The 2022 Playoffs are in full flow. With Round 1 of the postseason almost wrapping up, fans are excited for the upcoming fixtures that will take place in the Semifinals.
One of the most anticipated battles in the Eastern Conference will be between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Boston Celtics.
The Bucks, led by none other than two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, dominated the Chicago Bulls in the first round. After the dust settled, the Bucks won the series 4-1 and advanced to the Eastern Semis.
On the other hand, the Boston Celtics, led by the incredible duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, utterly destroyed the Brooklyn Nets in the opening round. So much so that the Nets failed to even a single game in the series as they were swept by the Celtics with the series finishing 4-0 in favor of Boston.
Considering the two teams are in top-notch form, the excitement for the series is through the roof.
Upon confirmation of the series being played between the Bucks and the Celtics, NBA fans could hardly contain their excitement for it. As a result, fans are making predictions about the best-of-7 series on Twitter.
To be honest, with both teams in red-hot form, the series is expected to be very close. But that is the case when both of them are at full capacity. As of now, the Bucks will be facing off against the Celtics without their second-best player in Khris Middleton.
The sharpshooter has been sidelined due to an MCL sprain in his left knee. He is expected to be re-evaluated soon but not before the first two games of the series between the Bucks and the Celtics.
If all goes well, Middleton should return to the roster in Game 3 or Game 4 and the Bucks will need to hold out until then. In Middleton's absence, the pressure on the Greek Freak will be even greater, but at the same time, if he leads the Bucks to a series victory over the Celtics, his place as the best player in the league will be cemented.
