What is the Celtics best chance to beat the Bucks?

Celtics fans are locked and loaded.  We had a nice win at home against Toronto and then we smashed a hapless NY Knicks team for our second win of the year. The NBA Championship is not decided in game 4 of the regular season but my guess is that Celtic fans will be ripping the roof off the Garden tonight.  This game will tell us where we stand.  And we all know it.

Let's look at what we need to do to beat the Bucks:


1. Stop Giannis.  How are we gonna do that?  The man is a beast.  But what Milwaukee doesnt know yet is that we have a surprise in store for the reigning MVP.


That's right.  Our new rookie strongman Grant Williams is going to get his chance to show people how it is done.  Stay in front of the Greak Freak.  Make him shoot outside.  And body the heck out of him when he tries to offensive rebound.  Giannis is not going to like what Grant puts on him.  That's all I'm gonna say.

2. Put Brook Lopez into pick and roll situations.  Rob Williams has made a ton of progress and he looks very comfortable with the ball in his hands right now.  He seems to have mastered the art of setting high screens and then rolling to the basket.  Expect multiple highlight level slams from our big man tonight.  Lopez is way too slow to hedge and then recover to stop Rob's roll to the hoop.  Plus it seems like Brook might have other things on his mind right now:

3. Our fans need to show up like it is the NBA Finals.  The game is gonna be a sellout of course.  Im talking about showing up

  1. Lopez will be bothered by.....nah. I'm not thinking a pro can be derailed by that Disney/Ebay stuff. What ever happened to Semi covering Giannis? That ended at some point last year- (no offense from the position?) Fingers crossed for the Celtics- good game! & it'll be a fun sports TV night. -
    I have to say I'm rooting for the Astros so Bryce Harpers feelings wont be hurt...

    (NOT!! ) Ha Ha Ha .
    (total hair envy)

    1. Semi just can't supply the offense and rebounding. His D is great, but he offers little else.

  2. I like Grant Williams - High BB IQ. He's got a lot to offer. At 6' 8" - big body----. Can he stay in front of that Freak? He's going to work hard if he draws Giannis at any point. But he never saw anybody like this while at Tn. (or in the world ;)
