Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis were both questionable but have both decided to suit up for tonight’s game. Boston would be wise to test these two, including allowing Rajon Rondo to post up on them.
After tonight, the Celtics begin a four game road trip, and picking up a victory before taking to the road will go a long way.
Tonight’s first key is containing the dynamic but injured duo of Ellis and Jennings.
The second key is rebounding. Milwaukee’s roster is loaded with frontcourt players who aggressively crash the boards. Getting a body on these players and preventing second-chance opportunities will go a long way towards earning a win.
Hopefully, inserting Jason Collins into the starting line up will continue to pay dividends.
The third key for tonight is for the Celtics bench to come alive. The second-unit will be pivotal during the road trip and would be wise to use this game in order to gain momentum.
