Milwaukee Bucks at Boston Celtics (00:00 BST on Saturday) - Eastern Conference Semi-finals Game 3


Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals between the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics shifts to the TD Garden. The top-ranked Bucks tied the best-of-seven series at 1-1 after blasting the Celtics 123-102 on Tuesday. Giannis Antetokounmpo had 29 points and 10 rebounds as Milwaukee avenged their 112-90 loss in Game 1. They also handed the Celtics their first loss in this season’s play-offs. Khris Middleton made seven triples and finished with 27 points while Eric Bledsoe added 21 to make up for his six-point output in the opener. Brook Lopez and back-up playmaker George Hill chipped in 10 apiece while Pat Connaughton grabbed 11 rebounds. Marcus Morris paced Boston with 17 points while Jaylen Brown and Al Horford tallied 16 and 15, respectively. Kyrie Irving was held to nine points on a 4-of-18 shooting after posting 26 points and 11 assists in Game 1. Gordon Hayward scored just five points after contributing 13 off the bench in the opener. The Bucks and Celtics split their two meetings at the TD Garden in the regular season. We expect the Celtics to triumph at home.

Denver Nuggets at Portland Trail Blazers (03:30 BST on Saturday) - Western Conference Semi-finals Game 3


The Portland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets part ways after their duel at the Moda Centre on Friday. The Blazers tied their best-of-seven series in the Western Conference semi-final duel after posting a 97-90 win in Denver on Wednesday. Six Portland players scored in double figures with CJ McCollum leading the way with 20 points. The 27-year-old guard stepped up as backcourt mate Damian Lillard struggled throughout the game. The All-Star playmaker shot just 5-of-17 from the field and finished with 14 points after erupting for 39 in their 121-113 Game 1 loss on Monday. Rodney Hood followed up his 17-point performance in Game 1 with 15 points and three blocks off the bench while Al-Farouq Aminu tallied 11 points and 10 rebounds after scoring just two points in the opener. Nikola Jokic paced Denver with 16 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists. The Serbian centre, who scored 37 points in Game 1, scored just six points in the first half. Jamal Murray added 15 points but missed most of the fourth quarter with a right thigh issue while Paul Millsap tallied 14 and 11 rebounds. We are backing the Blazers to win Game 3.
