Bucks' Jabari Parker Frustrated By Lack Of Playing Time In Playoffs

Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker told reporters on Thursday that he felt like he was "cut short" and "wasn't supported" when his role was reduced in the playoffs, adding that he has been waiting two years for this and deserves "to be out there". Although, Parker did vow to start being a better teammate. "I'm not getting what I want right now but there's a bigger picture". He averaged 12.6 points per game after missing almost a year rehabbing his second major knee injury. I deserved to be out there, I earned it.

With all of that in mind, let's take a closer look at the action ahead, and see which team can prevail in Game 3.

To win Game 3 and have a chance of turning the series around, the Bucks will need their best players to perform again, but they'll also need more balanced and consistent contributions on the whole.

Milwaukee trails Boston 2-0 in the series after losing 113-107 in overtime in Game 1 and 120-106 in Game 2. Parker has played just 25 minutes combined through two games, and he's upset about it.


Injuries have limited Parker throughout his career, and he appeared in just 31 games during the regular season after returning from a torn ACL.

Brogdon's ability to play between point guard to small forward in a small-ball rotation at a sturdy 6-foot-5, 215-pound frame has given him plenty of opportunities, while Parker is pretty much only an option at power forward.

With Parker largely riding the pine, most of the playing time has gone to Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Tony Snell thus far in the series.
