  • Giannis Antetokounmpo – Bucks

In the absence of Khris Middleton who is out due to an injury, the whole offensive load will be on Giannis. He will look to dominate the series from the start, as his physicality will be tough to handle for the Celtics.

  • Jayson Tatum – Celtics

Tatum is slowly transforming himself into a superstar. He has been playing like a top 5 player for the majority of the season, and he’ll like to continue it against the defending champions.

Boston is playing at home, and that gives them a huge advantage to win the 1st game of the series and assert a lead over the Milwaukee Bucks who are without their 2nd best player.

Prediction:

  • Boston Celtics to win the game.
