Why Will the Celtics win?

Injuries have likely killed a championship opportunity, however, never underestimate a team coached by Brad Stevens. Very few coaches are as good as Stevens when it comes to getting the most out of talent. The key to the series will be the Celtics’ offensive production due to their young roster. They have been able to keep winning because of their ability to play defense, which can keep them in the series. If they’re going  to win the series, they are going to have to produce on the offensive end of the floor.

Why will the Bucks win?

The Bucks have been a disappointment this season and now comes a chance for this talented team to redeem themselves. How do the Bucks win? Very simply stated, Giannis needs to take over. He is the most talented player on the court and the Bucks’ defense can stifle the Celtics.

Prediction: The Celtics have one of the best coaches in basketball in Brad Stevens and in the end, he will be the biggest factor in the series. The Bucks are an irratic defensive team, so I will go with the more dependable team with the better coach. Celtics in 7
