NBA Playoffs Betting Odds: Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks Game 3 Recap

NBA Playoffs Betting Odds: Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks Game 3 Recap

Dellavedova entered the game after Eric Bledsoe picked up two early fouls and gave the Celtics trouble with his feisty on-the-ball defense, while Parker scored 17 points on 7-for-12 shooting. Game 4 is Sunday in Washington, where the Wizards have won seven straight playoff games.

The Bucks led 27-12 after the first quarter and cruised the rest of the way.

The Victorian point guard aggressively went after the Celtics' guards Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier and the Bucks went on a 22-6 run. He poured in 14 points and spaced the floor by hitting three of his four 3-point attempts.

The Celtics had anticipated playing in Milwaukee would be tough.

They returned to their careless ways from the second quarter of Game 1, except that that malady continued through the game last night with 18 turnovers, converted by the Bucks for 20 points. He almost achieved a triple-double in each game too, suggesting that he may really look to take over Game 3 and lead the Bucks to a big home victory. In a stark contrast to how the teams looked at the TD Garden, Boston was now the group who seemed checked out and Milwaukee was the group who seemed checked in.

When the third quarter rolled around, the Celtics had already committed 13 turnovers, compared to the Bucks' six. The Bucks never saw their lead drop below double digits for the final 39 plus minutes of the contest as they overwhelmed the Celtics. Starting center John Henson was unavailable for the game due to a back issue, so the Bucks had to go with Tyler Zeller.

Boston being banged up caught up with them in Game 3 and it's possible the breakneck pace they were playing in the first two games took a toll as well.

On the night, Knris Middleton scored a game-high 23 points. The Bucks easily covered the spread as 4.5-point favorites, and the game went over the total of 206 points. Giannis Antetokounmpo added a quiet 19 points.

Maker finished with a personal playoff high 14 points, including three three-pointers, five blocks and five rebounds in 24 minutes. Until Boston shows they can slow Milwaukee's offense, you have to ride with the hosts here.
