NBA Playoffs 2018: Boston Celtics vs

NBA Playoffs 2018: Boston Celtics vs

Following their 112-96 loss in Game 7 of their first round series with the Boston Celtics on Saturday night, there were a number of great perspectives on the inconsistent season the Bucks experienced and the summer that lies ahead for the team, both from a local and national perspective.

With that, Brown needed to begin a slight walk-back Sunday, reminding his players that only being scheduled for three games in their comfortable Wells Fargo Center is not a postseason eviction notice.

That whole playoff series back in 2012 was a blow-for-blow kind of series between two playoff hopeful teams. I think (coach) Brett (Brown)'s terrific. Smart will be counted on offensively and defensively in this series, and his presence, along with the emergence of Terry Rozier (26 points in Game 7), will help lead Boston to a cover and possible upset of favored Philadelphia in Game 1. At 55-27, they were better than the 52-30 Sixers and, thus, won that home-court prize.

Philadelphia averaged just 95.3 points per game in four games against the Celtics during the regular season. He's looked every bit the part of a capable starting point guard in this league and has even shown superstar tendencies. Horford had 14 points and seven rebounds at the break, and Bledsoe had 12 points for the Bucks. The Sixers were 22-19 on the road. Meanwhile, veterans JJ Redick, Marco Belinelli, and Ersan Ilyasova provided some timely shooting all series long. "I've played against them in the playoff twice, in 2009 and 2010, and I still feel that they were as intense as any playoff games I have played in my career". I want to see the finished product. "That's what we'll all expect". For Miami in the playoffs, 18.6 percent of their offensive possessions started in transition, and while they were reasonably efficient in those moments, it was out of character. The Celtics are hoping to have guard Jaylen Brown back from a hamstring injury he sustained in the clincher against the Bucks, leaving him sidelined along with Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward.

The Celtics have been known to attack centers with unusual double-team rotations, which could be a challenge to Joel Embiid. Ben Simmons will certainly push the pace and we will try to keep up with them. Also, unlike Miami, Boston has an inside toughness that will make it more hard for Simmons to drive. They ranked 10th among the 16 playoff teams in defensive rating entering play Sunday. "And offensively, they have the ability to really bother you, because they can shoot threes". Rozier, in his third year, added eight rebounds and six assists, and Al Horford had 26 points and seven rebounds for Boston. After a missed three by Antoine Walker, AI sealed the win with 1.6 seconds to go by making two free-throws. "For us to win there, we have to be sharp in everything we do". Meanwhile, a combination of Marcus Smart, good rotations and rust seemed to limit the Sixers' shooters - after two quarters, Philly was just 3-for-15 from behind the arc.
