Aron Baynes powers Celtics to 2-0 lead over Milwaukee

More concerning than the Milwaukee Bucks' actual performance Tuesday night in Game 2 of their first-round National Basketball Association playoff series at Boston is what they had to say after their 120-106 loss to the Celtics.

It's about time Eric Bledsoe gets to know Terry Rozier as the Celtics point guard is outplaying the Bucks star through two playoff games.

Terry Rozier added 23 for the C's.

Five straight Horford points had Boston up 23-17 late in the first before a Brown 3-pointer stretched the lead to 30-19 with 1:24 left in the quarter. Middleton (25 points) added four more 3-pointers, while Antetokounmpo (30 points) flirted with a triple-double, finishing with nine rebounds and eight assists.

In the playoffs, the Bucks defense has looked helpless, because they are not able to generate turnovers, and really have not proven that they are capable of doing anything else to take the Celtics out of their game.

The young Celtics did the grown-man work of defending home-court advantage and will take a 2-0 series lead to Milwaukee for Friday's Game 3. "Teams been writing us off all year and we just keep proving them wrong, so that's what we're going to do". "Again, first-quarter differential, similar to the other night".

The Celtics bench came up big, outscoring their Milwaukee counterparts 41-25. Who is 7-of-12 this series with you guarding him.

In transition, the Bucks have the tools to be effective with athletes like Giannis and Eric Bledsoe, and a threat from deep like Khris Middleton.

Plus, Rozier is lighting up Bledsoe in their one-on-one matchups through two games.

"I went back and watched some film with coach".

"Boston, from the jump, I thought they played harder". A 13-0 Milwaukee run tied the game at 35 with 8:47 remaining in the half.

"If we don't play with an edge we will get beat by 30, so we better play with an edge, play competitive and be tough", he told reporters. In two games they have combined for 121 points and in two games the Bucks have 213 points total.

"Game was moving a lot faster in my mind than it had, so I had a couple of bad turnovers because I wasn't thinking out there", said Larkin, who planted himself in front of a video screen the next day with Brad Stevens, and let the lessons from those mistakes sink in.
