Celtics fall flat in Game 3 rout in Milwaukee

Boston Celtics forward Marcus Morris

The Bucks entered Friday's game in Milwaukee down 0-2 in the best-of-seven series and Maker and Dellavedova had seen scant court time in the two losses.

He's been a particular source of frustration for Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe.

Inside the chessmaster play National Basketball Association teams love to run (read here): ESPN's Zach Lowe looked at this particular offensive set that has been deployed by playoff teams so far during this young postseason, including by the Celtics in their series with the Bucks.

Being back home in Milwaukee certainly favored the Bucks, as they'd go onto shoot an impressive 57 percent from the field and 48.5 percent from deep (16-33 3PT), in a, 116-92, Game 3 home win, cutting the C's series lead to 2-1.

"I thought when Delly and Maker came in their energy was contagious", Stevens said. "Yeah. Whatever that is, just try to be on the good side". "That's what point guards do". Brown had a few nifty buckets, but he only had 11 points on 4-of-9 shooting.

He's also committed six turnovers, something that's been a significant issue so far from the Bucks, who've committed 35 in the series.

Following his fantastic performance in Game 2's 120-106 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in which he scored 23 points on 8-for-14 shooting from the field, Rozier got the attention of Instagram hottie and Miss Kentucky beauty pageant contestant, Christen McAllister. "The crowd was great tonight, they got us going". 'Who?' (read here): Also of the Journal Sentinel, Ben Steele wrote about Eric Bledsoe, who committed to his unusual tactic of not knowing who Celtics guard Terry Rozier is as well as expressed his desire for the team to up their intensity and hustle now that they're down 2-0.

Bradley Beal heeded his coach's plea to "do his job" by scoring 21 of his 28 points in the first half to help the Washington Wizards beat the Toronto Raptors 122-103 in an occasionally heated game that cut their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series deficit to 2-1.

For his part, Prunty tried to brush off Parker's comments, saying that the third-year pro was indeed in his good graces.

The two-time All-Star said the Bucks have to "make [Parker] know that we need him".

Rozier downplayed the notion of bad blood or a personal rivalry with Bledsoe and said the Celtics won't take anything for granted in Game 3, even with a somewhat comfortable advantage.

"They came out with a very, very high intensity". We gotta come out, set screens - we gotta be just as physical. We're coming out and we're still going to be aggressive, because we're coming out to win.

"We can't get too sped up or get slowed down", Maker said.
