Boston Celtics at Milwaukee Bucks (-1.5, 212)
Game 6: Bucks lead 3-2
As he is one to do, Mike Budenholzer made an adjustment somewhat late in the game, but it was successful and it has Milwaukee in the driver’s seat of this series. Budenholzer decided to trust his big lineup down the stretch of Game 5 and kept Bobby Portis in to close out against Boston. The result was the Bucks posting a + 48.0 net rating in the quarter while killing the Celtics on the glass by grabbing seven offensive rebounds and 66.7% of all available rebounds in the quarter. Jrue Holiday’s defensive highlights will be remembered, but it was Milwaukee’s size that won the day, and it is now up to Boston to adjust their gameplan heading into an elimination setting.
