The reindeer have played the last five matches without their leader Giannis Adetokumbo, but in the upcoming meeting there is a chance that he will return to the court. He left the covid protocol and now he needs to get fit. “Milwaukee” won three of the last five battles, fortunately in the composition there are both Middleton and Holiday, and the losses due to covid as a whole are not the most global. If you watch home games, then after a series of four defeats at the start of the season, another series of 11 matches stretched, in ten of which there were victories, and only once this season the Bucks won at home by less than 6 points. On the other hand, there are two defeats from “Boston”, but this factor will only add motivation to the “deer”.
The Celtics, through the efforts of Jalain Brown and Tatum and Williamson, are trying to stay afloat with very serious losses due to the coronavirus. “Celts” have won three of the last five battles, but they were all within their home walls, and only one victory away in the last five meetings. Since the beginning of November, “Boston” have played 11 away matches, winning just three times. On the one hand, Tatum and the company are just that team that is capable of sensations, but in this situation the balance of power is too unequal. Moreover, if Adetokumbo returns, and he probably does not want to miss the Christmas match, in which you can get revenge for two recent defeats.
Note that the first four defeats on the road “Boston” were with a difference of no more than 4 points, but in five losses from the next six away the difference in the score was already more than 6 points. The Bucks have won only once at home by less than 6 points. The rest of the victories were confident and big, so in this case I will believe in the strength of “Milwaukee” at home and draw attention to the victory of the hosts with a handicap (-6).
