To date, neither team in the Boston Celtics‘ Eastern Conference semifinals series with the Milwaukee Bucks has won two games in a row, but now, with the series at 3-2 in favor of the Bucks, the Celtics will have to do exactly that in order to advance to the 2022 Eastern Conference finals.

It is a tall order given the much-cited stat of teams who take the lead in game 5 go on to win the series more than 80% of the time but was accomplished as recently as last season by Milwaukee when they overcame a similar deficit against the Brooklyn Nets. If any team in the league is built with a similar resolve capable of breaking through and stealing the series back from the Bucks, it’s Boston.

To break down how it would need to go, the hosts of the NBC Sports Boston “Early Edition” show dive into the looming Game 6 matchup on Friday night.
