Closing out this game today is important in 2 ways:

(1) Gives us more needed rest and prep time for MIL
(2) Shows our own resiliency in maintaining intensity and focus at the level needed for playoff success.

We don't have the top end star power to be a team that suffers through too many ebbs and flows in the postseason


At this point I feel like rest is overrated. It’s one thing if a team goes through a full schedule and then enters into a playoff series. But we’re in the bubble. Players just had 4 months off to rest, no travel is necessary for “away” games, and there has already been plenty of time to practice. Sweeping the series would be great, but I don’t think the extra time off would provide a benefit to the team either.


Jimmy questionable to return right now. How are we feeling about rest now?


I like time for rest due to injury recovery. Without injuries, my point still stands.

Herro’s scoop around the 4:24 minute mark in the fourth quarter was not just a superb shot, but also a very smart play that brought the big towards him, leaving the basket unattended for a Bam rebound put back in case of a miss.
Stan V G said Herro was fearless, but that imo is a system play teaching high percentage/situational shots where even if you miss it still a good play.

Props to the coaching staff developing these youngsters.

the best way to eat deer meat is when it is preserved or smoked... by the way VictorO took this sweep like a champ , his coach didn't

I see Herro "downloading" a lot of Dragic's crafty paint penetration skills as they spend time playing and training together

Ehhh, with injuries yes. Need to see evidence the rest leads to a playoff advantage. Can’t find proof on google.

Very true.
He was looking at Dragic smiling after the play, so you may have something there.
