OK, no matter how all we want to see another Jokic/Giannis duel or Nuggets at the top of the league, risking Jokic when he finally has some rare injury would be irresponsible.

Very strong effort game, wasn't hard to see an on-the-road B2B loss. However, great to see such a strong effort from AG50 and our bench. Especially nice to see Bones have a good game. Sad to see a missed opportunity at 1st place in the NBA standings but we're still atop the West

I didn't watch this highly anticipated game when I notice at the start only Gordon playing out of starters, but despite the Bucks obviously playing just good enough to win, we should be proud of guys who not only escape a blowout loss vs NBA TOP5 team but forced Giannis to play full playing time game with only one digit loss at the end (I think they never have 15+ lead)!

Totally forgot we played yesterday so I first checked results on nba.com and now I don´t feel a need to watch this. Just wondering, I see one assist, 5-14 shooting, 1-5 from three, what is the reason you wrote Bones had good game? Asking seriously cause I know boxscore doesn´t tell you everything.

Fair question. I said that because, let's be honest, Bones' main contribution is his scoring. He's been in a scoring slump lately, so for to him add 15pts (however he accomplished it) seems like he is starting to recover his scoring prowess again, whether that is from confidence or a return from a (phantom) injury, it was a good sign to me.

Yeeeaaahhh... I hoped your answer will be different than he scored altough ineffectively. :) Like he played defense for a change or something.

It is tough. To say "I don´t like Bones" is just like saying "I don´t like puppies." He is so sweet kid that loves playing basketball... But he denies those sayings like nothing is black or white, right or wrong. Because when he is ON, oh he is a beast. When he is OFF, it is painfull to watch. No defense, freezing offense with overdribling, taking bad shots (but when he is ON he makes them so you are like don´t shoot that no no no... Ok YEAH! :D )

Meanwhile trying to responde I got little drunk so... I wanna say I miss Monte. Ok he won´t give you 30 but he makes no mistakes, always play with the system.

And while I love our recent team I miss guys like Eddie Najera, Linas Kleiza, Galo, Nene, Faried heck I will say it, Anthony Carter (cause he had no skill but all the will)... That´s me being nostalgic. :D
