But Oladipo was a much more average player after the All-Star break this season, dropping in scoring (from 24.4 points before the break to 20.3 after), rebounds (5.3 to 4.9) and shooting (48.4 percent from the field and 38.1 percent from the 3-point line to 46.0 percent and 34.2).

The two sides are pretty evenly matched on the court, despite the injuries of Hayward and Irving for the Celtics, with maybe Milwaukee having an edge, but the main difference between the two teams is the coaching. It was a tumultuous season, filled with injuries and a head-coaching change, but they're back in the playoffs for a second straight season.

Sixteen people have died as a result of a crash last week when the Broncos' bus collided with a semi-truck just south of Nipawin. Ethan, a leukemia patient, proudly displays his Maple Leafs jersey as he and his mother visited Regional Hospital's Met Campus.

Standing in their way will be the Boston Celtics. By the midway point of the quarter, Milwaukee already had outscored the Celtics 24-4. Entering the playoffs, Horford has most of the experience, but Morris is the player who can create his own shot and also step up as a vocal leader. Just the way they have all season long.

The "kids" on the squad came through on the big stage as Rozier scored eight of his 23 points in overtime, Jaylen Brown scored 20 points while playing nearly 46 minutes, and rookie Jayson Tatum scored 19 points to go with 10 rebounds in 44 minutes. "The way that they were playing me, it was forcing me to be closer to the basket, which is fine with me". With everyone out, this could be more of a coin toss. Horford averaged 1.7 free throws per game this season, then went out and made 13 of 14 from the line while attacking Milwaukee's defense. Those 19 road wins are the fourth-fewest of any team in either conference. In addition, Jaylen Brown has been dominant this season and will be an important piece for the Celtics in the postseason. Both were good for the third-best mark in the National Basketball Association.

But it's the latter that will most be needed for the Green Team. But he said he must do a better job the defensive end against Horford going forward. Brad Stevens still has Al Horford and that may be enough to propel them past the Milwaukee Bucks and into the second round. Eric Bledsoe doesn't seem to fit in at times and Giannis Antetokounmpo doesn't always perform like a superstar. Look for the Celtics to clamp down on him and force the other Bucks to beat him.
