  • Celtics Come Down With A Case Of The Turnovers, Bucks Take Game 3, 116-92

It's the continuation of a first-round Eastern Conference playoff matchup as the series carries on in Brew City.

The Milwaukee Bucks dominated the Boston Celtics in just about every facet during their 116-92 win in Game 3 of their first-round National Basketball Association playoff series Friday night. Brogdon, who missed two months late in the season with a quad injury, scored five points but helped limit the Celtics' backcourt of Rozier and Jaylen Brown (11 points). Game 1 went down to the wire before Boston won in overtime, and the Celtics were the ones who controlled Game 2 from start to finish.

After losing the first two games in Boston, head coach Joe Prunty called on Maker to provide some much-needed energy and rim protection in Game 3 on Saturday (AEDT). The Bucks will look to even the series at 2 on Sunday with a noon tip-off scheduled. The Celtics went into the contest unchanged. The Celtics hit 23 3-pointers in their two wins, and it was a huge difference in those games. The Celtics did win the rebounding battle 45-37 and grabbed 17 offensive boards but it didn't matter: the team turned the ball over 18 times and had 13 shots blocked. He almost achieved a triple-double in each game too, suggesting that he may really look to take over Game 3 and lead the Bucks to a big home victory. Dellavedova was in on a need basis, dictated by the damage being done through two games by Boston point guard Terry Rozier.

"We realized how important this game was", Giannis Antetokounmpo told reporters after avoiding a 3-0 series deficit. If they fall on Sunday, there's a solid chance the Celtics will close them out in Game 5.

The Bucks have been notoriously slow at the beginning of games and after halftime.

- Bucks forward Khris Middleton has hit 12 of his 19 3-point shots in this series. They made nearly 40 percent of their 3-pointers in Boston - they just didn't take enough of them.

Amid non-stop chants of "Fear the Deer" and the renewed confidence of a Bucks team back on familiar hardwood, the Celtics offense crawled into a shell last night.

On the night, Knris Middleton scored a game-high 23 points. Rozier ended up with just nine points, two rebounds, nine assists, and two steals on 2-7 shooting with five turnovers. Bledsoe finished with 17 points, four rebounds, and four assists, on 8-13 shooting with only one turnover. He got extended run with John Henson out of the mix with a sore back and took advantage. We've got a young team and didn't know what to expect.
