Boston have a 18-34 record coming into the game, as this storied continue to worry fans on their slide down the standings. 

Milwaukee on the other hand are somewhat of the laughing joke of the NBA at this current moment. 

Luckless to say the least, they have managed to lose 41 of their 50 games so far this season. 

So what is their to play for tonight? Well, pride and trying to repay the fans for their faith. 

Rookie Nate Wolters certainly is thinking of trying to win one for the fans. 

"We've got to win at home. We haven't done a very good job of that this year," Wolters told "Hopefully we can get a couple wins here going into the All-Star break."

After losing the first two meetings with the Bucks, the Celtics got 18 points from Jeff Green in a 108-100 victory Dec. 3.

Rajon Rondo, who missed each of the first three meetings with the Bucks while recovering from ACL surgery, finished with 15 points.

"We still kept it close. That was the beauty of it," said Jared Sullinger, who had 11 points and 12 rebounds. "We played hard, but they just got away and the deficit was so big we couldn't dig ourselves out of that hole."

It's understood that Rondo may not play back to back games so early after his return from injury.
