The real NBA season begins with the NBA Playoffs. 16 teams will be vying for the biggest prize in basketball. In the first round, the Boston Celtics face the Milwaukee Bucks. The Celtics are missing some key pieces but have an elite defense to carry the team. However, the Bucks have Giannis Antetokounmpo, who has the potential to win a series all on his own. Who advances? 🏀

Many think the Celtics' outlook is bleak without Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward. Still, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have stepped up and the squad has been guided by veteran Al Horford. Boston also has Brad Stevens calling the shots from the bench and he has the team playing at a high level. 

The Celtics are stopping the opposition when it counts, sporting the third best defense in the league. Defense wins championships and the Celtics won't let the Bucks stop them.

The Bucks have a solid team, but Giannis Antetokounmpo holds the key to any postseason success. The Greek Freak has been tearing through the NBA, averaging 26.9 points, 10 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game this season. He's also pulling his weight on defense, accounting for 1.5 steals and 1.4 blocks per game.

Antetokounmpo will be flying around the court with no regard for human life. Without their stars, Boston will be helpless to stop him. The Bucks will advance to the next round.
