Milwaukee Bucks vs. Boston Celtics
Tuesday April 24, 7:00 PM EST at TD Garden Boston, MA
The Bucks evened their series with the Celtics, winning Game 4 at home, 104-102. The game was back-and-forth and Milwaukee only won by two, even though they shot 52.1% from the floor and held Boston to 41.4% shooting. The reason the game was close is that the Celtics had 16 offensive rebounds, while the Bucks only had two.
In Game 5 Boston has to play better defence on the duo of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton, who in Game 4 combined for 50 points and each shot over 50% from the floor.
Jaylen Brown was the high scorer for Boston in Game 4, going for 34 points with four other players going for double figures. The Celtics’ defence has been poor in the last two games of the series, allowing the Bucks to shoot over 52% in each game.
Boston lit up the Bucks for 120 and 113 points in the first two games in Boston, but in the two games in Milwaukee they only scored 92 and 102 points.
The Celtics are a different team at home and that team will show up in this game. Like Game 4, Game 5 will be a close one, but unlike Game 4 Boston will come out with the win and head back to Milwaukee looking to close out the series.
Miami Heat vs. Philadelphia 76ers
Tuesday April 24, 8:00 PM EST at Wells Fargo Center Philadelphia, PA
After stealing Game 2 in Philly, the Heat lost the next two games in South Beach and have their backs against the wall in the series, down 3-1.
The 76ers have won the last two games with star Joel Embiid back and they won Game 4 106-102, even though he was only 2/11 from the floor for 14 points and had eight turnovers.
The Heat lost Game 4 even though they shot a better FG%, a better 3-pt FG%, and had fewer turnovers. One of the main reasons was because they only shot 52% from the free throw line.
The 76ers used a balanced attack in Game 4 with every starter and two reserves going for double figures.
Dwayne Wade and the Heat have to hit their free throws and end the game better than they did in the Game 4 loss where they were outscored by eight points only putting up 19 points.
The Heat had their chances in Game 4, but blew them and that will cost them, big time. Back in Philly the 76ers will easily win this game and close out the series.
