NBA Game 7 predictions: Who will win Bucks-Celtics, Mavs-Suns?

Bucks-Celtics has been epic. Mavs-Suns has been unexpected. Both second-round series are going the distance with a trip to the conference finals on the line. Which teams will prevail? Which stars will step up? Our writers weigh in.

Celtics-Bucks, Game 7: Who ya got?

Howard Beck: The team with the best player usually wins the series, so you gotta go with Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks. Then again, the home team has won 79 percent of all Game 7s, so you gotta go with the Celtics.

Also, I clearly cannot choose the wine in front of me. What was the question again?
