Looks like that switch the Celtics flipped when the playoffs started was a little faulty. With the exception of Marcus Morris (14 points and 11 rebounds) and a few hustle plays from the laboring Marcus Smart, this team may have had its worst showing in all of 2018-19 against the Bucks in the 116-91...
