Bucks' Brogdon out for Game 5 - but will it even matter?

I am never one to give up hope, but even the news that Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon will miss Game Five fails to inspire much confidence in this Boston Celtics team facing them.

Down three games to one, Boston will need to win three games in a row to advance, something that no collection of teams -- never mind the same team -- has accomplished all season.

I suppose with the return of Marcus Smart to a bigger role on defense (and a smaller one on offense) might just set us up for another disappointment or two, but Brogdon or not, this team isn't advancing unless it finds a way to play together.
