On Monday night, Al Horford played the best playoff game of his long career and was most credited for Boston Celtics fourth quarter comeback and victory in Milwaukee tying this series at 2-2. The rest of starting five, including Jason Tatum, were at a very high level also. Tatum struggled in the first three games against the Bucks’s defense but found his game on Monday. The Celtics were the NBA best defense in the regular season, and especially raised the level of intensity after the All-Stars break. In the last game, Robert Williams was unable to play due to a knee injury, but despite that, the Celtics found a way to win. Along with Marcus Smart, Williams is the most important defensive player in Ime Udoka system and it would be very important for this team if Williams is on the floor in game number five. This generation of Celtics made around Tatum and Brown was close to NBA finals in two occasions, but they were stopped both times.
We stormed back against the Bucks with a record-setting fourth quarter Monday night, and now we’re heading home with the series all tied up for Game 5.https://t.co/czhKQFnr3g

Giannis Antetokounmpo was MVP of the NBA league in 2019 and 2020, however, the Milwaukee Bucks failed to go all the way in those seasons. As the time for signing a new contract approached, there were fears that the Greek Freak might leave Milwaukee, but that did not happen. In December 2020, he signed a five-year contract, and six months later came what everyone had dreamed of. Head coach Mike Budenholzer was in the hot seat and was expected to be fired if the Bucks were knocked out by the Brooklyn Nets in Eastern Conference Semifinals. However, Kevin Durant stepped on the three-point line in the famous seventh game. Bucks beat the Nets in overtime and two series later they won the NBA title eliminating the first Atlanta Hawks and the Phoenix Suns. This year, the reigning champions entered the playoffs from the third position in the East, and the impression is that they are operating from the background. That role suits them well and it won’t be a sensation if they reach the NBA finals again. They lost home-court advantage on Monday night, but they showed in the past that they know how to win in Boston.
“We’re looking forward to game 5 on the road. We’ve been there before. We’ve got to do our best.”

After four games in Eastern Conference Semifinals, the score is tied (2-2). These teams have played four times in the regular season and the score was also 2-2, so Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks have played a total of eight times this season and overall H2H is 4-4.
Robert Williams didn’t play in game number four and he is questionable for the fifth game. All other players are available for coach Udoka. Khris Middleton won’t play for the Bucks in this series and he could come back only if the Bucks reach Conference Finals or NBA Finals.
Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks Prediction
Looking at the first four games, Boston Celtics showed more than Milwaukee Bucks. This game will probably be crucial for this series and it is hard to believe that the Celtics will allow losing at home after achieving a big win in Milwaukee.
Prediction: Boston Celtics -4HC
