A few encouraging signs in game 2 but not enough.

Bucks -5 (crazy)

GO BUCKS
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

Need to throw Donte out there and hope for the best. Give Ersan a chance because he can move off ball and get offensive rebounds against most of their dudes, need role players to put their big boys pants on and **** shoot the three with confidence. Need Giannis to make much sharper reads.

I would give anything to see Bud leave players on the floor who are playing well instead of sticking to a predetermined rotation. Brook, Khris and Giannis have all been benched after good stints this series.

Yeah took off Giannis twice when he was finally rolling and hyped, Brook seems to always go out after a made three.

If Giannis/Khris aren’t in severe foul trouble and end up with less than 40 minutes Bud needs to be fired immediately after the game.

All of Brook, Bled, Hill, Matthews need to be at 33-35+ and Pat/Donte both need to be out pretty much entirely

Would be cool if they effectively switched all small-small PnR or DHOs, but it’s probably not as easy when Bud didn’t give a crap about experimenting and building those habits all RS.

We’re probably going to lose this series but if we get swept because of this idiot I’m gonna lose my mind this offseason

Going down 3-0 in the series just to make it more fun when they flip they switch and crush the Heat.

Not even Bud's biggest critics could have predicted how poorly he's been so far.

Bud has been worse than I think any one of us could have imagined, it's infuriating.

Any adjustments here maybe?

Just avoiding a sweep seems like a good outcome at this point. I've seen no evidence that we are capable of winning four games in this series..

Does bud really think we just need to keep doing what we are doing and it will work out this time?

Bud doesn't believe in shortened rotations. It's like he's trying to make the point that it's all about the system. He's too stubborn for his own good.

Wes deserves credit for the job he's doing on Butler this series. Instead of people asking why Giannis wasn't guarding Butler at the end of Game 1, people should ask why Wes wasn't in the game. Butler is 1/6 with Wes guarding him this series and 8/8 with Middleton or Hill on him.

Siakam played 38 minutes tonight and was fourth on the team lmao. Lowry & OG played 46 and 45 respectively. Middleton played 33 minutes and was a +20 in a 2 point loss yesterday. If Giannis/Khris aren't playing 42+ tomorrow I am gonna get **** alcohol poisoning.

Told myself all year that I guess we are probably practising switching if not doing it in game because obviously you need it in playoffs. Joke's on me.
