Boston Celtics: On the road it’s hard to win.
The Celtics had slight drawbacks against the Bucks, the series at one point became a difficult challenge, but thanks to the good strategy of the Celtics, everything turned out in favor of the team. The series was 7 games, and they only won the games at home, the Celtics were lucky that the last game was at home.
Starting the semifinals on the road will be complicated, because the effectiveness at home is much more positive than on the road. On the road shows a poor performance during the playoffs, all games at the Bucks’ house were a disaster, overall the team is with 28 wins and 16 losses for a 63.6% ERA this season.
