Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe has not played very well in his team’s first two playoff games against the Boston Celtics, and his squad is now down 0-2 in the series. Bledsoe is shooting just 36 percent from the field in the series, and has been thoroughly outplayed by Boston’s backup-turned-starting point guard, Terry Rozier. You may recall Rozier embarrassing the hell out of Bledsoe before hitting a clutch shot late in Game 1.
Rozier was good again in Game 2 (23 points on 14 shots and eight assists) while Bledsoe was not (12 points on 13 shots and four assists). Bledsoe was asked about Rozier’s strong performance after the game, and somehow thought he was in a position to dismiss his counterpart as a nameless scrub:
Man... he’s beating you! Badly! You can’t.... you can’t do that!
