National Basketball Association has rescinded technical fouls for Celtics' Terry Rozier, Bucks' Thon Maker

I mean, I've never even watched "Workaholics".

"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". This young team just wants to get back to work. He balanced running the offense with finding his own shot, an equilibrium that some times escaped him in the regular season.

The Bucks blistered the nets as they shot a scorching 59.7 percent from the field in the contest, including seven of 17 from three point range. But don't say that to second year small forward Jaylen Brown. If Milwaukee just managed to rebound the ball better and not turn it over so often, they would be able to beat a Celtics roster that struggled to score.

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

The odds Celtics coach Brad Stevens would be asked about Bledsoe's comments were high in a conference call with reporters on Wednesday. There were also several New England Patriots seated on the sideline and the crowd, including team owner Robert Kraft, Julian Edelman, Duron Harmon, James White and Kyle Van Noy.

In Rozier's first year at Louisville, he averaged 7.0 points and 3.1 rebounds through 37 games, and was named to the 'AAC All-Rookie Team'. "Defensively, just play long, show your arms".

"She told me she'd rather me be here than back there", Smart said. After Antetokounmpo rested midway through the quarter, Yabusele and Monroe matched up on him until Morris took over midway through the second quarter.

Baynes also had six points and two blocks. Morris is averaging nearly 20 points a game.

Up 2-0, a second-round matchup would see the Celtics face either Philadelphia or Miami.

The game started in eerily similar fashion to the first, as Milwaukee was unable to secure defensive rebounds and repeatedly gave the ball away. However, Khris Middleton threw up a prayer and it went in to tie the game at the buzzer. And, as the coach has stressed, Larkin's defense has been consistently good over the first two games. Through two games, he's had 21 total points on 9-for-25 (36 percent) shooting, which isn't what anyone would expect out of a player of Bledsoe's caliber.

The Celtics were led, in part, by point guard Terry Rozier.

The next closest Celtic in scoring was point guard Terry Rozier, who poured in 23 to go with eight assists.

He knows who Rozier is - even if many National Basketball Association fans don't quite yet.

You'd have to assume Bledsoe is playing coy because he's certainly heard Rozier's name plenty during the series.
