Malcolm Brogdon Expected To Return From Foot Injury Tonight

Kyrie Irving

Wednesday night May 8, 2019, the Milwaukee Bucks easily eliminated the Boston Celtics from the playoffs in five games, sealing the deal at home in a 116-91 blowout.

Tonight's clinching Game 5, in which the hometown Bucks trailed for literally 10 seconds, simply said it all- Milwaukee spread the love and had seven players score in double figures, while the hapless Celtics were an absolute mess, shooting a awful, teeth-gnashing 31% from the floor with their season in the balance.

Milwaukee took control before halftime, pulled away in the third quarter and cruised to the victory from there.

Kyrie Irving's postseason shooting woes have been well documented and not something he's been exactly pleased to talk about after games.

Milwaukee outscores Boston 30-20 to build a 13-point halftime lead. Marcus Smart, Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward all missed relatively open 3-pointers during the run. I've said from the get-go, this time in the locker room, when they're all together, is great.

Boston is shooting an ice-cold 19-for-71 (26.8%) from the field and will look to warm up to have a chance to claw back into this one.

Irving, who could become one of the most prominent free agents, talked about "moving on to the next thing", indicating he could play elsewhere.

I noticed something was wrong with this team in just its fourth game of the season, when it fell to the Magic at home, 93-90. Irving's performance in the five-game series against the Milwaukee Bucks was a study in contrasts.

Irving never really found his rhythm offensively, especially in the Celtics' four straight losses. He managed to stuff the scoresheet but was inconsistent and struggled to create for himself and others.

The Bucks responded by winning the next four games by an average of 15.75 points, including twice on the road.

Irving can leave Boston in the summer, with multiple reports suggesting he will choose to join the New York Knicks.

The 27-year-old point guard went 6-for-21 from the field and 1-of-7 from 3-point range as he ended up with 15 points in a Game 5 performance that will be remembered for all of the wrong reasons. Malcolm Brogdon, who had been sidelined with a foot issue since mid-March, returned to action Wednesday night.

Brogdon's minutes figure to ramp up from here, and his addition gives the Bucks yet another threat behind Antetokoumpo.

The Bucks will play the victor of the series between Ben Simmons' Philadelphia 76ers and the Toronto Raptors.
