It's more possible for them to fall in the 3rd, 4th seed than getting close to us.

No way they hold off LA for #1 overall seed.

We have more wins than the Clippers so what's the problem?

I agree that the Clippers are the likely Finals opponent but I'd still feel more comfortable once we secure home court. Hard to bet against Playoff LeBron.

It saddens me to say this, Frank Mason is absolutely not an NBA player and DJ Wilson may very well be playing in China very soon.

Sterling Brown dribbling is a fiasco at worst and self inflicted mayhem at best.

Really enjoyed that game. Nights like tonight show how valuable Bud & his staff really are.

Can't gamble feeding baby on that dope money, might not always be sufficient.

So I'm not at all sure what to read into these quotes.

1. Is the first quote a fine-able offense for resting healthy players? Or is it ok because they dressed but didn't see court time?
2. Is Bud throwing shade on the guys who are now "tired" and not putting in effort on defense?

Scoffing at 120-104 as being a letdown really blew up in my face.

I don't think Bud is throwing any shade at his own players. I don't even know if it was his decision to rest everybody considering the fine won't be coming out of his paycheck.

The conspiracist in me says it could be a middle finger to the league. The Bucks know they're going to get fined but they were pissed about playing 5 games in 8 nights including a B2B in altitude. Or maybe the were mad about the officiating in the Lakers game. So they rested everybody during the only game on national TV to tank ratings.

Very glad that Bud decided to put this lineup on the floor (This is what I stated I wanted to happen in the game thread before the game started). It seems that he is thinking long term.

Now he needs to try a few things to make this team less predictable, because at this point the Bucks are an open book. Do not underestimate the importance of showing new things during the regular season (when there is a lot of opportunity to try new schemes, approaches, etc).

I was happy we put the tank squad to start the game. I'm also impressed the garbage time guys actually had a better first quarter then the starters did last night against phx!

One question everyone keeps mentioning the 2nd of a b2b game in altitude not being fair but isnt salt lak city in altitude 2 cause the raptors had a back to back and had no issue with altitude

I mean it's not like I feel comfortable going to the FF looking for a win, last year was a pretty traumatic experience both from a crowd support perspective and a team performance perspective. Pretty much the only reason I want HCA is because I know some of you guys want to go to a G7 at home, and I respect that, otherwise yeah I hate watching the team in FF. I wish we had a home court like LA / Toronto / Boston / Philly.
