NBA Playoffs: Position-By-Position Breakdown Of Milwaukee Bucks-Boston Celtics

It also would be relatively surprising despite Boston's obvious talent, as Milwaukee won 60 games while finishing the regular season with the East's No. 1 seed and looked as unsafe as ever in its first-round sweep of the Detroit Pistons.

The Milwaukee Bucks will enter their second-round National Basketball Association playoff series with the Boston Celtics as the favorites, but Skip Bayless believes Kyrie Irving and Co. will pull off the upset.

It marked their first series victory in 18 years, when Antetokounmpo was just six. "It's a good night for the Bucks", said Mike Budenholzer.

"It's definitely insane", he told a news conference.

Giannis Antetokounmpo made only 14 points on 38.5 percent shooting in Game 3, and he obviously came out like a player on a mission right from the opening frame of Game 4. The Bucks entered the postseason as the top seed in the East while the Celtics entered the playoffs as the fourth-seed in the Eastern Conference.

The lanky defense of the Bucks also figures to give Celtics superstar Kyrie Irving some issues in scoring at the rim, which could necessitate Boston sharing the ball more than they did in the first round in order to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.

"Even when we faced adversity and when they were up, they were taking the leads, we weren't playing our best, I think we were able to keep fighting, keep pushing as a group and it feels good to win our first playoff series together".
