The Celtics won’t be facing Giannis when the Bucks come to town Wednesday


One of the Celtics final true tests of the regular season before the playoffs was set to take place on Wednesday night. But, Giannis Antetokounmpo’s absence from the game means that the Milwaukee Bucks won’t be complete when they visit Boston. Due to a hamstring issue, Antetokounmpo will miss his second straight game, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium. Additionally, he missed Milwaukee’s 140-129 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday, as Damian Lillard led the team with 31 points and 16 assists. The Celtics’ situation will be a little simpler on Wednesday since they won’t have to deal with Giannis.

Before the All-Star break,

He helped the Bucks defeat Boston 135-102, scoring 24 points on 10 of 13 shots. However, the C’s held him to 21 points on 7 of 20 shots in a November 119-116 victory in Boston. However, the Bucks are still a formidable club even without Antetokounmpo on the floor and driving to the rim like a wrecking ball. This season, Milwaukee is 3-1 when he is not available. In those games, Lillard averages 31.5 points per game on 48 percent shooting from the field and more than 40 percent from three-point range.

Due to injuries to former Bucks player Jrue Holiday’s right AC joint (sprain), left ankle sprain Sam Hauser (sprain), and right ankle sprain Jaylen Brown (sprain), the Celtics should be fully healthy for the game. Hauser’s ankle injury sustained during his 30-point shooting spree against the Wizards on Sunday night prevented him from playing in Monday night’s rout of the Pistons.

Even without their greatest player,

don’t expect the Celtics to take the Bucks lightly on Wednesday night since. They are the ones who caused one of Boston’s few ugly losses of the season. On April 9, the two teams will meet again in Milwaukee. Although it’s likely that the tiebreaker won’t be used at the end of the regular season. With five games remaining to secure the No. 1 seed in the league. The Celtics are presently 10 games ahead of the Bucks for the top place in the Eastern League.
