KXIP vs KKR Live Score

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.

But if Bledsoe is truly focused on helping the Bucks get out of a 2-0 series hole against Boston, he should probably learn who the Celtics starting point guard is. Meanwhile, Terry Rozier finished with 23 points while Marcus Morris chipped in with 18 off the bench.

For Milwaukee, Giannis Antetokounmpo wtih 30 points and Krhis Middleton with 25 seem to be the only scorers.

Despite missing Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward for the playoffs, many people expected the Boston Celtics to beat the Milwaukee Bucks in a hard-fought series that might go the distance.

Game 3 will be Friday night as the series shifts to Milwaukee, but it's safe to say that it's a must win game for the Bucks, as no team in National Basketball Association history has come back to win a series down 0-3.

"All of our guys have to be ready to go out and defend and play at a higher level than what we did tonight", Prunty said.

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

"They're very tall and athletic, so just move the ball offensively and get great shots", Rozier said Sunday evening.


"I'm not going to be a guy who can play slow and back a guy down and then pick him up at the 3-point line". He's recorded zero turnovers in two games.

"We're confident as ever", Brown told reporters after the game. He's averaging 23 points in the two games and has yet to commit a turnover.

The Celtics knew they'd need their younger players to step up this postseason with Kyrie Irving sidelined for the postseason.

Washington host game three on Friday night.

Boston came out with a blistering energy for Game 2 that mostly held from the opening tap all the way to the half.

Tuesday marked the ninth straight game that Antetokounmpo has scored at least 20 points against the Celtics.

Bledsoe, who is quiet in nature, pretended not to know who Rozier was, asking "who?" when the name was brought up to his attention and Rozier later responded by saying calling Eric Bledsoe by former National Football League pro-bowler's name - Drew Bledsoe.

As Stephen Curry remains out likely for the entire series nursing a sprained left knee, the defending champions used all the offensive power they had to take both home games in the best-of-seven series. "Just play harder and do whatever it takes to help this team be successful".
