Rozier downplays any bad blood with Bledsoe

Jaylen Brown had a playoff career-high 30 points and the Boston Celtics pulled away in the second half to earn a 120-106 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night in Boston.

Terry Rozier helped the Boston Celtics jump ahead of the Milwaukee Bucks 2-0 in the best-of-seven series on Tuesday, but the Kyrie Irving understudy is still an unknown to the enemy. Marcus Morris led Boston's reserves with 18 points.

Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 30 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists. The third-year guard has had back-to-back games where he's dropped 23 points on the Bucks, and thus far, the Celtics have a 2-o lead on their opponent.

Before the Celtics hit the practice floor on Thursday to prepare for Friday night's Game 3 in Milwaukee, Rozier downplayed any disdain between the two players. "Teams been writing us off all year and we just keep proving them wrong, so that's what we're going to do".

"I just got that confidence", Rozier said.

Rajon Rondo had 16 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists for the Pelicans, who host the Blazers on Thursday as the series shifts to New Orleans.

"Who?" Bledsoe responded, after being asked "how personally" he took the matchup against the opposing point guard.

When the Celtics went off the rails over the first 7:39 of the second quarter, succumbing to a 26-4 Milwaukee run, Larkin was pouring gas on the fire with three straight turnovers, including two bad passes and an out of bounds violation. But that doesn't mean they can't make a dent in the Eastern Conference on the way to the NBA Finals.

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

"I don't even know who the [expletive] that is", Bledsoe said. "Some guys showed some things, some guys did not, but in a series, in the postseason, you have to be ready to play right when you step on the floor".

The All-Star was on the bench for game one, encouraging his teammates from the sidelines but was absent for game two and looked to inspire them with his words before the contest.
