After taking control of Game 2, the Celtics looked like a completely different team Friday night against the Bucks.

Maker pulled off four spectacular blocks in four minutes and Dellavedova delivered the aggressive defence his squad had lacked to electrify the Milwaukee crowd and give the Bucks a 27-12 first quarter lead. The Celtics would draw no closer than 14 over the final three quarters.

"This will not be the last game", said Terry, referring to Sunday's Game 4 tilt against the Celtics.

Tom Westerholm of MassLive relayed comments Morris made to reporters about potentially being targeted by the referees. He also scored seven straight points during an important stretch of the third quarter when Giannis went to the bench and the Celtics were threatening.

"It's going to be a hostile environment", rookie Jayson Tatum told reporters during shootaround.

Milwaukee's Australian centre Thon Maker has played a starring role in the Bucks' NBA playoff win. Defensively, Milwaukee forced 18 turnovers, leading to 20 points, and blocked 13 Boston shots.

Parker, who averaged 12.6 points during the regular season, had been held to two points on 1-of-7 shooting over the first two games of the series.

Amy Conners, an attorney for Schulenberg, said the doctor didn't prescribe painkillers expecting Prince would consume them. Schulenberg and asked if he could provide Prince with some pain medication as his hip was causing him pain.

Rozier finished the night with five turnovers, while sniffing a double-double with nine points and nine boards.

"We realized how important this game was". "First road game in the playoffs and it got loud". "They punched us in the mouth early". The tables turned, however, in Game 3.

The Bucks had trouble finding offense outside of Antetokounmpo and Middleton, but their defense really fuelled their offense as you could just see their confidence growing as the game wore on. "Everybody that played came in ready to go", Antetokounmpo said.

Rozier said that the Celtics took some early "punches to the mouth" and never responded.

By the time halftime rolled around, most Green Teamers were probably asking if it was okay to forget about this game already.

The Bucks entered Friday's game in Milwaukee down 0-2 in the best-of-seven series and Maker and Dellavedova had seen scant court time in the two losses.
