Boston Celtics at Milwaukee Bucks (-1, 209.5)
Game 4: Bucks lead 2-1
Milwaukee might be the one with the series lead here, but the Bucks have hardly separated themselves in a hard-fought series. They have only averaged 100.7 points per 100 possessions in non-garbage time minutes, and through three games they own a -2.4 net rating in this series. That is not to say that Boston is the clear favorite going forward in this series. The Celtics might have a positive net rating through three games, but they have only put up 103.1 points per 100 possessions and Jayson Tatum has largely been contained by the Bucks’ defense (20.0 points per game, 34.8% shooting from the floor). There is barely an edge to be had for either team in this series.
