The Boston Celtics are staring down a collision with the defending NBA champions in the 2022 NBA Eastern Conference semifinals after sweeping the preseason title favorites, Brooklyn Nets, in the first round.

Superstar forward Giannis Antetokounmpo looms large on the Celtics’ postseason horizon.

Boston will face its first elite defense of the 2022 playoffs, though it is increasingly likely the Bucks will not have marksman Khris Middleton for the Celtics series due to a sprained MCL. Despite that, the series still shapes up as perhaps the most intense of the playoffs.

Can Boston get past the Bucks? How will they have to change how they play in this series? What will be crucial to a Celtics series win?

The hosts of the CLNS Media “Celtics Lab” podcast dug into Boston’s second-round opponent in their most recent episode — check out the clip embedded above to hear all things Celtics-Bucks.
