Milwaukee will seek to progress to another Eastern Conference Final on its way to a title defence when it faces Boston at Fiserv Forum on Saturday morning.

The Bucks took a 3-2 advantage at TD Garden after overcoming a 14-point deficit as it held on for a 110-107 victory. 

After looking the goods throughout the contest, Boston found itself at the end of its worst fourth-quarter effort in the playoffs this season. 

Despite the best efforts of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, the Celtics conceded 41-23 in the final period as two late Marcus Smart turnovers all but sealed the loss. 

It was interesting to see Celtics coach Ime Udoka deploy a smaller squad towards the back end of the contest with Tatum, Brown, Al Horford and Derrick White trying to hit the scoreboard. 

But what the Celtics might have gained in offence with that combo, it lacked in hustle on the boards – an area it needs to focus on coming into game six. 

Boston showed its ability to hang up a win on the road against the Bucks after scoring a 116-108 win in game four, so winning at Fiserv Forum is nothing new. 

Boston can send this to a seventh if it can tighten up defensively on the boards. 

Suggested Bet: Boston head to head at $2.01

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Boston head to head
Leg 2: J. Tatum over 27.5 points
Leg 3: J. Brown over 25.5 points
Combined odds = $5.50

Golden State returns home with the chance to progress to the Western Conference Final when it meets Memphis at Chase Center.

While the Warriors might hold the home-court advantage, Memphis comes in with the momentum of a massive 134-95 win without Ja Morant. 

The Grizzlies went bonkers in the first three quarters and cruised to an easy victory. 

Funnily, Memphis looked at its best throughout this series in the game-five win as Jaren Jackson, Desmond Bane and Tyus Jones all hit 21 points each. 

Golden State did look like it put the cue in the rack on Thursday, and the signs were there based on the rebound numbers. 

The Grizzlies hauled in 18 offensive rebounds to four in a brilliant display. 

Even though Golden State is expected to win this game as a $1.25 favourite, there is much to like about Memphis. 

It has found a different layer to its offence without Morant. 

Suggested Bet: Memphis +8.5 at $1.88

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Memphis +8.5
Leg 2: Total points under 217.5
Leg 3: D. Bane over 20.5 points
Combined odds = $7.50
