Wizards forward Markieff Morris said of his first-quarter shoving match with Toronto forward OG Anunoby that resulted in a double technical: “It wasn't really a scuffle. I felt like he really went high with his elbow. That's what really got me started. We needed some physicality. I felt like when we played them in Toronto they did everything too freely. So this is me trying to set the tone for how we need to play the whole series, especially on Sunday.”

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.

Lance Stephenson on the job Bojan Bogdanovic did on offense (30 points) and defending LeBron: "He did an excellent job. I'll give him an 100 on the test. He did a good job on LeBron and hit open shots. Attacked. We seen he could do that throughout the the season. But for him to do that in the playoffs is amazing. Bogey manned up."

Scott Brooks on what might have been the difference with Marcin Gortat (16 points) after the first two games: "[He got an] age-appropriate haircut [and got rid of the mohawk]."

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.

Thon Maker has been huge for the Bucks off the bench tonight. He has six points in 13 minutes — and he's brought a huge amount of energy to the game. He is blocking shots and playing with purpose. His performance begs the question: Why didn't he get more of a chance to play in Games 1 and 2?

Serge Ibaka and John Wall had a running dialogue during a Raptors trip to the free throw line. Wall wasn't happy with Ibaka knocking him to the floor earlier.

Milwaukee crowd goes bonkers as Aaron Rodgers is shown on the JumboTron.

Early in Games 1 and 2 it was the Bucks who turned the ball over a lot and looked a little unsettled at times by the noise. In Game 3 it's the Celtics who look totally disoriented. Boston has turned the ball over eight times and can't find any kind of rhythm.
