With All-Star Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton out for his team’s Eastern Conference semifinals series with the Boston Celtics, it will take a lot more than it might have from superstar Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounpo to get past All-Star forward Jayson Tatum and the vaunted Celtics defense.

Will the Greek Freak need to do his best LeBron James impression for Milwaukee to advance to the NBA’s 2022 Eastern Conference finals in the absence of the team’s second-leading scorer in this series? Or will Boston’s elite play on both ends of the court and superior depth win the day for the Celtics?

The host of the Volume “Hoops Tonight” podcast Jason Timpf lays out the case for what would need to happen for a Bucks win, as well as why it will be so hard for Milwaukee to play against Boston.

Check out the clip embedded above to get his take on the dynamics of this series!
