Jason Terry, on his lasting memories of the Bradley Center -- making sure everyone knows he doesn't think Sunday's Game 4 will be the last one in the old arena. "No, this will not be the last game," Terry said after Saturday's practice. "I'll go on record and say this will not be the last game. "But my lasting memory of right now was the environment that I was a part of last night. Electric, electrifying. Aaron Rodgers sitting courtside, didn't know he was going to have ownership of the team, but just seeing him over there and the ovation that he got, it meant a lot. The whole entire Milwaukee community, it was electric. And I think that's something that they should think about carrying over into the new building. It should be like that -- because of the talent we have and the team we have and the support we have from upper management, this should be like this every single day. Regardless if it's playoffs, preseason, regular season, we should have that same electric environment."

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said Marcus Smart's thumb will be reevaluated next week and Smart could be cleared to return to all basketball activities at that point. Said Stevens: "I think once he's cleared to do a full-contact practice, he's cleared to play.” Stevens said Smart is doing everything but live action at the moment while rehabbing.

Thought Bledsoe gave an interesting answer while discussing how happy he was that Bucks interim head coach Joe Prunty picked up his first playoff win. "I'm very happy for him. He's in a tough position. He's trying to balance everybody's ego, so to speak. Because we've got a lot of talented guys on the team that want to play, that think they should be in. He's doing a great job of managing everyone's ego on the team."

Like many within the Bucks locker room, Eric Bledsoe was not surprised that Jabari Parker had a nice bounce back game after two lackluster performances against the Celtics. "Jabari's a special talent, man. All he's got to do is stick with it. Not get too high, not get too low. He played phenomenal tonight. We need him to play like that from here on out."

Bucks did what they had to do tonight. Played with passion and emotion, feeding off a charged up crowd. The key for them will be following that up on Sunday with the same intensity in a noon game. Can Thon Maker, Jabari Parker and Eric Bledsoe play with the same consistency — we'll see.

Just a dominant first half performance from the Bucks — they lead 58-35. As usual, it's Giannis and Middleton leading the way but Eric Bledsoe and Jabari Parker have played better early and are enjoying being back at home. The pair has a combined 16 points and are both +10 on the night. The Bucks defense has held the Celtics to shooting just 12-for-39 from the field.

Some of the cringeworthy numbers for the Celtics in the first half: Boston shot 30.8 percent overall, turned the ball over 14 times, and trailed by as much as 25.
