TONIGHT’S GAMES

Celtics at Bucks (Game 6), 7:00 p.m. CT on TNT — Celtics up 3-2

• That’s it! There are no other games tonight, unfortunately.

THE STORY

After losing Game 5 in Boston, a game where they had many opportunities to steal a road win, the Bucks will try to force a Game 7 with a win in Milwaukee tonight. The Bucks know what Giannis Antetokounmpo will give them on a nightly basis, but they will likely need other players like Jabari Parker and Kris Middleton have big contributions tonight in order to keep their season alive.

The Celtics, on the other hand, would love nothing more than to end this series in 6 games, closing out the Bucks on the road. Despite being short-handed, Boston has remained impressive in this series, let by their young, up and coming duo of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. Will the Celtics young guys be able to close this series out, or will they be back at TD Garden in a few days for a “win or go home” Game 7? Let’s find out!
