Bucks' Parker: Playoff playing time 'cut short'

He scored two points on 1-for-5 shooting in Game 1, and Milwaukee was outscored by 14 points when he was on the court. The Celtics have decisive edges in offensive rebounding (20-12) and second-chance points (42-13) going into Game 3. Hopefully we can get this first one, then work for the second one, and then go back there.

Baynes might have nightmares after he got slam bammed on by The Greek Freak in the middle of the third.

Parker, who played 15 minutes in Game 1 and 10 in Game 2, is 1-for-7 from the field but hopeful that he will be given longer stretches of minutes by interim head coach Joe Prunty.

The Celtics scored 32 points in the quarter and hit six 3-point shots - a huge improvement over the first half when they totaled just 35 points through 25 minutes.

But even as Boston benefited from a few extra trips to the free throw sooner than usual, Milwaukee maintained control of the game courtesy of some red-hot shooting which paved the way for Milwaukee's 27-12 lead after the first quarter, a quarter in which Boston missed 16 of its 18 shot attempts. Antetokounmpo's numbers were down by his standards, but he still recorded 19 points, six assists and five rebounds.

Baynes was one of the Celtics' best with eight points and eight rebounds. Washington led by as many as 22 points, at 98-76, late in the third, which ended 101-82. He also attempted seven throws and was a team-best plus-23. It's all fine. I just have to do a better job responding, and we all have to do a better job responding.
