Dellavedova returns from injury with Bucks down in playoffs

Matthew Dellavedova and the Milwaukee Bucks face a two- game deficit as they look to progress through the first round of the NBA playoffs.

The Bucks conceded an 0-2 advantage to the Boston Celtics in the best-of seven series on Wednesday as they fell to a 120-106 loss.

The Celtics controlled play from the outset and never relented, winning three of the game’s four quarters to walk away with the 14- point win and follow on from their six-point win in overtime in game one of the series on Monday.

Dellavedova spent just over four minutes on court on Wednesday, with his impact limited to just one assist.

Unfortuantely for Dellavedova, who didn’t play a minute in Milwaukee’s opening playoff game, he has grown used to missing time on the court this season.

The Maryborough product injured his ankle late in the season on February 5 and didn’t return to the court until April 11.

In total he missed 29 games for the Bucks, a frustrating run for the 27-year-old who up until that point had been incredibly durable, featuring in 291 of a possible 328 regular season games over his four year NBA career.
