Celtics' Marcus Smart questionable for Game 5 vs

Share

Though he had the winning shot in Sunday's Game 4 against Boston, Giannis Antetokounmpo chose to share the credit with his teammates afterwards. The Celtics are the 2 seed in the East, but are playing without All Star Kyrie Irving. By the time the couple left-politely and without complaining, because they are great people, witnesses report-irate customers had summoned police officers to the premises, who proceeded to exacerbate this miscarriage of justice by not writing up anyone who had the audacity to stand between Giannis Antetokounmpo and what I assume to be barbacoa tacos.

But one upset win by the Bucks in Game 5 could change everything. The Celtics can not expect home court to magically make this team function well again, and that is the easiest way for them to drop a third straight game. He had played 37 minutes in each of the first two games this series, scoring 12 points along with six rebounds and four assists in Game 2. Boston played well in the first two games at home and almost stole Game 4 after being down 19 on the road. He scored 23 points in each of those Boston wins, confidently hitting 47 percent of his shots. Brown, along with Jayson Tatum have stepped up in Irving's absence. Instead, the Celtics couldn't make the one or two critical plays in the final minute that could have bailed them out and they return to Beantown with the series tied at two plus the opposition holding all the momentum.

James finished with 32 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists, while Kyle Korver scored 18 points for the Cavaliers in the win. With the series now tied at 2-2, the sense of urgency for Boston to get Marcus Smart back into action has definitely increased. There's an old coaching adage that tells players to stay ready, because they never know when their chance to make an impact has arrived. Middleton added 23 points (8/14 FG) for the Bucks, while Jabari Parker chipped in with 16 off the bench.

Even though Smart hasn't played in a competitive game in more than a month, the Bucks have every intention of going at him as though he had played in every game of this series. "That's one of the things that I've always appreciated about him and we've got a locker room full of those guys, and I think his leadership is a big reason why". "So Game 5, keep moving forward". Look for the Celtics to defend their home floor and take a 3-2 series lead with another gritty performance. That being said, the Celtics need to be pushing themselves more and not less because they are home, making sure there is nothing the Bucks can do to steal a game in Boston, and put the Celtics on the brink of elimination.
