Jayson Tatum (knee soreness) missed last night’s game and the Boston Celtics lost at home to the Detroit Pistons (116-103). The absence of their star forward clearly played a role in their deficiencies on both ends of the court. It’ll be worth monitoring his status leading up to this epic Eastern Conference battle, especially since: 

  • The Bucks have gone a 19-2 straight-up at home (T-2nd in NBA).

Will MVP frontrunner Giannis Antetokounmpo and Milwaukee be able to win (and cover) against Boston or will the Celtics come through on the road? It's worth noting that the Celtics won the first meeting against the Bucks in Boston by the score of 115-106.
