The Boston Celtics went up, 2-0, in their Eastern Conference first round playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night. Marcus Morris led Boston's reserves with 18 points.

Bucks All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo had 30 points, nine rebounds and eight assists but had little help, particularly from starting guards Eric Bledsoe and Tony Snell who combined for just 14 points.

At the post-media presscon, the “Greek Freak” was asked if his team has to play with more effort – an observation also seconded by his Bucks coach earlier. They gave up the next seven points and couldn't get back to even again, with a three point deficit their high water mark over the final two and a half quarters as Boston pulled away.

"We would've loved him to have had more game time [in the lead up], one game is not a lot, but he's worked extremely hard [to be healthy]". They have an excuse if they lose, so these players are leaving it all out there on the court. Rozier appeared in every game but two, and finished with 16 starts after the Celtics lost Kyrie Irving for the rest of the season. "Defensively, just play long, show your arms. We have seen him against the better teams in the league all year be able to really raise his level in some of his biggest games".
