BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The Celtics won their third in a row to finish a home-and-home sweep of the Pistons Tuesday and, tonight, with members of the world champion Red Sox expected to be in attendance, the C's will try for their fourth straight victory against a team that hasn't lost. Milwaukee's 7-0 to Boston's 5-2. This marks their first meeting since the Celts eliminated the Bucks from the playoffs last spring.
Kyrie Irving went off for a season-high 31 points two nights ago, but admitted he's still trying to find his way with his group healthy and incredibly deep.
"Just not getting too one-sided," Irving said. "Not trying to be too much of a playmaker or too much of a shooter, just trying to find a happy balance of, how do you fit in with such a unique, special team? It's not an easy task."
Celtics' Marcus Morris May Be In NBA Sixth Man Of The Year Conversation
One guy probably eager to shoot is Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Bucks star missed Monday's win over the previously unbeaten Raptors because of a concussion, but he's cleared to return to the lineup. The Greek Freak's averaging 25 points, 14 rebounds, and 6 assists this season, but his career regular season totals against the Celtics are closer to 18, 7, and 4.
Jaylen Brown's questionable with a sore foot.
Boston took five of six games from Milwaukee at the Garden last year. Tip-off at 8.
