Celtics at Bucks Open Thread: Game time, Pistons playoff impact, and more

Talk about Celtics at Bucks and the Pistons’ related playoff chances here. If you want. I won’t make you.

NBA: Boston Celtics at Milwaukee Bucks Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

I know I’m hate-watching the Bucks until the Pistons are formally eliminated from the playoffs. I suspect a lot of you are too, so let’s talk about it! Preferably in this thread!

A reminder of what the Pistons need from Milwaukee to make the playoffs:

Boston is not going to play nice and help Detroit, though:

If you’re keeping score at home, that is the FOUR primary point guard options for the Celtics (Kyrie Irving, Marcus Smart, Terry Rozier, and Shane Larkin) out for tonight’s game. It is an enormous credit to Brad Stevens that the Celtics could still sneak off and win this one.

Of course, Milwaukee already blew ONE sure win this week. Who knows what could be in store?

Game Vitals:

When: Tuesday, April 3, at 8 p.m. EST
Where: BMO Harris Bradley Center, Milwaukee, WI
Watch: NBA League Pass, The Internet
Odds: MIL -3.5
