The Playoffs remain wide open and there are yet to be clear-cut favorites even at this point. In this game, the Eastern Conference classic rivals Milwaukee Bucks and the Boston Celtics will clash.

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

An important game

With the Celtics down one-two, the Bucks will look to extend their advantage to make sure they don’t have to cover too much ground. In the last game, it was one of those recurring tales, Jayson Tatum lost the plot, and shot a terrible percentage and that was a huge reason why the Celtics were unable to close the deal. The Celtics shot around 37% from the floor while being under 30% percent from the three-point line.

The Bucks captured the game in the third quarter, jumping up to a 12-point lead heading into the last quarter. The Celtics then pushed the Bucks back and with about 44 seconds to go, they even held a one-point advantage. Then Giannis and Jrue both made buckets to pull the Bucks ahead. Marcus Smart split his free throws and in the end, the Bucks ran away with the game.

The Bucks seized a 53-47 rebounds advantage as well which enabled the Bucks to have more shot attempts, although they made 14 compared to 28 free throws by the Celtics. The Celtics will need more from Jayson Tatum and he has had this tendency to drift away throughout the season. How will the Celtics respond down one-two?

Where to watch NBA Live Score?

Don’t you want to see two high-quality defensive-oriented teams jostling it out? In not the best piece of news for India-based NBA viewers, this match can’t be seen on streaming services JIO TV and Voot, the two designated streaming services for viewers in India. Then what can you do? Well, the most viable way is the NBA League Pass, where you can purchase the annual subscription (599 rupees per year) that provides you access to all live games while you also can catch the full game replay if you happen to miss the live stream. But if you want to watch just this battle, you can pay for just this game and forget about the annual subscription. To learn the scores, stats, and news, go to the official website of the NBA.
