Charles Barkley had a pointed response to Eric Bledsoe's Terry Rozier comment

ONE DOWN 15 TO GO Terry Rozier celebrates with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown throws down a dunk during the Celtics’ 113-107 overtime win against the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of the playoffs yesterday at the Garden. Staff

Despite missing Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward for the playoffs, many people expected the Boston Celtics to beat the Milwaukee Bucks in a hard-fought series that might go the distance. But the Celtics responded with an 11-2 run, capped by a banked in 3-pointer by Brown to push their lead back up to 118-99.

The Pacers are very close to the Bucks statistically in terms of both pace and threes attempted, but were four wins better thanks in part to a better defense.

A Jayson Tatum drive and Monroe inside basket put the Celtics up 98-80 into a timeout with 8:47 left in the fourth. He is shooting 51.2 percent from the field including 41.2 percent from three. The Celtics were just 11 of 18 at the line but committed only five turnovers in the contest.

In his sophomore season as a Cardinal, he led the team in scoring with 17.1 points-per-game to go along with 5.6 rebounds and three assists. "I'm anxious about Celtics and Bucks, how can I help my team get past the first round?"

The best-of-seven first-round series moves to Milwaukee at 9:30 p.m. Friday and will be aired on ESPN. While Boston is doing it with the next man up, the Bucks can't get it done with their normal rotation. With four technical fouls over the last two seasons and 154 games, it seems unlikely that Rozier wouldn't keep his cool. "Again, first-quarter differential, similar to the other night". His true shooting - which includes free throws - rose from 53.9 to 56.2 percent. He has posted six double-digit games in just over the last month. Giannis Antetokounmpo led Milwaukee with 30 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in the loss.

It was a 10-point game when Morris pulled up for a jumper.

Syracuse University Fraternity Suspended Over Racist, Homophobic Footage
Theta Tau is not the first fraternity, nor Syracuse the first university, to be involved in a scandal involving racism or sexism. Syverud said, "The conduct is deeply harmful and contrary to the values and community standards we expect of our students".

Antetokounmpo, to his credit accepts responsibility not only for his shortcomings so far, but also for setting the tone moving forward as the Bucks try to claw their way back into the series. Take the points and the Celtics in this one.

Eric Bledsoe's first trip to the postseason in five years isn't exactly going the way he planned.

Asked postgame whether he was taking the matchup against Rozier personally, Bledsoe replied, "Who?"

There were moments on Tuesday where you could see him unveil new elements to his game. Granted, Game 1 elevated well past the total thanks to overtime but it exceeded the number on its own merits in regulation.

Despite not being able to take to the floor alongside his teammates in the playoffs, Irving is still having a positive effect on them and helping them to win games.

"[Irving] sent us a message before the game today, just telling us what to expect", said Shane Larkin.
