BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Marcus Smart returned and made an immediate impact on both ends of the floor in the Celtics' Game 5 win over the Bucks Tuesday to help Boston to a 3-2 series lead.
Tonight's Game 6 in Milwaukee at 8 o'clock, and Terry Rozier said after the last W his group needs to pick up right where it left off.
"Definitely, this was a must-win for us," he said. "I think this was real important, now we need to get the next one. We know it won't be easy. Them guys play unbelievable at home. We gotta go over there and take their tendencies away. Stay together, stay together--that's the most important thing."
Home team's won all five games to date, so the C's have a tough task ahead in what may be the Bucks final game ever at the 30-year-old Bradley Center.
And, naturally, it's fun to wonder if there will be any more fireworks between Rozier and Eric Bledsoe after their verbal misunderstanding turned comical, then physical the last time out.
Rozier and Bledsoe didn't touch it, though.
"We're out there just having fun, that's all it is," Rozier joked.
"We're looking forward to Game 6, that's it," Bledsoe said.
No matter what happens, Celts will host a game at the Garden Saturday night. Either Game 7 against the Bucks, or Game 1 of the second round versus the Sixers.
