Part of me thinks they'd be better off trading Parker for a two-way player.

I mean the lesson we all learned here is that Tony Snell shot 1/3 from distance and crippled the Bucks offense.

My prediction was Raptors in 6, but right now i will say that will be lucky if they get an other game. Lowry and DD are 2 of the biggest PO chockers in history. Giannis has an MVP written all over him.

Something that i can't understand, Valanciunas is very good offensive player and Thon can't stop him 1vs1, why they don't exploit that match up when they saw that there guards duo is not going?

Thon's thinner but he's also 7'1 and insanely quick. He's doing fine against Val. Lowry looks slow, I'm not so sure he's choking he just looks like he spent his time injured eating.

lol Masai signed Demarre scrub Carroll like he was a hot commodity at 12:01AM, I highly doubt he lets Lowry walk.


Don't laugh too hard. Magic's going to give up a real asset for DeRozan this summer


If we lose this series that would be amazing... I don't even follow Lakers but if they somehow gave us the 4th? (Or is it gotta be top 3?) pick for Demar that would be just... wow.. probably not gonna happen but damn would that be something :lol:

Don't know how anyone can justify Derozan being a top 20 player at this point, let alone being an All-NBA lock.

Checked the score for the first time and it was something like 48-17. Crazy.

Giannis is a match-up nightmare and he's only getting better.

It's quite obvious Lowry and DeRozan are not stars and the Raptors are not going anywhere with them as the focal point. Still, this series is far from over. Milwaukee doesn't have enough shooting to close them out, I see them getting cold the next couple of games.

Agreed that this is far from over yet. But if it turns around, it wont be because of not having enough shooting. The Bucks are actually shooting relatively well since Middleton is back. If this turns around it will be because many core players are young and get over excited, which might boost their confidence or backfire and show up with more ease in the up coming games to a team with proven talent on it's roster. So, i suppose it will all come down to the next game. If the Bucks make it 3-1 then i think they will at least grab a closing W.. if it goes 2-2 everything is possible.

Been saying this for the last 3-4 years about Derozan. This guy is a fraud.

I've never seen a team more unprepared in my life I've never seen these type of mental mistakes over and over again...

It's a complete abomination and it's not even that the Bucks are that good it's the Raptors are THAT Bad...
This garbage has happened for the last 4 years this might be worse then the Wizards sweep.

I feel like I'm watching a bunch of Grade 8's play not professional players...

If a coach was ever to be fired in a middle of a playoff series in all of sports this would be it...

I don't even know how Lowry and DeRozan can look themselves in the mirror complete chumps

I've never seen Dwane Casey being outcoached this badly... And I thought playoff Whittman was bad

Jason Kidd is writing a novel to Casey on how to coach, and Casey is responding back with a colouring book

Thon's PnR defense is a game changer for the Bucks. He's got a bad pair of hands but if he can keep hitting his jumpers - plus attacking the rim on close-outs - and sustain that defensive energy - while fouling less - he's going to be a great asset for the Bucks.

Preaching to the choir man. I guess Casey just doesn't trust Jonas, because he is not a good passer, and provides zero playmaking. Well, he did got some looks this game. 9 FGA and few fouls drawn in only 20 minutes. Just need to get more looks down low, when he gets good post position, he is very efficient. Maker and Monroe just seem to be bad match ups for him. You need to chase maker near perimeter, and Monroe just always been Jonas' father...
