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.[/quo


I for one dont think theres anything special about LAs supposedly home court advantage.
First off they have more losses at home than the bucks and their fans are nothing more than rich pricks actors n actresses who sit on their hands all night they come late n leave early..
Where they have the advantage is that they get every call possible at home

Just finished the Suns game and saw the first 2 minutes of this game and thought I'd check in. Clearly Bud cracking the **** at everyone playing at Booker levels of defensive urgency. I like it. Dudes thought they could just out-gun a lottery team without playing any D. Mids goes 3 years in a row getting dragged for not trying but this time at least he has a bunch of friends.

Bud was clearly dragging on the starters. Personally I love to see it. He said they were healthy, but gave the team a worse chance to win then the guys he put out there. Don’t think there’s any hidden message there

I'd hate to have Bud's comments turn into a chemistry issue but he has a point. Even when the Bucks aren't coasting, they do tend to forget to play at a fast pace and whip the ball around. Bledsoe, Khris, and even Giannis tend to revert to sizing their guy up 15-20 feet from the basket, and Brook is just kind of slow. This will cost them a title if they don't minimize it.

U make a good point its not all about the palyers its also about the thin air altitidue or maybe its not becuaz Tornto won but maybe not its not an apples to appels situation there has to be something to explain why the Bucks dont look themselves last nite

Went from statistically an all time great team to probably only finishing a couple games ahead of an often injured raptors squad and Giannis losing the mvp to Lebron as the lakers finish with the best record. Sobering

You’re not wrong but it’s still the best season I’ve seen in my lifetime so I’m still enjoying it, I won’t tell anyone how to be a fan though. I’ll admit that not watching the heat, suns, and today’s games because of work has probably kept me from going insane so I don’t blame you for feeling down.

I’d bet on the lakers unless they start some serious load management. Their schedule is criminally easy the rest of the season while ours remains one of the toughest in the league

Luckily no kids but was at the game. My heart goes out to the poor guys who were sitting courtside, that had to be a kick to the groin to watch.

It’s still been a great season. Just ready for the playoffs to start. Really don’t care about the record unless it ends up costing giannis an mvp. I want giannis to be considered a top 5 player when it’s all said and done and mvps snd titles are the only way he gets there

The Nuggets are Bums. They beat us when we had no Gasol, Ibaka, or Fred but then lose to the Cavs, Warriors, and get rekt by the Clippers. Now they beat the bucks without Giannis and KM.

Frauds.

Wouldn't look too much into last nights game.

The 2016-17 Durant Warriors finished 67-15 and won the title.

They had an identical crap stretch the first week of March that year, where the 70-win dream was blown up, as they went 2-5. Durant went out for a couple weeks with an MCL knee sprain.

The Bucks just hit an understandable mental and physical wall in the drive for 70-wins, during a very tough schedule week.

We'll be fine here.

I think Bud said a message that it's a disgrace for the No1 defense of the league to get 140 points from a lottery team without 2 of their best players. With Giannis or without him.

Against the Suns the starters sucked defensively and we only showed resistance when the bench came in with Donte, Hill and Robin Lopez and when Bledsoe and the rest came back in we let them get away once again.

I know the factor of tired legs and bad luck played a role too but I liked his decision even if it probably cost us a game in the end.
