AUSTRALIAN duo Thon Maker and Matthew Dellavedova have inspired the Milwaukee Bucks to a 116-92 demolition of the Boston Celtics. Eric Bledsoe and Jabari Parker each added 17 for the energized Bucks, who held the Celtics without a field goal for almost an 11-minute stretch of the first half.
The Bucks jumped out to a 16-6 lead in the first half of the opening quarter, led by 12 combined points from Antetokounmpo and Middleton.

In Games 1 and 2, Milwaukee's impact players were Antetokounmpo and Middleton. "Jabari included. We've talked a lot about starts of games".
"For me he is like my little brother", Antetokounmpo said.
Following his fantastic performance in Game 2's 120-106 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in which he scored 23 points on 8-for-14 shooting from the field, Rozier got the attention of Instagram hottie and Miss Kentucky beauty pageant contestant, Christen McAllister. Antetokounmpo's numbers were down by his standards, but he still recorded 19 points, six assists and five rebounds. And the Bucks ran the Celtics off the floor without their star having a dominant night.
He added, "We need Jabari". However, the former No. 2 overall pick admits he needs to adjust his mindset going forward.

The 7-foot-1 Maker, in particular, provided a huge boost to help Milwaukee counter what had been a decisive edge off the bench for the Celtics.

Almost everything else went Milwaukee's way, too.
Rozier, the cocky foil of Bucks guard Bledsoe, said, "They had the crowd behind them and they played hard".
Rozier certainly is but Bledsoe has done anything but. With about six minutes left, Brad Stevens sent in his bench, signaling the end of 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.
