Will just be happy if Nicolo Melli hits a 3 and J Rich scores more than 1 point.

Bucks are going to lay it down tonight. Mavs on the second half of a B2B where they lost, couldn’t rest at any point during the game, and where they looked like trash.

This game will be over by halftime. They’re doing whatever it takes to stay in the play-in

Edit: Giannis is doubtful so that helps. Still have my doubts regarding this team though. The Melli Magic is gone

And if Luka can find KP more than 3 times in the entire game. That would also help :P

Kristaps Porzingis (right wrist) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Thursday's game against the Bucks. 

This is noteworthy because Porzingis has not played in both ends of a back-to-back since February 3-4. If he does happen to sit Thursday night, that would likely keep Nicolo Melli in the starting lineup for one more game. Melli doesn't offer much in the way of fantasy value, so he really isn't worth streaming in standard leagues in this scenario.

Josh Richardson should not be a starter on a playoff team

This team just looks so stagnant since the Jazz game.

No flow whatsoever and the Bucks have an open lane to the basket every possession.

that effort to involve kp early on just seems forced.. kinda reminds me of kd/russ's "your turn my turn" style back in okc.. i want to see some consistent movement and natural flow rather than forcing it. simple picknroll or picknpop plays might benefit them.

Brunson being deemed “untouchable” hasn’t been kind to him

Even THJ is more aggressive going to the rim than KP. It's hillarious at this point. He's just lurking there at the 3pt line far away from the rim.

It's a tie game with 2 min left in the half.

Define screwed

Yeah and the Mavs should be up 10 tonight and last night. Bucks without Giannis are essentially the 2019 Pelicans and we are down at halftime to them. Pathetic
