If he could just focus on scoring, he'd probably do better. He can't seem to walk and chew gum at the same time.

We have seen Butler plays with passion will his team to a win and we saw this game. No need to say anything else. Something must be going on in Butler’s life. Bam was not good but he’s not the star of the team either.


Duncan was amazing this game and will get paid this off-season.


Big part of it is how the Bucks defend him, they were packing the paint all game and daring him to shoot threes.

Jimmy has to prove early in the series that he can hit those open threes so the Bucks can adjust. Its a mental game out there.

Same with Bam in this regard He has to take these free throw jumpers.

We're expecting Butler, Bam and Herro to play better in game 2, but do we also expect the Bucks to shoot 16% from three?

If Bam and Jimmy show up and play the way they are supposed to it might not matter.

What we have to be careful about, Jrue Holiday has not gone off yet offensively. He is fully capable of going off offensively. Need to get Nunn and Herro and Bam scoring successfully

I cant get mad a jimmy, he was aggressive, took a big hit after getting foul in the clutch and came up with the shot taking the Heat to overtime. Meanwhile Bam somewhere setting a screen.

You would just hope after Jimmy got hurt on that foul, Bam would of been like ok big dog I got this the rest of the way.

The role players did their job yesterday. Certainly enough to win the game.

How can a guy who is an 80% FT shooter be so hesitant in taking the midrange shot? Gotta punish Lopez for laying off of you.

He can take and make the mid range shot, but it's all about confidence. Lopez is playing mind games with Bam by giving him that much space to shoot the jumper.

He's also fully capable of not doing anything more offensively than the 20 points he scored game 1. The rate at which he goes off offensively is not that great

He mentioned this in his post game interview that he would still continue to take what the Bucks are giving him.

He needs to be at least respectable beyond the arc for us to have a chance this series. Bucks will continue to pack the paint for Bam and Him.

Most of those 3's that he shot were in rhythm, he usually makes those so I'm not that mad the he took em, but he did take some unnecessary ones considering the situation we were in.
