As the playoffs approached, the Milwaukee Bucks thought they might catch a break by finishing seventh in the Eastern Conference, setting up a first-round series with the Boston Celtics, who'd go into the postseason without point guard Kyrie Irving. We've got a young team and didn't know what to expect.
Perilously close to elimination, the Bucks search for more effort and less drama (read here): With the Bucks' first round series with the Boston Celtics turning over to Milwaukee, the MilwaukeeJournal Sentinel's Matt Velazquez detailed an eventful media availability, which was highlighted by Jabari Parker's eye-opening comments.
Parker, who played 15 minutes in Game 1 and 10 in Game 2, is 1-for-7 from the field but hopeful that he will be given longer stretches of minutes by interim head coach Joe Prunty. The Celtics won the first two games of the series, and they've never lost in the playoffs after doing so on 35 prior occasions. "Going forward, I'm going to try and be a better person, be a better man and be there for my teammates".
With the Celtics' backcourt now banged up, Rozier is tasked upon by Boston to handle most of the point guard duties while Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart remain on the sidelines.
Parker has just two points in the series, while Antetokounmpo has registered 65 points and played a total of 88 minutes.
Antetokounmpo led all players with nine points in the opening 12 minutes. It's all fine. I just have to do a better job responding, and we all have to do a better job responding. They hit us in the mouth.

"We're coming out with the mind-set that we can forget about the taking care of home court". Eric Bledsoe, so disparaged for his two performances in Boston, came out firing and netted 17 points on 8-for-13 shooting. We're coming out and we're still going to be aggressive, because we're coming out to win. Punched us in the mouth, picked me up full. "And we will. It's simple". Al Horford had 16 points to lead Boston. But Khris Middleton stepped up and led the team in scoring with 23 points on 58.8 percent shooting from the field. From there they crawled into garbage time, and finished at an even.400 (32-for-80) for the night.
"I think a lot of guys brought energy but they definitely brought it when they entered the game and continued to make an impact across the board with Thon a lot of blocks and Delly with his intensity on the ball", Prunty said. We don't have time - our margin of error is not that big. Every time the C's threatened to get the deficit under 14, the Bucks battled back and hit shots. "Luckily it was only worth one".
