Celtics/Bucks Notes

April 28, 2018

Tonight’s decisive seventh game of their first round series is the third between the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks.

Boston won the previous two, most notably, in the 1974 NBA final. That game was in Milwaukee, and the Celts won there for the third time in that series.

The other #7 between the two teams was in their last ‘offs clash before this one, some 31 years ago, in 1987, when the Celtics prevailed at home.

They are 4 plus points favorites tonight.

 

Click below for a great post on Celts/Bucks with great details on the 1974 game for the title, played on a Mother’s Day afternoon with Pat Summerall, the lead announcer in CBS’ first year of NBA coverage.

The author is either Cort Reynolds aka “Professor Parquet” or “Professor Parquet.” In either case, I highly recommend the site.
