A quick hitting preview of tonight’s game.

With the opening tip of the Boston Celtics 2020-21 season just a couple of hours away, CelticsPod previews what to expect from them against Milwaukee. With Kemba Walker missing due to injury, will the Celtics have enough playmaking in their starting unit to undo the Bucks’ powerhouse defense?

Will the Celtics look to build a wall against Giannis in transition? And how much gravity are they willing to afford the reigning MVP when the likes of Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton are on the floor?

With the size and length that the Bucks have throughout their roster, the Celtics best route to victory may be in the mid-range, but do the Celtics have enough penetrators to make that style of basketball work?

Brenden is curious about the role Tristan Thompson will play in the opening few games after missing pre-season due to injury, and what does this mean for Daniel Theis and Robert Williams in the rotation?

With so many questions surrounding the roster on Opening Night, the CelticsPod team do their best to look at each position and investigate where the battles will be won and lost.
