Though the Bucks have faced various difficulties throughout the first two games, Boston guard Terry Rozier has been wreaking as much havoc as anybody. When Bledsoe was asked specifically about Rozier following the game, the Kentucky product said he wasn’t even aware of who that is.

Though he’s only starting due to Kyrie Irving’s unavailability, Terry Rozier has tallied 23 points in each of the first two games and continues to be a tough matchup for Eric Bledsoe and the rest of the Bucks.
Obviously, Eric Bledsoe knows who Terry Rozier is but his response shows that he has clearly got under his skin. Bledsoe is widely viewed as the better player but Rozier has undoubtedly got the better of him thus far and that could continue to be the case as the series now heads to Milwaukee.
Comparatively, in the first two games, Bledsoe managed to post only 9-point and 12-point performances. His shooting marks don’t even approach forty percent but he was more involved in Game 2, getting his jumper in rhythm at least a little bit and knocking down a pair of triples.
Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo has done everything he can to keep the Bucks in this series but it’s up to the complementary pieces to come through. After two disappointing losses in Boston, Antetokounmpo, Bledsoe, and the Bucks hope a couple home games will get them right back into the series.
