Celtic's bench vs Bucks bench

I'm sure the Bucks will have a good bench game in this series, but, game #1 Stevens was making the lineup calls and the Bucks coaches were just reacting three minutes later.

Bucks will shoot far better tonight, but, man for man? Bucks are going to have to pick it up quite a bit.

All the pressure is on the Bucks.  Take advantage of that by drawing some charges and forcing bad shots.  Continue to protect the 3-pt line while also helping on Giannis.  Not easy to do both, but they did it in the 1st game.

Agreed. All the pressure is on the Bucks. If they lose this game, they lose the faith in themselves and are in a big 2-0 hole heading to Boston for the next 2 games.

I think the Celtics recognize the importance of this game tonight and are going to come out focused, poised, and intense.

Look for tatum and Irving to assert their dominance in the game offensively, and for Brown and Horford to continue to glue the team together with smart defensive plays and opportunistic offensive attacks.

  Bad Ref Alert
-  Mark Davis is the lead referee in this game and in an LA Times survey in 2016, players and coaches voted him one of the worst referees in the league so he may very well be an X-factor.  Celtics fans may remember him as the ref that Rajon Rondo threw the ball at to get ejected.   Here are a couple of quotes from the article about Davis:
Hes cool as they come, but hes so arrogant, one player said. He instigates things sometimes. Marc will go back at a player. He forgets that hes talking to another man. Dont challenge a mans manhood. Now you are going too far.Marc Davis is hands down the worst, a player said. He acts likes hes your friend, but hell just screw you. Hell screw you and hell get the biggest attitude about it.
Davis' home W/L record this season is 35-32 so he isn't influenced by the home crowd.  The Celtics are 7-3 in their last 10 games with Davis while the Bucks are 3-7 in their last 10 with Davis.

Double Bad Ref Alert: And, Marc Davis isn't the only bad ref calling this game.  Tony Brothers, who is widely known as one of the worst refs in the league.  Pretty much every team cringes when they see him calling a game.   He was voted the worst ref in the league by 24.5 of the players in their recent survey.  With Brothers, you never know what you will get.  Sometimes he calls everything on both teams.  Sometimes he lets both teams play.  And, sometimes he calls a game one sided for one of the teams.  Hopefully we get the Tony Brothers that lets them play both ways in this game.
Brothers home W/L record is 42-23.  The Celtics are 7-3 in their last 10 games with Brothers while the Bucks are 4-6 in their last 10.

The third ref, Tom Washington,  can be good or bad depending on the game but mostly he lets them play and there isn't a lot of controversy around him either.  His home W/L record this season is 35-28.  The Celtics are 7-3 in their last 10 games with him while the Bucks are 8-2 in their last 10.

Yeah, these data resoundingly suggest that the bucks should be the ones concerned.  Either way I don't care.  Be greedy and take care of business.  Don't be satisfied with taking just one game.

Key to winning this game is locking down Khris Middleton from start to end. He had 25ppg last year against Boston, and in Game 1 of this series only 16 points.

Let Giannis have his way, their secret weapon is Middleton.

  That's according to Covers.com.  That is our last 10 games overall.  Someone else posted a stat of 1-8 in playoff games - I'm not sure about that.

But since we're all feeling doom and gloom tonight, Kyrie Irving is 9-0 all-time against Mike Budenholzer's teams in the playoffs.
