The Bucks defense has been very solid so far today. It seems like most sets for the Celtics have ended in ISO's. Boston isn't getting much movement and is getting frustrated. Aside from Jaylen Brown, who has 14 points, Celtics haven't been able to get anybody else going to this point.

Jabari Parker, Matthew Dellavedova and Thon Maker have come off the bench and given the Bucks a nice jolt once again. The trio has nine points and has provided a boost for a Milwaukee team that came out a little flat to start this one. Bucks getting work done in the paint early — they are outscoring the Celtics 14-6 down low.

Nightmare finish to the first quarter for the Celtics, who botch a 2-for-1 then allow Bucks to score twice over the final 1.2 seconds, including a mental lapse that allowed Matthew Dellavedova a steal/layup at the buzzer.

The Rockets feel like they haven't come close to playing their best basketball, not only in this series, but Mike D'Antoni said today at practice that "it's been months." He added that it's a product of having the 1 seed virtually locked up since late January. James Harden agreed and said it's been awhile since they've put in a full 48 minute performance on both sides of the ball. Scary thought for the Wolves and the rest of the league.

Celtics guard Marcus Smart said his thumb will be reevaluated Tuesday in New York and he's hoping to be cleared for contact at that point. Smart said he could be available for a potential Game 6 against the Bucks, if cleared.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said he won't make any changes to his starting 5 for Game 4. Stevens said his team simply needs to match the intensity that Milwaukee displayed in Game 3. Stevens: “If intensity levels are at different levels you're not winning."

George Hill remains questionable for Game 4 because of back spasms. The good news is the MRI he underwent on Saturday revealed no structural damage. Tyronn Lue said he will start Jose Calderon at point guard if Hill cannot play, rather than just shift point guard duties onto LeBron James. "I don't want LeBron to have to do everything," Lue said at Sunday's shootaround. "Have to handle the ball and make the plays. It will be a stretch where LeBron will be playing the point, we know that for sure, but not to start the game."

Tyronn Lue said he thinks Game 4 will be the time to work Tristan Thompson into his rotation. "I can trust him," Lue said of Thompson. "I think Tristan can also get us extra possessions offensive rebounding. He brings toughness and that's been a problem last couple games. I think he brings toughness, rebounding, defense." Thompson has just two garbage-time minutes in the series so far. Last year, he averaged 8.2 points on 58.7 percent shooting, 8.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists, starting 18 games for Cleveland during its run to the Finals.
