In game number five, the Milwaukee Bucks were 14 points behind at the start of the fourth quarter and the Boston Celtics were really close to take a 3-2 lead in this series. However, the reigning NBA champions did not give up and they made a big comeback. In the end, Bucks won 110:107. Jrue Holiday and Wesley Matthews hit several very important shots in the fourth quarter, while Giannis Antetokounmpo was unstoppable through entire game. The Bucks now have a great situation. They are leading 3-2 in Conference Seminfals and if they win at home in game number six, they will reach a place in another Eastern Conference Finals. Head coach Mike Budenholzer has shortened the rotation to eight players, and it is certain that Khris Middleton will not return until the end of this series, and he should be available sometime during the Conference Finals if the Bucks are there. We must not forget Bobby Portis, who probably decided fifth game in favor of the Bucks with a few very important rebounds.

The Boston Celtics were very close to winning game number five. The Bucks looked like a shaken boxer in the fourth quarter, but the Celtics failed to deliver a decisive knock-out which cost them dearly in the end. Luckily for them, this series is not over yet but they will have to win in Milwaukee to take this Eastern Conference Semifinals to the decisive seventh game that would be played in TD Garden. Offensively, the Celtics looked good. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum played at a high level, but the main thing that ruled in Bucks favor were offensive rebounds. The Bucks had 17 and the Celtics had only 5 offensive rebounds and that’s the difference that ultimately decided the winner. Robert Williams did not play in the fifth game which greatly contributed to the Bucks dominating in the paint. Al Horford and Daniel Thies have not been able to cope with Portis and Antetokounmpo and if Williams does not play in game number six, head coach Ime Udoka will have to find a way to reduce the damage in rebounding.

After five games in this series, the Milwaukee Bucks lead 3-2 and just one win separates them from Eastern Conference Finals. The Bucks and Celtics have played against each other four times in the regular season and H2H was 2-2 at the time, so the overall H2H this season is 5-4 for the Bucks.
Khris Middleton isn’t ruled out for game number six, but is unlikely that he will play. Other players are available for coach Budenholzer and Milwaukee Bucks. Robert Williams is questionable for Boston Celtics and there is optimism that he could play in this game.
Milwaukee Bucks vs. Boston Celtics Prediction
The Bucks showed a championship mentality in game number five, which was crucial for them. After such a big win, it’s really hard to believe that they will allow the Celtics to win at Milwaukee and return the series to Boston.
