The Boston Celtics are battling the Milwaukee Bucks, who are defending champions in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Bucks took a lead in Game 1 in Game 2, but the Celtics scored a 1-1 advantage. In Game 3, the Bucks took a lead of the series 2-1, defeating the Celtics to a 2-2.

During the teaser, fans have noticed anything unusual about Bostons uniforms.

In 2022, the Celtics wore No. 24 on their uniforms throughout the regular season and into the NBA playoffs.

The white number is embroidered on the left shoulder of the jersey on a black strip.

It is a commemoration of former Celtic Sam Jones, who was a key figure in the team''s illustrious history and won ten championships with them.

From 1957 to 1969, Jones was a member of the Celtics. In 1969, the Celtics retired his No. 24 and it now hangs in the rafters.

Jones was the first African-American to be inducted into the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame in 1996. He was chosen to the NBA''s 50 Greatest Players of All Time list.

In 2022, the Boston Celtics will have the opportunity to repeat some of Jones'' achievements with the franchise.

Despite forming the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the playoffs, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Defensive Player of the Year Marcus Smart were all able to witness Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

The Celtics have one of the most impressive and grittiest defensive units in the league, with one of the league''s most advanced youngsters. Ime Udoka has a number of renowned coaches.

The Bucks will be a difficult task to defeat Giannis, but the Celtics are likely to be capable.

Game 4 will take place tonight in Milwaukee (9 May).
