Keys to the Game: Celtics vs Bucks (Home Opener - October 18th 2017)
Below are the three major keys to a Celtics victory as they open up at home tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks
Getting Over Hayward's Injury:
The Celtics desperately need to put the injury behind them if they want to have any success this season, and tonight is going to be a huge test of that. It is going to be an emotional night for the Celtics, let's hope they can bounce back from a tragic event.
The Greek Freak
The Celtics need to shut down, or at least slow down, Giannis Antetokounmp. This long and athletic player is about to have a fantastic season, but the Celtics should give their best effort in making sure he doesn't dominate them in all facets of the game.
Big Al needs to step up now. Hayward goes down, Horford needs to be the one that, in a sense, fills his shoes. I want to see much more than 9 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 assists from him. Big Al, time to do something BIG.
