The Milwaukee Bucks defense

Or, I should say the lack of defense from the Milwaukee Bucks.

In the second half of Game 2, the Celtics got whatever they wanted. If they wanted a layup, they got a layup. When the Bucks went on mini-runs, the Celtics offense was allowed easy bucket after easy bucket. I guess I have to thank the Bucks for allowing the C’s to take a load off on the offensive end so they can work even harder on defense.

Boston scored 113 points or more just 15 times in the regular season. They did it without Kyrie Irving just twice. Now, in the first two games of the playoffs, they have done nothing but score 113 points or more.

Jaylen Brown had a career high (more on that in a second). Rozier is playing like a scoring point guard. Al Horford, the 12-5-5 guy, is averaging 20 points in the first two games. You know your defense is bad when someone who gets made fun of for not scoring points is scoring a lot of points.
