Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks Saturday Game Preview, TV Schedule, and Betting Lines

Celtics' Coach Brad Stevens

Kevin Liles-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Celtics take their show on the road tonight at 8:00 PM EST against the Milwaukee Bucks.

No, Rajon Rondo is not back and amazingly the Celtics are favored (-2.5) despite not being at home, which is pretty shocking to me. Go with the Bucks to cover the spread. Have to admit will not be catching this one and it did shock me that the Bucks do not a network that broadcasts their home games. If this is actually true please hit me up on twitter, because that is a travesty if it is so.

Here is the TV info for that one that was able to find.

TV: CSN-New England, DTV: 630, 759

Head coach Brad Stevens was signed to a six year contract, and so for you that means you cannot trust him to be truly ready to coach this team to wins until a far later date. Stevens is not about to make the rookie coaching gaffe that Jason Kidd so un-surreptiously didn’t pull off the other night, but the former college coach does have a bit of a long leash. That is what a six year contract will do for you apparently, but I like Stevens’ chances of having success once the roster is rebuilt to a respectable place.

That is all for pro b-ball previews today, but check out my Rant Sports Prep pieces later tonight if the Cookie Monster is still hungry and thank you as always for reading.
