Brogdon generated five points (2-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists across 29 minutes during Milwaukee's 116-92 win over the Celtics in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.
Brogdon wasn't able to parlay his starting opportunity into any meaningful production, as he posted his worst shooting percentage and lowest scoring total of the first three games of the series. The 25-year-old naturally was much better than he showed Friday over the course of his injury-shortened season, and he still offers considerably higher upside than fellow two-guard Tony Snell. Therefore, it's likely Brogdon gets an opportunity for redemption when the two teams meet again for a pivotal Game 4 on Sunday.
Brogdon will get the start at shooting guard for Friday's Game 3 versus the Celtics, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.
With the Bucks down 0-2 in their first-round series against Boston, they will look to shake things up by replacing Tony Snell with Brogdon in the first-unit. The second-year guard has seen his role increase relatively quickly following his return from a lengthy absence, and figures to be in line for a healthy workload Friday.
Brogdan scored 16 points (6-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding four rebounds, three assists and a steal in 32 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 113-107 overtime loss to the Celtics in Game 1.
The second-year guard was supposed to be on a minutes restriction after returning from a two-month absence due to a quad injury at the end of the regular season, but coach Joe Prunty needed all hands on deck in overtime. Assuming Brogdan is none the worse for wear, expect him to handle a normal workload Tuesday in Game 2.
Brogdon has played two games since returning from a quad injury, playing 18 minutes in the most recent contest and 14 minutes in the prior contest. He'll presumably hover around 20-25 minutes for Game 1, though a range has not been officially stated by coach Joe Prunty. More information could arrive following Saturday's practice.
Brogdon totaled 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt), two rebounds, and two assists in 18 minutes during Wednesday's 130-95 loss to the 76ers.
Brogdon (quad) was much more aggressive in this one than he was in his first game back from the 30-game injury absence. With the playoffs set to begin this weekend, it's unclear how quickly the Bucks will ramp up Brogdon's playing time. Nevertheless, at this point he probably shouldn't be expected to see much more than 15-20 minutes in Game 1 against the Celtics.
