Jaylen Brown had a playoff career-high 30 points and the Boston Celtics pulled away into second half to earn a 120-106 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night.

The Milwaukee Bucks point guard, who tweeted his way out of the desert all the way back in November, looked frequently disconnected and at times even baffled during his team's Sunday loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of their best-of-seven first-round series.

And the Bucks' defensive effort was nearly non-existent, especially against Boston point guard Terry Rozier, who matched his Game 1 total with 23 points.

Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 30 points, nine rebounds and eight assists. Tuesday's game he wasn't much better offensively with Rozier guarding him the majority of the game en route to 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting in 34 minutes.

Before the Celtics hit the practice floor on Thursday to prepare for Friday night's Game 3 in Milwaukee, Rozier downplayed any disdain between the two players. He missed eight of his 12 shots, posted five turnovers against four assists, and fouled out in overtime as the short-handed Celtics escaped with a victory.

Asked about Bledsoe's comments on Thursday at media availability, Rozier told reporters he was moving on. After three rounds, he had totaled 85 points in 215 minutes. We'll get by. That's where Boston is right now: they won 55 games in the regular season and have taken a 2-0 lead in this series as the next guys up have stepped up.

Baynes finished the game with six points, six rebounds and two blocks.

Shane Larkin's buzzer-beating 3-pointer had Boston up 90-75 entering the fourth quarter. Antetokounmpo and Middleton have combined for 121 points in the first two games: the rest of the team has combined for 92.

"Who? I don't even know who the f- that is".

More specifically, he's having a tough time matching up against Boston's Terry Rozier.

The guard would inject the aggression and play-off experience Bucks interim coach Joe Prunty is seeking to turn the series around.

But if you're gonna factor in Middleton's points for Milwaukee, you have to throw in Jayson Tatum's 23 points in two games which would bring the final tally to 122-81, a staggering lopsided figure as well.

Some thought Bledsoe was irked by Rozier referring to him as Drew Bledsoe, the former New England Patriots quarterback, after Game 1.
