1 at home.
