    Bucks have to come back down to earth at some point right? These guys are playing pretty far above their heads
    Hope so. Middleton, Snell and Brogdon are all shooting lights out.

      If we can't contain the lesser version of LBJ, no chance we do the real thing....not to mention Kyrie.
      Lesser version? They both play different ways. Lebron is stronger and Giannis is longer. Guys like Tucker is meant to guard guys like Lebron. Giannis is a tougher matchup for him.

        It was a lucky win. We still played like fools. Good luck to this team in Milwaukee because they are gonna need it badly. We were 2 missed wide open 3's from being down 0-2. Remember that
        Momentum can change on a dime. I've seen it a thousand times. Win by 1, 5, 10 or 100..just win. Regroup from there

        • Now that it's over, it should not have been that close. Raps missed 7 free throws (Holy Missed Free Throws Batman!) and the Bucks made 11 threes. Overall the defense was fine and the offense looked good for the most part but they're making a lot of little mistakes with rotations, turnovers, bad passes, etc. that they need to clean up.

          I don't think the Bucks can play any better than they've played in games one and two. Time for the Raps to find 6th gear.

            You could say they (Bucks) were two freakish Derozan finishes away from double digit losses too. We know how often they do go in

              Joseph guarding Kyrie...I'm already having daytime nightmares.

                True, but Lebron would have had 1 less championship id Ray Allen missed that 3

                • Gonna stop deluding myself that we blow this team out for every game, they are all going to be 4-5 point wins, no blowouts. Kudos to the Bucks....

                      • Very lucky win, but I'll take it. Heck yes, I'll take it.

                        Nice to have Lowry mostly back. Saw the legs disappear late in the 3rd but hit the game winner, so found them I guess.

                        Did not like the late game offence, really played into the Bucks' hands with the small lineup and settling for jumpers. Led to a lot of run outs and sparked the Bucks when they were down big. Then late the Raps seemed to forget that they had to cover the perimeter, gave up several wide open looks to give up the lead, and got real lucky as the Bucks shooters just missed.

                        Lots to work on for the next couple games. But it's a new series now. That's good.

                          • Whew I don't wanna play the Bucks anymore! I'd much rather be playing the Hawks.

                              No surprise. They are a terrible rebounding team.

                                I actually don't think so. I think they figured out their style of play when Jabari got injured (as indicated by their record). I've said this before but Parker was a ballstopper (ala Rudy Gay here). Middleton spreads out the floor FAR better since he is a shooter which allows Giannis to run down lanes and whip the ball out to shooters (who may also continue to pass the ball) instead of the ball slowing down when Jabari starts trying to create as well.

                                On the flip side, we have our "stars" as usual struggling with the pressure of the Playoffs. They need to play with more confidence and try to forget the moment and just play aggressively.
