  • Jabari Parker vows to be 'better person' and teammate going forward

For tonight's third game, Odds Shark has given the Milwaukee Bucks the consensus edge on the point spread.

The Bucks will have the opportunity to cut their series deficit in half Friday at home, while Game 4 will take place Sunday. "Jabari included. We've talked a lot about starts of games". Antetokounmpo's numbers were down by his standards, but he still recorded 19 points, six assists and five rebounds.

The Bucks were the aggressors all night long.

"We need him and everybody to be ready to go and step on the floor and play well", Prunty said.

Al Horford finished with 16 points, Greg Monroe scored 15 against his former team and Jayson Tatum had 14 for Boston.

Milwaukee players talked a lot about being more aggressive in Game 3, and this was evident by them picking up lots of personal fouls which put the Celtics into the bonus early.

"We already know they're going to come out aggressive", Rozier said before Thursday's practice.

Bucks starting center John Henson missed the game after being doubtful before tip-off with back soreness.

Almost everything else went Milwaukee's way, too.

"It's hard to play four minutes then sit out", Parker said. Bledsoe, outplayed by Rozier in the first two games, shot 8 of 13. Brad Stevens laid out what went wrong after the game. The Celtics posted a monster 113.2 offensive rating in the first two games in Boston, but they were due for a down game given their injury situation.

He pulled off four spectacular blocks in his first four minutes. He had nine assists.

The Celtics out-rebounded the Bucks, 45-37, but they slacked on ball control, as they turned the ball over 18 times, compared to the Bucks' nine.

Yikes. There are a few different angles from which to look at this, but let's start with the unfortunate reality: In his limited minutes in the first two playoff games of his career, Parker has not made a great case for more playing time. They were propelled by Jaylen Brown's 30 points along with Terry Rozier adding 23 in the effort.

Antetokounmpo has been a mentor for Maker and revealed a conversation he had with the young Sudanese-born, Australian-raised giant two weeks ago.

"We were on our heels the whole time and they did a good job of creating that", Stevens said of the Bucks defensive impact on the Celtics.

Maker was 3 of 4 from the 3-point line.

Parker also noted that he hasn't been told what he needs to do to get more minutes. "That's our goal. We've got to pay attention to details". "We've just got to find our rhythm and play with pace".

"There's nothing about me and Bledsoe". I'm just trying to help the team win. He shot 10 of 17 from the field and cashed jumpers from all over the floor.
