Milwaukee vs. Boston
For a team that finished the year with the NBA’s best record, the fourth best offensive rating in the league (113.5), the best defensive rating (104.9), and likely MVP and Defensive Player of the Year (Giannis Antetokounmpo), it still feels like Milwaukee is strangely underlooked.
Milwaukee completed the season with 28-13 against teams over .500, easily the best in the league, while also leading in point differential (+8.9). They easily defeated the already depleted Detroit Pistons team in the first round, remaining dominant as they have all year.
The Celtics and Bucks played three games against each other this year, with Milwaukee winning the season series 2-1.
