The Milwaukee Bucks title defense came to an end Sunday afternoon in Boston on what ended up being a more lopsided affair than most had hoped. After a first quarter that gave Bucks fans hopes, the Celtics used the next three quarters to assert that they would be the ones moving on to the Eastern Conference Finals by winning 109-81. Let’s grade the performances.

Grades from Milwaukee Bucks season-ending loss to Boston: Second Unit

Second Unit: D

Bobby Portis was the more effective of the pair of bench players in the Milwaukee Bucks rotation, Bobby finished with 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting and 2-for-3 on 3-point shots, however also had three turnovers. Bobby also grabbed six rebounds, a steal and a block. Portis has a player option for this upcoming season, whether or not this was his last game as a Buck remains to be seen.

Pat Connaughton for as good as he had been during this series, played his worst game of the entire postseason, Pat went 1-for-6 including 0-for-5 behind the 3-point line, Pat’s final stat line was two points, six rebounds and two assists.

George Hill was the only other bench player to log relevant minutes before the starters were pulled, Hill played 11 minutes and didn’t take a shot but registered two rebounds and a turnover and still finished with the second highest plus/minus of the rotational players at -7.
