Boston Celtics at Milwaukee Bucks (01:00 BST on Thursday) - Eastern Conference Semi-finals Game 5


The Eastern Conference semi-finals duel between the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics returns to the Fiserv Forum with the Bucks aiming to clinch the series. The top-seeded Bucks took a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven affair after securing a 113-101 win in Boston on Monday night. Giannis Antetokounmpo had 39 points and 16 rebounds to lead the Bucks, who are on the verge of reaching the conference finals for the first time since 2001 when they lost to the Allen Iverson-led Philadelphia 76ers in seven games. George Hill added 15 points off the bench while Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton chipped in 13 apiece. Pat Connaughton had another productive night as he tallied nine points and 10 rebounds. All Boston starters scored in double figures with Kyrie Irving (23 points, 10 assists) and Al Horford (20 points) leading the charge. Marcus Morris (18 points, 14 rebounds) and Jayson Tatum (17 points, 10 rebounds) registered double-doubles for the Celtics, who eliminated the Bucks in seven games in their conference semi-final duel last season. The Celtics need to stop Antetokounmpo, who is averaging 30.5 points and 11.8 rebounds in the series. The “Greek Freak” struggled with his shooting in their 112-90 home loss in Game 1 but has since been on a roll. Bledsoe, Middleton, Connaughton and Nikola Mirotic are also playing well in the series. Irving, in contrast, is hoping to shoot better after going 19-of-62 in their last three games. The Bucks are determined to finish off the Celtics at home and we expect them to do that.

Houston Rockets at Golden State Warriors (03:30 BST on Thursday) - Western Conference Semi-finals Game 5


The Western Conference semi-final duel between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets returns to the Oracle Arena all tied up at 2-2. The Rockets levelled the best-of-seven series after securing a 112-108 win in Monday’s Game 4 at the Toyota Centre. James Harden erupted for 38 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead Houston to their second consecutive win in the series after being swept in Oakland in Game 1 and Game 2. The reigning league MVP made six triples and made a key free throw down the stretch to keep the Warriors at bay. Eric Gordon backed him up with 20 points while PJ Tucker had 17 points and 10 rebounds. Kevin Durant paced Golden State with 34 points while Stephen Curry added 30 points and eight assists in his best performance in the series so far. Expect another scoring battle between Harden and Durant. Harden is averaging 35.8 points in the series while Durant is producing 36 points per game. We expect the Warriors to bounce back in Game 5.
