The two sides are pretty evenly matched on the court, despite the injuries of Hayward and Irving for the Celtics, with maybe Milwaukee having an edge, but the main difference between the two teams is the coaching. Unfortunately, they head into the playoffs look more like the latter than the former.

Remember back when the Boston Celtics traded Avery Bradley to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Marcus Morris? But this spring, the Celtics need to be Horford's team. He is not only is as much of an offensive threat as anyone else in this league, but he also has major playoff experience, including an National Basketball Association championship.

Horford did a little of everything in Game 1, providing a vital steadying presence to a Celtics' roster that is forced to rely on Jaylen Brown (21), Jayson Tatum (20) and Terry Rozier (24) to take, and make, big shots. If the Celtics stars were playing, this probably wouldn't be a close game or series. They are each starting in the postseason for the first time ever. With everyone out, this could be more of a coin toss. They have the home court advantage, and these factors will be enough to see them win through to the second round. Those 19 road wins are the fourth-fewest of any team in either conference. In fact, his career averages over 11 seasons are 14.2 ppg and 8.6 rpg. While there are concerns with the injuries, most of those relate to the offense. So far, not even the Celtics and their league-best defensive rating have truly had an answer. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 42.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42 rebounds per game. So if the Celtics can force him into the shots and situations in which he's not most efficient - or at least not abjectly terrifying - they should have a good chance at warding off an upset. The Bucks lack the scoring depth to beat good teams consistently, and you really can't ask for better play from Antetokounmpo and Middleton.
