WATCH: Eric Bledsoe send Kyrie Irving back in a big way

One of the best individual matchups of the Eastern Conference Semifinals series between the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks has to be Kyrie Irving and Eric Bledsoe.

While Irving got the best of his lesser-known counterpart in Boston’s blowout Game 1 win, Bledsoe made sure his impact was felt early in Game 2 Tuesday night.

Just check out the veteran guard sending Irving back in a big way as the Celtics attempted to execute an alley-oop.

That’s great hustle and execution from Bledsoe here. He’s certainly going to have to up his game if the Bucks are going to make this a series.

If the start of Game 2 is any indication, Bledsoe is more than up for the task.
