The Bucks’ modern defense and what it means for the Celtics

I’ll be honest. Watching Milwaukee steal away Game 1 from Toronto and later throttle them in Game 2 gives me a sense of relief, a relief knowing that Boston had lost to the better team in the Bucks and potentially the eventual East representatives in The Finals. There’s some consolation knowing that we weren’t the only ones getting mowed down by Milwaukee. It’s not just us. Initially, I had actually thought that the Raptors might be better the team with the best player in the conference, but the Bucks are for real and maybe more so, it’s their quirky defense that might just win them a championship.
