The Milwaukee Bucks are preparing to face the Boston Celtics for the second time this season.
Here are some key points you need to know:
Friday January 17, 12pm (AEDT)
Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee
TAB Friday Special – Giannis 15+ pts and 5+ boards at half time ($3.00)
Last time they met
Celtics 116 – Bucks 105
(October 30, 2019)
6-3 (Milwaukee) (since beginning of last season)
Keys to the game
Every Bucks player not named Giannis or Khris
The last time the Bucks and Celtics met, Giannis and Khris Middleton combined for 64 percent shooting but everyone else shot a combined 37 percent. Clearly, the rest of the Bucks will have to come to party in the rematch.
While the Celtics may well have problems locking down Giannis following the departure of Al Horford, the Bucks allowed Kemba Walker to drop 31/7/6 last time around and will need to better on Friday if they want to win.
