Boston Celtics: 3 takeaways from Game 2 vs

Jaylen Brown poured in 30 points as the Boston Celtics cruised to a 120-106 win over the Milwaukee Bucks in game two of their first-round playoff series on Tuesday night at TD Garden in Boston.

And the Bucks' defensive effort was nearly non-existent, especially against Boston point guard Terry Rozier, who matched his Game 1 total with 23 points. Meanwhile, Terry Rozier finished with 23 points while Marcus Morris chipped in with 18 off the bench.

Giannis Antetokounmpo paced Milwaukee with 30 points, nine rebounds and eight assists after leading all scorers with 35 in Game 1.

Among Rozier's 23 points in that series opener was a step-back three-pointer with.5 seconds left that appeared to have won the game for the Celtics in Boston.

The series now shifts to Milwaukee for games three and four. "We've just got to more into it, got to be the more desperate, hungry team". 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.

In the first two games, the Celtics have done a good job letting the supporting cast of the Bucks beat them rather than their stars.

The error message adds, 'Thanks for noticing-we're going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon'. Twitter users rushed to Facebook to comment on the crash, many using the hashtag #TwitterDown.

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.

Turnovers were an issue for the second consecutive game for Milwaukee. "I know they're going to come out and make adjustments".

Hard to imagine why he might feel that way, except for the whole "that guy's been summarily outplaying me" thing. "We will regroup and head back home for Game 3". He scored 30 points and was a terror for most of the game. Shane Larkin chipped in 11 points, scoring in double-digits for the first time in a playoff game. Bledsoe is 4-of-13 when guarded by Rozier.

"I don't even know who the [expletive] that is", Bledsoe said. Milwaukee is becoming overly reliant on two guys and it's cost them in the first two games of the series. However, he must prove he can play reliable minutes against a well-drilled Celtics team that can expose his defensive deficiencies.

Despite not being able to take to the floor alongside his teammates in the playoffs, Irving is still having a positive effect on them and helping them to win games.

Toronto, which made a team playoff record 16 3-pointers Saturday, connected on 12 of 32 from long range in Game 2, making only one in the second half.
