The Celtics lost the first of the series at home because of a poor offense. Adjustments are going to be made and the Celtics are still the #1 defense in the NBA and are capable of turn the things out on this series and they can't give away the second game at home. Boston has covered the spread in 7 of their last 8 games vs the Bucks so I'm going with the Celtics.
PICK: Celtics -4.5 (-110)
