Terry Rozier Responds To Eric Bledsoe's Ridiculous Snub After Game 2

Terry Rozier Responds To Eric Bledsoe's Ridiculous Snub After Game 2

To put that in perspective, Milwaukee's turnovers have accounted for 20.6 percent of the points scored by Boston in this playoff series.

The Milwaukee Bucks will be looking to bounce back after getting outplayed by the Celtics in a disappointing 120-106 loss in Game 2.

The sixth-seeded Pelicans won both road games in Portland and could wrap up the first-round series on their home court with games three and four in New Orleans.

Right now Rozier is generating that ball movement as well as anyone has this season, and he is the one making sure that they do not lose their rhythm because of turnovers.

Irving is out for the remainder of the season because of knee surgery. Marcus Smart goes out?

Raptors 130, Wizards 119 - At Toronto: DeMar DeRozan matched his career playoff-high with 37 points, Jonas Valanciunas had 19 points and 14 rebounds and Toronto beat Washington, taking a 2-0 lead in a playoff series for the first time in franchise history. The Bucks didn't get closer than three the rest of the way. The Celtics have repeatedly targeted him on defense, and he has obviously not made them pay on the other end. Boston went 13 of 31 from the 3-point line. Rozier had 23 points in that game to Bledsoe's nine.

The hosts were award a penalty late on after substitute Freedom Omofowan was hacked down in the box. Akwa United were unable to score a fourth as they crashed out 3-3 on aggregate.

But they're just as culpable as their teammates for Milwaukee's struggles.

And while it may sound like typical coach speak, Brad Stevens has every reason to sound the alarm about this series being far from over, even with a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Game 3 is set for Friday in Milwaukee. While Boston is doing it with the next man up, the Bucks can't get it done with their normal rotation. Rozier is the guy who's been lighting you up for two straight games, Eric.

For one thing, Larkin didn't turn the ball over in 21 minutes Tuesday night. Shot 62 percent in the first half (23 of 37).

Antetokounmpo topscored for the Bucks with a near triple-double effort with 30 points, 8 assists and 9 rebounds and Khris Middleton added 25 points and 4 boards. They have the personnel to space the floor adequately, but they don't have a system that gets the most out of their role players. The Celtics were battered and seemingly vulnerable, but instead of squashing a banged-up bunch, the Bucks have been punched back by them. The Celtics can let Antetokounmpo and Middleton score 30 plus points each as long as the supporting cast does nothing, and if this is the case the Celtics will win this series easily. Don't believe us? Take a look at the numbers.

"Who?" Bledsoe responded, after being asked "how personally" he took the matchup against the opposing point guard. Tony Snell has been invisible on offense through two games. "People are going to respect me", he said.

Malcolm Brogdon, last year's Rookie of the Year, didn't play in the fourth quarter of Game 2. Granted, Game 1 elevated well past the total thanks to overtime but it exceeded the number on its own merits in regulation. In Game 2 that meant a 5-for-13 shooting performance from the field. We have a lot of guys in here that have never seen a playoff game.
