NBA Playoffs Pre-Gamin’: Bucks at Celtics (6:00 CT) and Warriors at Grizzlies (8:30 CT)

Chicago Bulls

Can the home teams even things up tonight?

Milwaukee Bucks at Boston Celtics

Eastern Conference Semi-Finals: Game 2

After sweeping the Brooklyn Nets in the opening round, the Boston Celtics were brought crashing down to earth on Sunday as Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks steam-rolled the Celtics on their home floor, reminding them who the defending champions are. Boston had their worst shooting performance of the playoffs, and Giannis put together a triple-double in a convincing Game 1 victory for the Bucks.

The Celtics will be desperate for a victory tonight because an 0-2 hole heading to Milwaukee might be too big of a hole to climb out of. If the Celtics didn’t have enough on their plate with the Bucks, Marcus Smart is questionable for Game 2 with a quad injury suffered on Sunday.

Golden State Warriors at Memphis Grizzlies

Western Conference Semi-Finals: Game 2

The Golden State Warriors stole home court from the Memphis Grizzlies in a game one thriller, and they’re actually two-point favorites on the road tonight in Game 2. Stephen Curry and the Warriors will be looking to take a two-nil lead back to The Bay, while Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies will be searching to even things up before the series shifts venues.

Stephen Curry scored 16 points in the second half on Sunday to help the Warriors eke out a game that Memphis let slip out of their grasp. What does Steph have in his bag of tricks tonight?
