Celtics vs Bucks: Game 6 Prediction, picks, tv channel, live stream, how to watch NBA playoffs online

After a comeback win in Game 5, the Milwaukee Bucks will look to end their streak with the Boston Celtics in Game 6 Friday night while the Celtics look to extend their season and force a crucial Game 7 in Boston. The Bucks outplayed the Celtics 33-21 in the fourth quarter of Game 5 to earn the 110-107 win.

Like he has all streaks, Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way for the Bucks with 40 points and 11 rebounds, and he got some too great help from Jrue Holiday at both ends of the floor. On the other hand, Jayson Tatum led the Celtics with 34 points and six rebounds, and Jaylen Brown added 26 points, eight rebounds and six assists, but ultimately their performance fell short. The Celtics will need a full team effort in Game 6 if they are to continue playing past Friday night.

Here’s everything you need to know about Game 6 between Boston and Milwaukee.

storylines

Celts: Robert Williams’ health is a big question for Boston ahead of Game 6. Williams was a late Game 4 scratch with knee pain, and he was also ruled out of Game 5. His ability to protect the pants would have certainly helped Boston out of the last game’s stretch. Williams is listed as a questionable for Game 6, and his final status will likely be determined just before the tip.

Here’s what Celtics coach Ime Udoka had to say about Williams’ status on Thursday: “We’re waiting to hear how he feels. It’s really a pain issue. The swelling is gone, it’s just a matter of general pain. I think technically you’ll have that after a few surgeries, regardless of four to six [weeks] window or he comes back after three and a half weeks. So as you go through his rehab process, he’ll have a day when he’s in a little more pain and then calms down.

If Williams is ultimately able to leave, he will be another weapon the Celtics will have in their defensive arsenal.

dollar: Celtics all-star forward Jayson Tatum’s solid defense will continue to be key for the Bucks in this series. Tatum had 34 points in Game 5, but it wasn’t efficient (he shot 12 of 29 from the floor), and overall Milwaukee did a solid job of making life difficult for him. Tatum has shot 50 percent off the field in just one of the five games in the series so far, and he was awarded just 10 total points in Game 3 — a contest the Bucks won. Tatum is obviously central to Boston’s success on offense. So if the Bucks can keep giving him a hard time, they’ll give themselves a solid chance to move forward.

forecast

Closeout games are particularly difficult, especially against a team as talented as the Celtics. After missing an opportunity in Game 5, rest assured that the Celtics are motivated and eager to recover and extend their season. So far, no team has won two games in a row in this series and this trend will continue. Choose: Celts +1.5
