Celtics vs. Bucks: Marcus Smart is back

New, comments

Boston will look to tie up the series.

NBA: Miami Heat at Boston Celtics Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

It’s time for Game 4 between the Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks. The two teams square off on TNT at 4:00 p.m. PT. Boston will be looking to tie the series up at home, while Milwaukee is hoping to take a commanding 3-1 series lead.

The Celtics are getting some reinforcements back, as guard Marcus Smart is returning to the team.

Smart was a huge part of the Celtics success this year, though it remains to be seen how much of an impact he’ll have on this game. Due to an oblique tear, Smart hasn’t played since April 7. It will be interesting to see how many minutes Brad Stevens gives him.

The winner of this series will make it the Eastern Conference Finals, and then be one step away from the NBA Finals, and a potential dance with the Golden State Warriors.

It should be a great game to serve as an appetizer before the Warriors and the Houston Rockets.
