Celtics coach Brad Stevens teases Gordon Hayward return for Bucks clash

Celtics coach Brad Stevens teases Gordon Hayward return for Bucks clash

Guerschon Yabusele. Yabusele, a DNP-CD in Sunday's Game 1 win.

Hard to imagine why he might feel that way, except for the whole "that guy's been summarily outplaying me" thing.

"I went back and watched some film with coach". Kyrie Irving goes down?

When told of Bledsoe's post-game remarks, Rozier simply told ESPN, "I'm not feeding into that". Okay. Marcus Smart still out after thumb surgery? 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. In Game 2 that meant a 5-for-13 shooting performance from the field.

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.

You can't blame Antetokounmpo or Middleton for the Bucks' 0-2 hole. We'll see if he can back it up but the Celtics have other youngsters - like Jayson Tatum - who could step up. Get in his chest, and he'll blow right by you.

Turnovers were an issue for the second straight game for Milwaukee. "He's impossible to guard". And not only that, but point guard Eric Bledsoe is having a very tough series.

But the Bucks' supposed third-and-fourth best players, Eric Bledsoe and Jabari Parker, have been nonexistent. Basically, Rozier is the best point guard in this series.

Of course, the natural answer to Bledsoe's confusion - whether real or feigned - as Charlie Barkley succinctly put it, is that Rozier is "the guy who's kicking your ass". The Bucks didn't get closer than three the rest of the way. The Bucks were able to get back within 11 when a Horford jumper and Larkin drive made it 87-75 with 26.0 seconds to play. "Teams been writing us off all year and we just keep proving them wrong, so that's what we're going to do". "I don't even think it's amusing". "When we run, we want to run and try to get layups and easy baskets". However, he must prove he can play reliable minutes against a well-drilled Celtics team that can expose his defensive deficiencies.

Boston's obit has been written, more than once, but this team just refuses to die. Almost two years ago, Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck stood on the TD Garden floor to announce the team was picking Brown, and the boos echoed through the arena. He should be a good candidate to bounce right back, though, and the Bucks will be that much more unsafe with their star point guard playing the way he's usually capable of.

"He's not gonna join us in Milwaukee", Stevens said. "I think he really appreciated the opportunity to compete on this stage and at this level".
