Brown Scores 30, Celtics Win Again

Brown, 21, poured in 30 points on 12-of-22 shooting to become the youngest Celtics player in postseason history to reach the milestone in Boston's 120-106 win over Milwaukee to take a 2-0 lead in the series.

Celtics guard Terry Rozier has been the breakout performer in Boston's first-round series against the Bucks. When Milwaukee Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe was asked about Rozier, who posted 23 points and eight assists in the win, Bledsoe pretended not to know who Rozier was. Antetokounmpo led Milwaukee with 30 points and nine rebounds. Game 3 is Friday in Milwaukee.The Celtics led by as many as 20 points in the fourth quarter as their ball movement overwhelmed the Bucks.

It appeared to be the game-winner on Sunday, when Terry Rozier faked a drive with 0:00.5 left and shot a 3-pointer with Eric Bledsoe being totally fooled.

"All of our guys have to be ready to go out and defend and play at a higher level than what we did tonight", Prunty said. They gave up the next seven points and couldn't get back to even again, with a three point deficit their high water mark over the final two and a half quarters as Boston pulled away.

I'll admit it, Game 1 got me a little anxious.

The Celtics' bench also came up big, outscoring their Milwaukee counterparts 41-25. He's the guy who has outplayed you in the first two games of the series. Bledsoe, who was among Coach John Calipari's first recruiting class at United Kingdom in 2009-10, had 12 points and four assists. By comparison, Rozier is at 23 ppg, 3.5 ppg, 5.5 rpg and zero turnovers per game. Game 2 blew past the number thanks to hot shooting by both sides. They're a dog in this spot and have played well in that role this season, going 19-5 ATS and 14-10 SU. A 13-0 Milwaukee run tied the game at 35 with 8:47 remaining in the half. Shane Larkin also had 11 points to score double-digits in a playoff game for the first time in his National Basketball Association career. Game 1 against the Milwaukee Bucks was his first career start in a playoff game.

Game 3 is Thursday as the series shifts to San Antonio. "Drew Bledsoe makes tough shots and we just try to limit them to what they're good at by just being long off the ball and showing our presence and I felt like we did a great job with that the majority of the game".

Bledsoe, who is quiet in nature, pretended not to know who Rozier was, asking "who?" when the name was brought up to his attention and Rozier later responded by saying calling Eric Bledsoe by former National Football League pro-bowler's name - Drew Bledsoe.
