The Boston Celtics rebounded from an 11-point deficit in the second half and drew an eight-point lead against the Milwaukee Bucks in the closing minutes of Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series on Monday. The series is now tied 2-2 and will return to Boston for a crucial Game 5 on Wednesday night.
Al Horford cleared the way for the Celtics in Game 4 as he had a postseason career high with 30 points on 11 of 14 from the field, along with eight rebounds, three assists and some outstanding defenses. On the other hand, Giannis Antetokounmpo led the loss for Milwaukee with 34 points, 18 rebounds and five assists.
With the series tied, both teams will now try to take the lead in Game 5 as the team that wins the fifth game in a 2-2 series wins that series most of the time. With that in mind, here’s everything you need to know about Game 5 between Boston and Milwaukee.

Featured Game | Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks
Celts: Robert Williams’ health is a big question for Boston ahead of Game 5. Williams was a late game 4 scratch with knee pain and while they were still able to get the win without him, the Celtics would obviously like him have Williams available. Williams is listed as a questionable for Game 5, and his final status will likely be determined shortly before the tip. If he can leave, he will be another weapon the Celtics will have in their defensive arsenal.
dollar: Celtics all-star forward Jayson Tatum’s solid defense will continue to be key for the Bucks in this series. Tatum may have had 30 points in Game 4, but overall Milwaukee did a solid job making life difficult for him. Tatum has shot 50 percent off the field in just one of the four games in the series so far, and in Game 3 — a contest the Bucks won — he stayed on just 10 total points. Tatum is obviously central to Boston’s success on offense. So if the Bucks can keep slowing him down, they’ll give themselves a solid shot at moving forward.
Momentum has been pretty wild in this series, making it a bit difficult to predict. However, watch out for the Bucks to recover from a tough loss and restore their lead in the series. It will be difficult for Al Horford to repeat last game’s success and the Bucks were able to make life difficult for Tatum. Choose: dollars +5.5
