Milwaukee Bucks (25-38) @ Boston Celtics (46-17)
Time: 6:00 pm EST
Preview: The Milwaukee Bucks have made a run towards the 8th position in the Eastern Conference with their two game winning streak. The Bucks are just a game behind both Charlotte and Indiana. However, we are betting on Celtics to win.
Milwaukee will take on the tough Boston Celtics on Sunday. The Bucks have been horrible on the road this season, winning just 9 of 31 games. Milwaukee, when playing against Eastern Conference foes have won 17 of 35 games. The Bucks are led in scoring by Brandon Jennings and his 16 points per game. Andrew Bogut is the top rebounder for Milwaukee, as he is ripping down more than 11 rebounds per game.
The Bucks went 46-36 last season, so this year has been a disappointment. For Boston, their two game losing streak has them just ½ game ahead of the Chicago Bulls for the top seed in the Eastern Conference.
The Celtics are good at home, winning 27 of 33 games, while also winning 30 of 38 games against Eastern Conference foes. The Celtics are led by Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen. Pierce is scoring 19 points per game, Kevin is grabbing 9.2 rebounds per game, and Rondo is dishing out 12 assists per game. Allen this season became the NBA’s all team leading three point shooter.
Our prediction for this game: Boston will snap their losing streak and come away with a big win. Celtics 95-80.
