BOSTON - Season Results

MILWAUKEE - Season Results
 Team StatsOpp Stats
COACH: Brad Stevens (seventh season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kemba Walker (25.6 ppg), G Gordon Hayward (11.5), F Jaylen Brown. (13.0), F Jayson Tatum (15.7), C Enes Kanter (13.7)
KEY LOSSES: G Kyrie Irving, F/C Al Horford, F Marcus Morris, G Terry Rozier.
KEY ADDITIONS: Walker, Kanter, G Romeo Langford, F Grant Williams, G Carsen Edwards.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: It starts with Walker, who jumped at the chance in free agency to join a perennial playoff team. Following Kyrie Irving's departure to Brooklyn, it will also give Walker the opportunity to do what Irving couldn't: lead the Celtics to an NBA Finals. He'll need help, though. And that will again put the spotlight on youngsters Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. Both took small steps backward last season as infighting and chemistry issues plagued the team. Now, both will have key roles, much like they did two seasons ago when Irving missed the playoffs and they helped get the team to the Eastern Conference finals. It's an especially big year for Brown. The Celtics have until Oct. 21 to decide whether to extend his contract for another season or let him become a restricted free agent next summer.
OUTLOOK: The Celtics are going to have to tweak their style of play a little without Irving or Horford. Irving was their chief scorer and Horford played a huge role facilitating offense in the half court as well as on defense. Kanter is a big man that can run, which should fit in nicely with the up-tempo style this athletic roster is built for. Whether this team is ultimately able to be a threat to win the East will depend on how well Walker leads and if the starting unit gets enough support from its youthful group of reserves.
MILWAUKEE: LAST SEASON: 60-22, best record in the NBA during the regular season, lost to Toronto in six games in the Eastern Conference finals.
COACH: Mike Budenholzer (second season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Eric Bledsoe (15.9 ppg), G Wesley Matthews (12.2 ppg), F Khris Middleton (18.3 ppg), F Giannis Antetokounmpo (27.7 ppg), C Brook Lopez (12.5 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G Malcolm Brogdon, F Nikola Mirotic, G Tony Snell.
KEY ADDITIONS: Matthews, C Robin Lopez, G Kyle Korver, F Dragan Bender, F Thanasis Antetokounmpo. PLAYER TO WATCH: Giannis Antetokounmpo. Antetokounmpo had the best season of his career a season ago en route to earning NBA MVP. He was outplayed by Kawhi Leonard in the Eastern Conference finals. Now, in his seventh season, how will Antetokounmpo improve his game offensively as he looks to take the Bucks to the finals and capture the first NBA title for the franchise since 1971?
OUTLOOK: Expectations have never been higher for the Bucks. A season after winning MVP, Coach of the Year (Budenholzer) and Executive of the Year (GM Jon Horst), Milwaukee enters this season without former Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon, one of only eight players in NBA history in the 50-40-90 club. The Bucks lost Brogdon to free agency, but managed to keep their core of Bledsoe, Lopez, Middleton and Antetokounmpo together. With both Leonard and LeBron James now out west, anything less than a conference finals appearance will be deemed a failure in Milwaukee.
Bucks, Celtics collide in Eastern Conference headliner

The Milwaukee Bucks boasted the NBA's best record at 53-12 before the league's season was interrupted in March due to concerns surrounding COVID-19.

Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks bid to shake off the rust accumulated following a 4 1/2-month absence on Friday when they "host" the Boston Celtics (43-21) near Orlando.

Antetokounmpo and company also will need to acclimate themselves to a different set of circumstances than when they last played in March. That being, residing in a bubble and competing without a live audience watching their every move.

"Doesn't matter what happens outside the lines, you lose yourself in the game," Antetokounmpo said. "As we play more, we'll get used to it."

The Bucks likely will have time to adjust when they begin an eight-game stretch during the NBA's 22-team restart. Milwaukee holds a comfortable 6 1/2-game lead over second-place Toronto, while Boston resides three games behind the Raptors and 2 1/2 in front of fourth-place Miami.

Milwaukee might need the cushion without Eric Bledsoe and Pat Connaughton, both of whom tested positive for COVID-19 and were late arrivals to Florida. Head coach Mike Budenholzer said both players will miss Friday's game and it was still unknown when either player will be active for the Bucks.

Antetokounmpo remains on the fast track toward becoming the NBA's first back-to-back MVP since Stephen Curry in 2015-16. The 25-year-old averaged a robust 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game this season.

Antetokounmpo collected 32 points and 17 rebounds and fellow All-Star Khris Middleton added 23 points in Milwaukee's 128-123 victory over Boston on Jan. 16. Middleton also had 26 points in the Bucks' 116-105 setback to the Celtics on Oct. 30.

All-Star guard Kemba Walker excelled in both contests for Boston, scoring 21 of 32 points in the second half of the October meeting before erupting for 40 in the January tilt. Walker (21.2 points per game) likely will see his minutes monitored as he nurses a sore left knee that has lingered since the start of the calendar year.

Jayson Tatum (23.6 points, 7.1 rebounds) aims to regain his hot hand, as he recorded 30 or more points in six of his final eight games before the league was paused in March. Jaylen Brown (20.4), Gordon Hayward (17.3) and Marcus Smart (13.5) are also averaging double-digit point totals for the Celtics.

"Just like in a fight, you get your head hit a few times, you're going to change it up and start protecting your body from those head shots," Smart said as his team gets ready for games that count. "We're trying to put the fire under our butts and get us back to that urgency we need."

Milwaukee was still working out the kinks in Monday's scrimmage, a 124-103 setback to New Orleans.

While how much stock should be placed in that decision is up for debate, the Bucks know they have bigger fish to fry if they wish to capture their first NBA title since 1971.

"Obviously losing is a bad thing, but I think it's going to be good just moving forward just to know we have to play at our high level, it doesn't matter who we ," forward Ersan Ilyasova said. "I think this is one of those games, like, a wake-up call for us. We're here for one reason, obviously, to win a championship."
