GAME 4: BOSTON CELTICS AT MILWAUKEE BUCKS (-5.5) | O/U: 204
Boston Leads 2-1

What to watch for: The Bucks made eight 3-pointers in Game 1. They made seven in Game 2.
They made 16 in Game 3.
That’s really as simple as it gets. If Giannis Antetokounmpo and Thon Maker go 6-of-8 from deep, the Bucks are going to win. Role players shoot better at home, but let me give you a little context on how the Celtics were scheming those shots from Milwaukee:
Here, Marcus Morris runs away from Antetokounmpo.
Be prepared for a different approach Sunday, given Brad Stevens’ comments after the game:
Asked Brad Stevens that it appeared the Celtics were letting Giannis shoot threes and whether they have to reevaluate that strategy since he's hitting them. He made it clear they want to contest his shots and need to do better, but cautiously to not let him find a lane: pic.twitter.com/F3Zx9Imtuj
