Second Half

Topics (Cont’d):

–Ty Lue on Kyle Korver’s reduced minutes:

“Well, initially, he’s been putting [Semi] Ojeleye in, so that’s been kind of Kyle’s matchup when he comes in the game. He didn’t play him tonight, so it kind of threw us for a loop. But we got Bron out with two-and-a-half minutes, and at the start of the fourth he wasn’t ready to go. The same thing happened I think Game 1 or 2; I can’t remember.”

–Brad Stevens’ powers only work at home?

–Are we destined for 7 in East Finals?

Update on Sterling Brown: Milwaukee Police apologized to Brown and announced the suspensions for the officers involved. Video footage of the incident was released yesterday.
