The Bucks will need much more from their bench, their role players and Jabari Parker especially in their effort to win Game 2 in Boston tonight.
In his first career playoff game, Parker finished with two points on 1-of-5 shooting and was minus-14 in his 14 ½ minutes of action. He had a couple shots blocked inside and didn't knock down either of his shots outside the paint. He was on the floor during the Celtics’ 15-0 run to close the first quarter and never got into a rhythm from there. “I think for him just getting into a good rhythm when he gets out on the floor," Bucks’ coach Joe Prunty said. "First playoff game, that’s not always easy. I think for him there’s a lot of things that you can do, just like anybody else.” His teammates also offered words of encouragement following his first playoff experience while Giannis said that he expects him to be more aggressive tonight.
