f2f1e449fe93a140eb83c8ba4814cc9f

Allen got that chance on Tuesday in Boston's 106-102 loss at Milwaukee, courtesy of injuries and illnesses which continue to ravage the Celtics roster with the latest victim being Terry Rozier (left ankle) who is questionable for Wednesday's game at Toronto. "It felt good to get your first career start in the NBA," Allen, who played a career-high 23 minutes, told reporters after scoring two points on 1-for-4 shooting to go with two rebounds, one steal and one blocked shot. Allen, drafted by the Celtics with the 53rd overall pick in last June's NBA draft in large part because of his potential defensively, has spent most of this season with the Maine Red Claws of the NBA's Gatorade League.

Jaylen Brown: Whether it was pulling up for jumpers, going to the rim or being rewarded with free throws, Jaylen Brown delivered a solid performance for the Celtics. Khris Middleton: His shot-making early on set the tone for the Bucks, with the Celtics never really getting him under control.
