I thought we'd win round 1 in 5 games. Won in four.

I thought we'd win round 2 in 6 games. Win in five.

All four games were, at some point, close in the 4th quarter. During the first 3 games we were able to execute more efficiently down the stretch. Today, it was Milwaukee. Yes we didn't play with enough attention to details. Yes, didn't play with enough intensity. Yes, we should have closed them out today. But it's not the end of the world.. not even close.

We haven't lost a game in nearly 3 weeks. It was about time we lose one. It'll help us get back to the drawing board. The game film will help a lot in zoning out the lazy habits we displayed in today's game. It takes a loss to truly learn.. had we won today we could have carried the same 'aura of invincibility' to the next round and it could have resulted in a game 1 loss to Boston/Toronto.

Plain and simple, today was a great wake up call. Look, we were going to lose eventually. Let's not get overboard..


Playoffs are ALL about match-ups, and with Giannis or without GIannis, we match-up extremely well against the Bucks. Regardless of what happened today, that simple fact has not changed. We have an abundance of 2-way wings who can slow down Middleton over the course of 48 minutes.Yes Middleton cooked us today, but he's not Kawhi, KD or Kobe... he's Kris. With a better gameplan and more intensity, we'll slow him down. Make no mistake about it.



Milwaukee fans can tell themselves whatever they want to in order to sleep better at night. They can convince themselves that they've got us 'figured out', despite being down 3-1 in the series.


Let's not forget who the real dogs are. We're the physical dogs in this series. They're the lamb. All these boys needed was a wake-up call. You can bet your house, wife and kids that next game will display some of the most intense basketball ever showcased from the Miami Heat. This is Erick Spoelstra we're talking about here. This is Udonis Haslem we're talking about here. This is PAT RILEY we're talking about here. A good ass kicking at tomorrows shoot around and these dudes will come out believing it's game 7 of the finals. Just watch.



Milwaukee Bucks, Mandarin Ducks, Raptors Suck.. it just doesn't matter. Miami in 5.

This. No doubt in my mind that we're the better team. Will worry when it's 3-3.

I feel like he did a pretty good job on both ends and really wasn't the main problem.

If we're counting on Jimmy to score 40 and destroy everything to the Finals then we're being delusional. He was never that kind of a player and never will be at this point. Supporting cast gotta hit shots and they will

Am i looking through my homer glasses? The refs keep on screwing miami on crucial calls that do affect the outcome of the game. We did not deserve to win that game, but it diesnt mean we couldnt have won it if the damn refs do a better job, they are not calling a lot of fouls our players are getting, that Jimmy foul would have sent him to the freethrow line, the blocking foul on Dragic was absurd, to me its clear they did not want the bucks to go home today. I mean they can not be that bad at their job.

Sometimes losing a game can be good for the team. It will better prepare them for the rest of the playoffs. Rather lose one in this series than one in the next series.

I know that we are still in a really strong spot. But my only concern with this is. In a close out game we don't show up mentally against a good team. Hopefully this is a lesson for the guys to not allow this to happen again. We have to behave like every game is a game where we are going home.

Also a good thing for us not to have a potential 9 day break going into a series against Boston or Toronto which will likely go 7 games and they will still be fresh and still in sync.

I agree. Taking a L can recenter your focus. This will be a good lesson.

Also, DJJ getting no minutes means he's gone. If dude can't beat out Kendrick "I'm scared of dis chit" Nunn for minutes, then he's not on the roster next year.

NGL Middleton is a baller and showed that he's more than just a random supporting cast of Giannis. He's a huge reason that team has been successful. He plays hard and the right way. I'd take him on Heat any day.

So many with a poor opinion of him. Boy can ball. Almost had a 50, 40, 90 % year this year. "Okay" players can't do that.

Giannis is bit overrated and Middleton is very underrated. I'm glad we're showing how it really is to the world in the process of knocking them out. :nod:

In an elimination game our super star, our leader got out scored by someone playing 11 mins. Again this should have been an elimination game. I could sorta understand if he shut down or made Middleton's life impossible but that was not the case. Sure we will win this series but im just disappointed in Butler for this game. He will make it up next game but when you have your opponent on the rope ready to finish them off, he played like that tonight. Next game i guess. Bam was impressive and showing he is a force to deal with, the defense has been there but now the offense is starting to slowly click for him. Herro with that ice cold 3 when we needed it the most.
