The Boston Celtics beat the Milwaukee Bucks 120-106 to go up on the series 2-0. Jaylen Brown had strong showing with 30 points on 12-22 shooting. The Celtics made it a point to simplify things on the offensive end during Game 2 at TD Garden, and it paid off incredibly. Boston displayed phenomenal ball security, committing just five individual turnovers. 

Terry Rozier who matched up with Bledsoe scored 23 points on 8-14 while Bledsoe had a rough night, scoring 12 points on 5-13 shooting in 34 minutes of play. Rozier in particular was incredibly secure with the rock. Boston’s starting point guard did not commit a single turnover, marking the second straight game he has achieved that feat, despite the fact that he is leading the NBA in postseason touches per game. 

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton have been lights out in both games, combining for 55 points in the losing effort tonight. But Milwaukee has struggled for production from the rest of its not-very-deep roster, and point guard Eric Bledsoe, with his 9-for-25 total shooting, has been an especially weak link.

Game 3 will be on Friday, April 20, 2018 in Milwaukee, WI the Bucks will have to have to other players outside of Giannis and Kris step up hint hint Eric Bledsoe.
