Bucks open second half with showdown vs. Celtics

With his high-profile All-Star Weekend now complete, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and his pals on the Milwaukee Bucks, will still have national exposure Thursday when the post-break schedule opens with a visit from the Boston Celtics.

The Eastern Conference-leading Bucks (43-14) will enter the nationally-televised contest having won 14 of their last 16 games and eight of their last nine. The Celtics, fourth in the conference at 37-21, have won 12 of their last 15 games and have taken two straight after a mini two-game skid.

Antetokounmpo's hand-picked All-Star team lost to one selected by LeBron James, but there is no shame in that for the MVP candidate who is scoring 27.2 points per game, seventh best in the NBA.
