Terry Rozier on whether Eric Bledsoe can motivate him for Game 3: “He can't motivate me. He don't motivate me at all. Even the negative stuff [about the Celtics' postseason chances] when you turn on ESPN, they wasn't motivating me before the playoffs started. I already motivated myself so they were too late. ... We're not really worried about what nobody's saying. Our opponent's still gotta go through us between the lines. And I meant that."

Brad Stevens before Game 3 in Milwaukee: "It's a ton of fun to play at home in the playoffs but it's a ton of fun to play on the road if you're a competitor. And one of the things that I want our guys to do is really kinda relish the challenge of getting a chance to play on the road against a really good team."

Andrelton Simmons shows, once again, why nobody does it better. Dives to his left and glove-flips to second to start an inning-ending 6-4-3 double play. Great turn by Ian Kinsler to get Eduardo Nunez, who is not slow.

OK, it's only the 18th game for Boston, but Mookie Betts is at .400/.493/.817 after hitting his second leadoff home run of the series against the Angels and that's an awesome line. He already has 21 runs, tied with Johnny Pesky (1950) and Ted Williams (1942) for most by a Red Sox player through 18 games.
