Raptors, Celtics easily secure game-two wins

ONE DOWN 15 TO GO Terry Rozier celebrates with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown throws down a dunk during the Celtics’ 113-107 overtime win against the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of the playoffs yesterday at the Garden. Staff

The Bucks didn't get closer than three the rest of the way.

The swish pushed the Celtics lead to 14 points and that was the end of that.

Jaylen Brown had 30 points on 12-of-22 shooting Tuesday night.

Celtics guard Jaylen Brown led the way with 30 points and five other Boston players scored in double figures.

Bledsoe is averaging 10.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 turnovers over 33.4 minutes per game.

"Kyrie talked to us before the game, just kind of let us know what to expect, a lot of things to expect, and for us to stay locked in, and not worry about if we hit some adversity or whatever, just play through it", said Celtics big man Al Horford, per ESPN's Chris Forsberg.

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. While Boston is doing it with the next man up, the Bucks can't get it done with their normal rotation. He played with poise, finishing with zero turnovers for the second straight game.

We want them to be able to have their voices heard but have to balance that with their safety and security. April 20 is the event organized by students across the country as part of the National School Walkout .

Boston Marathon victor Desiree Linden was honored during a timeout in the first quarter.

The Bucks blistered the nets as they shot a scorching 59.7 percent from the field in the contest, including seven of 17 from three point range. "But ultimately we just want to win games and I think that's the only thing we're concerned with". Rozier then punctuated the first half with a breakaway dunk for a 60-51 lead Boston took into the break.

For Milwaukee, Giannis Antetokounmpo wtih 30 points and Krhis Middleton with 25 seem to be the only scorers. Along with a supporting cast featuring Eric Bledsoe, Jabari Parker, and Khris Middleton. 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. He proves he can take whatever roster he has and make magic out of them (See Isaiah Thomas). But Rozier has made himself the x-factor, an essential offensive focal point, the shimmering shamrock and the luck of the Irish (/Celtics).

Eric Bledsoe's first trip to the postseason in five years isn't exactly going the way he planned.

"We not taking anybody lightly", he said. Cavs role players will need to step up in game two after no-one else in the starting lineup besides James scored more than nine points on Sunday.

"I don't even know who the (expletive) that is", Bledsoe said.

Bucks: Have been outscored 42-13 in second-chance points through two games. Monroe started the year with the Bucks, went to the Suns and was plucked off the scrap heap by Boston around the All-Star break.
