Terry Rozier's technical foul from Game 2 rescinded

Giannis Antetokounmpo

Former Cal Golden Bear Jaylen Brown put on a 30-point show for the Boston Celtics in Game 2 of the first-round playoff matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Bucks have no answers: While the Bucks have the best player on the floor in Antetokounmpo, the biggest advantage in the series is on the sidelines, and it has been clear in the first two games. A slight improvement from game 1 to 2 but when "some guy" named Terry Rozier manages to keep a consistent scoring total of 23 points for both games, you get the feeling that someone wasn't watching game tape going into game 2. Marcus Morris led Boston's reserves with 18 points.

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.

Remember, it was Bledsoe who was matched up on Rozier as the Celtics guard hit a clutch go-ahead 3 in Game 1.

Boston had just three turnovers through three quarters and only seven on the night.

The Bucks, however, have done nothing to demonstrate that they can slow down Rozier and break this great rhythm of the Celtics.

Milwaukee's bench group was outscored 41-25 in the contest. It can be tough to pay attention to each and every little minute detail, like the name and identity of the guy you spent 51 possessions guarding in Game 1, plus and a bunch more in Game 2. If not for Khris Middleton's heroics to force overtime, Bledsoe's defensive breakdown would have been a key storyline before Game 2.

She will serve her sentence at the Mary Wade Correctional Centre, a maximum security women's prison. Roberge was promised the ticket, $5,000 in spending money and more cash when she returned home.

Milwaukee will host games three and four and Celtics coach Brad Stevens warned his players not to relax.

"[Irving] sent us a message before the game today, just telling us what to expect", said Shane Larkin. Yabusele, who played 235 minutes in the regular season - and no more than a handful of them meaningful. A 13-0 Milwaukee run tied the game at 35 with 8:47 remaining in the half.

Early in Game 2, those same Bucks' struggles appeared again. 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.

With two days before the series resumes Friday night at the Bradley Center, the Bucks will have plenty of work to do but addressing their disturbing lack of urgency will be at the very top of Prunty's to-do list.

"Who? I don't even know who the f- that is".

Jaylen Brown certainly lead the way yesterday, with a tremendous 30 point performance, but Terry Rozier has been as important as anyone to this offense in two games.
