Milwaukee Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe says he doesn't even know who the fuck Terry Rozier is, but he might want to figure that out sooner than later because the Celtics' point guard has been on a roll in the first two games of the series. Marcus Morris contributed 18 points, veteran Al Horford chipped in 16 points and 4 assists, Greg Monroe had 12 points and 4 boards, and Shane Larkin finished with 11 markers and 3 assists.
The Bucks got a second consecutive fantastic game from Giannis Antetokounmpo, who scored 30 on 13-of-17, including eight assists and nine rebounds.
"Boston, from the jump, I felt they played harder", Bucks interim head coach Joe Prunty said.
TORONTO (AP) - DeMar DeRozan matched his career playoff-high with 37 points, Jonas Valanciunas had 19 points and 14 rebounds and the Raptors beat the Wizards, taking a 2-0 lead in a playoff series for the first time in franchise history.
Boston had just three turnovers through three quarters and only seven on the night. It is a sad way for his tenure to end but on a Bucks roster, but with enough scoring in Middleton and Antetokounmpo, there just isn't need for Parker's empty calorie additions, especially against a team as disciplined and well-executing as the Celtics have been through two games.
Milwaukee's bench group was outscored 41-25 in the contest.

Boston, for all the names they are missing, keep epitomizing the next man up mentality that makes professional sports entertaining.
Game 3 is Thursday as the series shifts to San Antonio.
Through two playoff games, Rozier is averaging 23 points-per-game on 46.9 percent shooting from the field and 50 percent from beyond the arc. A minute into his first career playoff game, in came Yabusele, hurling his body out of bounds to save a loose ball, flipping it back to Rozier for an open three. That's when the playoff pressure is supposed to become too much, when the team with the best player (Antetokounmpo) is supposed to win, when the escape in Game 1 is revealed as lucky and the blown lead as a bad omen we should have seen.
"I don't even know who the f- that is", he added. Game 3 is set for Friday night. However, he must prove he can play reliable minutes against a well-drilled Celtics team that can expose his defensive deficiencies. They've had far less than the Bucks in both games and that's helped significantly.
