Everything you need to know from the Bucks' win over the Celtics at TD Garden on Wednesday night in quickie form.


Kyrie Irving struggles: Opposing defenses can key in a lot more now on Kyrie Irving with Gordon Hayward sidelined and it showed already in game two of the regular season. Boston's new All-Star point guard struggled mightily with his shot in the second half within an offense that lacked ball movement. He shot 3-of-17 from the field after intermission, finishing the game with just 17 points on 25 shot attempts.

Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier flash promise again: I don't think anyone could have predicted the second-year forward would lead the Celtics in scoring for the first two games of the regular season but Brown was an efficient force yet again on Wednesday night. Brown scored 18 points in just 28 minutes (6-of-11 FG, 2-of-3 3pt) before fouling out in the final two minutes of the third quarter. Terry Rozier stuffed the box score and brought energy off the bench as well (15 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists) to help keep the shorthanded Celtics competitive on a terrible shooting night from Irving.
