  • Big game for the Bucks tonight. Lose and you are pretty much forked for this playoff run.
    The Nets are looking really good.
    Durant is scary good. And the Nets are getting big help from those who come in after the big 3 needs a blow for holding leads and getting more on runs.

    Do or Die?
    or
    God they are good.

    Who ya got?

    i am going to take the one game that the Bucks should win and it’s tonight.
    Do or die Bucks win.
    And with the 4th overall pick the Toronto Raptors select..... Scottie Barnes.

      It starts defensively. They are going to have to change the way they play and their lineups to get to a more switching style defense and take away the threes. If they can't do that, nothing the Bucks change offensively is going to matter. They are also going to have to generate some turnovers and make the Nets pay in transition, get some extra possessions on the offensive glass, shoot the lights out and hope the Nets start missing. Tall order.

            Can the Bucks play a switching style successfully? Especially against the best offensive team in the league, in the playoffs? It will be interesting if the "switch it up" or just stay with their core drop coverage defense.

            This is a good article that talked about this exact cross-road that we've seen from the Bucks in the Playoffs (aka... Deer in Headlights) before. They experimented with switching more in the regular season. Another obvious solution is to keep Lopez on the bench, play Giannis at center, and bring in their most switchable defender. In that regard, losing DiVincenzo really hurt them in this series. Their next best defender after him might be Thanassis, who would shrink the floor even more for Giannis. 2-time COY Bud has some coaching to do.


            How the Bucks' defense is trying to evolve

            That's why it's interesting and potentially significant that the Bucks have recently started to experiment with different defensive coverages, especially late in games. They've struggled in a lot of those coverages, but simply seeing them try out new stuff has been encouraging.

            One of their biggest philosophical changes is an increased willingness to switch, after avoiding doing so like the plague over the past two seasons. That's primarily manifested itself in small-small screening actions, but Antetokounmpo and Lopez are also switching out onto the perimeter far more often. They've already defended as many isolations born of pick-and-roll switches as they did all last season, according to Synergy.
            That's really the point of all this at the end of the day: to get those reps in; to see if switching can be a viable fall-back scheme with the Bucks' personnel; to see if Lopez can get comfortable playing up high or if that's truly a lost cause; to see if they can find workarounds to keep Lopez on the floor in high-leverage moments against elite competition, or if they're better off downsizing. This is the time to throw shit at the wall and see what sticks.

            After two years of hewing to a clearly defined identity, the Bucks are tinkering and clearly still figuring themselves out. It hasn't always been pretty but learning what works and what doesn't is the point. For teams with championship ambitions, that's what the regular season is for.

                I think it's too late for them. Defence is habits, repetition and discipline (as opposed to offence, which is creativity, risk-taking, and fluidity/jazz). If all you did in the regular season was dab/experiment on a particular defensive scheme, that's not gonna translate in the playoffs.

                The achilles hill of coaches in the NBA is stubbornness. That's probably a top 3 reason for coaches being let go, and might be his downfall this year.

                  Also, I just don't think Brook is worth the minutes he gets. He's not effective enough. Helps protect the rim but gives them other defensive issues, his mobility is too limited. And let's be honest, a stretch big who shoots 3's in the low 30's% is not that good. He's been even worse from deep 2 of their last 3 playoff runs and is one of the guys responsible for a nice regular season team falling off in the playoffs like they do.

                                I think "playoff basketball" as it once was is offically dead. No longer do whistle loosen and the refs let them play. No longer does a guy who baits for foul shots get exposed in the post season. No longer do D tighten up and the big man becomes more important. NBA basketball is just shooting 3 and no D. Regular season and playoffs
