Brown's 30 help Celts grab 2-0 series lead

Following last night's Boston Celtics, 120-106, win over the Bucks in game 2, Bledsoe was asked about having to defend Celtics guard Terry Rozier III.

Filling in for injured point guard Kyrie Irving, the 24-year-old guard has averaged 23 points, 5.5 assist, and zero turnovers on 47-percent shooting in the Celtics' first-round playoff series against the Bucks.

Celtics guard Jaylen Brown led the way with 30 points and five other Boston players scored in double figures. We'll get by. That's where Boston is right now: they won 55 games in the regular season and have taken a 2-0 lead in this series as the next guys up have stepped up.

Instead, Rozier has been the driving force behind a Celtics team that is in a position to take a 3-0 lead in the series.

At the post-media presscon, the “Greek Freak” was asked if his team has to play with more effort – an observation also seconded by his Bucks coach earlier.

Boston Marathon victor Desiree Linden was honored during a timeout in the first quarter. "Realizing where I made the mistakes in Game 1, and realizing what I had to do in Game 2 and not let them get out in transition".

The Celtics bench came up big, outscoring their Milwaukee counterparts 41-25.


Rajon Rondo had 16 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists for the Pelicans, who host the Blazers on Thursday as the series shifts to New Orleans. Khris Middleton added 25 points.

If he continues to play like he has in the first two games, by not giving Milwaukee anything on offense or the glass while playing his usual bad defense, that probably should mean he doesn't hit the floor at all for the last few games. In two games they have combined for 121 points and in two games the Bucks have 213 points total.

Portland trailed by as many as 11 points in the third quarter but Lillard hit a 3-pointer and added a free throw to tie the game at 93 with 7:31 left.

Boston, for all the names they are missing, keep epitomizing the next man up mentality that makes professional sports entertaining.

Defensively, Rozier's size, strength and athleticism have bothered Bledsoe all over the floor. Antetokounmpo scored just two points (on 1-of-1 shooting) with two turnovers on those six plays.

Tuesday marked the ninth straight game that Antetokounmpo has scored at least 20 points against the Celtics. When a reporter repeated the question, Bledsoe answered, "I don't even know who the f-- that is". The two teams will play Friday night in Milwaukee. "We will regroup and head back home for Game 3".
