Stevens will go with the same starting five as Game 1

NBA: Playoffs-Milwaukee Bucks at Boston Celtics Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports

In his morning meeting with the media, Brad Stevens told reporters that Jaylen Brown is a game-time decision for Game 2 with a hamstring injury. He also said that if Brown plays in the game he will come off the bench, keeping Marcus Smart in the starting five.

Brown did not participate in yesterday’s practice but went through a running test today as well as some light shooting. This isn’t a major change to what Stevens said yesterday, but we will update this post when Brown’s final status is revealed.

The Celtics and Sixers tip off Game 2 at 8:30 p.m. EST as the Celtics try to go up 2-0 in this second round series with their rivals from Philadelphia.
