Will the Boston Celtics be able to continue slowing down Milwaukee Bucks superstar forward Giannis Antetokounmpo as they did in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series? Or will an adjustment on the part of the Bucks leave the Celtics reeling like they were to start Game 1 of the series?

Whichever way the third installment of the second-round series goes, so might go the rest of the series — and when it comes to postseason basketball among the heavyweights of the postseason, even minor adjustments can be magnified to great effect. Will Boston’s 3-and-D strategy remain effective moving forward?

The hosts of the CLNS Media “Celtics Beat” podcast Adam Kaufman and guest Sean Deveney of Heavy.com recently chopped it up on this particular topic and offered up their assessments of what might be coming down the pike in this East semis series.

Check out the clip embedded above to hear their takes!
