Milwaukee Bucks: Grades from 116-92 Game 3 win over Boston Celtics


The Bucks' starting backcourt has been outscored 96-25 in the first two games by Boston's starting guard duo of Terry Rozier and Jaylen Brown.

Parker, who voiced displeasure this week after playing just 24 minutes over the first two games, was 7 of 12 from the field and played 30 minutes.

The teams turn their focus to Game 4, which will tip off at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday in Milwaukee. Boston drew first blood in the series by taking a 113-107 overtime win in Game 1 last Sunday afternoon: they followed up with a 120-109 home win in Game 2 Tuesday night.

Al Horford had 16 to lead the Celtics. He poured in 14 points and spaced the floor by hitting three of his four 3-point attempts.

It was a tough go for the Celtics in the first two quarters out in Milwaukee.
