One thing's for sure, Bud wouldn't spend an entire series playing Trez against Boban with no adjustments.


As the series went on, Trezz minutes dropped and Zu's went up, nice try though...lol

And go ahead and check the Bucks board, Bud doesn't make adjustments. He didn't last year in the playoffs when Giannis got walled off and he didn't have Giannis check Butler even though he was torching everyone else. If Doc did that, you'd be calling for his head after game 1 :lol:

I blame the GM and Giannis more than Bud for their inability to deal with the wall. Giannis still gets walled off because he hasn't fully developed his game yet and because the Bucks don't have anyone else who can reliably punish teams for doing it.

man as i watch tatum get better and better, and show that he's really in the next generation of superstars, i wonder what could have been with the 76ers.

he would have solved so many of their problems. and their defense would have been absurd.

guess i should be glad they gave up on the process, because in my eyes that team was looking like the most dangerous to our championship aspirations.

now they're just a rudderless franchise that nobody fears.

Game 2 - Bucks down at the half 60-66. Who woulda thought possibly 0-2?

yeah if bucks somehow lose, the ramifications are just, wow

the path to a championship is significantly easier. the only team i'm truly afraid of is milwaukee, given how they trounced the clippers earlier in the season.

beyond that? losing with this monster of a team might influence giannis to leave in the future. and you know the clips would love to pair him with kawhi.

The Bucks haven't been the same team since the season restarted. I honestly think the Heat and Celtics are scarier at this point. But let's at least get past the second round first before worrying about Finals opponents. :D

19 seconds left, Bucks with the ball but 6 points down. Greek Freak misses 2 freethrows just a second ago that would have cut it to 4.... game's basically over....

The Clipper team that lost that game was not at close to full strength, if I remember correctly....

Heat just about gave it away... up by 3 with 7 seconds left....

good grief then they foul Middleton on a trey, he makes all 3, now tied at 114 with 4 seconds....

This might be the most cringeworthy ending to a playoff game ever. How does the NBA think this product is good?

This Bucks team is very Atlanta Hawkish under Bud. Great regular season team but falters in the playoffs

Bucks now in a 0-2 hole.....

I don't think Clips have to fear ANYBODY in the East, certainly not the Bucks.

I'm smelling Celtics. Young, long, hustling, athletic teams give us trouble. I'd rather face anyone else.

Down 2-0 sucks, but it's not a death sentence and not as bad as it seems. The one game at a time phrase comes. Win game 3, then it's 2-1, then after that, again you are saying win game 4 and it's even again, new series.

The Bucks losing the series would be a big dissapointment, certainly. We'll see, it's still not close to over.

I think the pressure switches to Miami.

Can they actually close these guys out?
Game 3 will be big for them.

The Bubble is weird. Miami doesn't have to go home and play with the pressure of closing this out in front of fans.
Also, Bucks don't have to worry about playing in a chaotic environment....just make the adjustments and take it one game at a time.
Clever reactions to aggressive situations

And now we see why Bud's teams flame out in the playoffs. No way I'd ever want a coach that thinks this way :crazy:
