The Milwaukee Bucks have four days to figure out what went right in Game 1 and what went wrong in Game 2 of their split in the first two matchups in Boston. Milwaukee did their job of taking one game on the road but Tuesday night’s loss is sure to leave a sour taste in their mouths. Let’s grade the performances as the series shifts to Milwaukee.

Grading Milwaukee Bucks vs Boston Celtics Game 2: Second Unit

Second Unit: B

Pat Connaughton has strung together a few very solid performances in his last three playoff games after a slow start to his postseason. In his last three games, he made 16-of-24 field goals and 9-of-15 threes. One of the lone bright spots of Game 2, Pat Connaughton shot a very effective 6-for-7 and was effective in using his athleticism to get to the rim.

Opening round spark plug Grayson Allen was kept relatively quiet, though he is still shooting 50 percent on field goals early in this series, Grayson managed only five points in Game 2, moving forward he will need to rediscover the aggressiveness he came with during the Bulls series.

Jevon Carter despite not being expected to do much offensively except hit threes when you’re open seemed a bit thrown off his game in Game 2, he made the only shot he took and had one rebound, one assist, and one steal. The thing with Carter in Game 2 is he seemed unsure of himself and what he wanted to do and it led him to three turnovers. We know Carter will give the Bucks everything he’s got on defense, I’d like to see him trust himself more offensively in Game 3.
