Even with all that, the biggest reason why the Celtics have a 2-0 advantage is the multitude of turnovers the Bucks have committed. In two games, Milwaukee has 35 turnovers. To give you some meaningless stats that put this in perspective, the Pacers and Cavs combined for seven fewer turnovers in Game 1 of their series. Two teams in the playoffs have less than 3 times the amount of turnovers that Milwaukee has so far. The Celtics total points off turnovers (48) is more than the Rockets, Pacers, Timberwolves, and Jazz combined (47).

Giving up the ball is not good, Milwaukee. However, I don’t think anyone here in Boston would mind if you keep doing it.  Tatum, Shane Larkin, Brown, and Horford would be happy to keep picking off passes and getting easy buckets.
