MILWAUKEE — The quirks of scheduling for the NBA playoffs created three-day breaks between games in the Boston-Milwaukee and Memphis-Golden State series.

The teams don’t seem to mind the delays too much.

They’ve used the time off to get healthier and deal with unexpected roster changes.

The Celtics-Bucks and Grizzlies-Warriors series are both tied heading into Game 3s on Saturday at Milwaukee and San Francisco.

These four teams haven’t played since Tuesday. NBA teams rarely get such long layoffs.
