Video: Perkins says today's Celtics vs Bucks game is a preview of the Eastern Conference Finals
Merry Christmas everyone. Your Boston Celtics will host the Milwaukee Bucks this evening at 5pm. Kendrick Perkins says this will absolutely be the two teams that will face off in the Eastern Conference Finals this coming spring. Perk also bet on Anthony Davis to be this season's MVP despite how fragile he is, so always take his predictions with a grain of salt.
But these are the past two Eastern Conference champions and both teams are still in their primes, so it makes sense for someone to predict that this evening's match-up will serve as a preview of the conference finals. The Celtics haven't been playing their best ball of the year the past couple weeks, but a hot shooting performance today could be all that's needed to get them back on track.
