Milwaukee responded just in time on Friday night to cut Boston’s lead to 2–1 and give itself a chance to tie the series when things resume on Sunday afternoon from Milwaukee.
Game 3 was crazy. It was fast, physical and loud inside the Bradley Center.
The Bucks made a couple adjustments. The first was to the rotation, which got longer with the addition of Thon Maker and Matthew Dellavedova, two guys who were healthy in Boston but didn’t get much run. Both were effective on Friday night.
And then Eric Bledsoe outplayed Terry Rozier this time. Bledsoe scored 17 and held Rozier to single-digits in the win. Kris Middleton led the Bucks with 23 points; Giannis had 19 and Jabari Parker matched Bledsoe’s 17.
This just looks like a series where it’s going to be a serious challenge for either team to win on the other’s home floor, though I think Milwaukee has a greater shot in Boston than Boston has in Milwaukee.
The Celtics did get a big game from Greg Munroe, who had used his knowledge of the Bucks and their system to help prepare his teammates for this series. Remember, he was dealt to Phoenix in the Eric Bledsoe trade before the Suns bought him out and he signed with the Celtics.
Jayson Tatum also had his best game of the series, but the Celtics got little from Jaylen Brown and Al Horford, the two guys who have to have big games every night if Boston wants to win.
It’s that onus on two guys who aren’t quite at that level that doesn’t make a a true believer in Boston. It could win this series; it could beat the Heat, too; but it can’t beat the top teams in the Eastern Conference and won’t make a run to the Finals unless it gets Milwaukee, Miami and Indiana, a draw that is still very possible.
You forget Jaylen Brown is just in his second season. What a perimeter Boston has set up for next seasons with he, Jayson Tatum and Gordon Hayward. I find it hard to believe they would need Kawhi Leonard.

The Bucks are going to have to be bad to blow things on their home floor. If Boston gets beat badly again, consider momentum shifted going back to the Bean for Game 5.
