I get it to an extent, but the team as a whole is scoring 1.10 points per possession in the playoffs and 1.07 in this series, so is the answer really to use a play that generates less than that more often?
Having said that, yes, theoretically I think many of the things being discussed here would be good. More Giannis as roller, more Giannis getting screens, etc.
The problem is not JUST the Giannis possessions (and the fact that you are still looking for ways to make his game more efficient/get him rolling and you are totally disregarding a very potent option here). The problem also is the wasted possessions when Bucks players are put in situations that are not advantageous for them specifically (see DDV PnRs).
Also I don't understand this. Given that the games have been close (at least the first two ones) people were happy to heavily criticize Giannis for missing FTs, but suddenly people are supposed to close their eyes to all the wasted possessions for the Bucks? The early 3 pointers without even exchanging a pass, the DDV PnRs, (scratch that, the DDV minutes have been horrible), the Giannis PnRs on the top of the offense instead of the sides, the horrible spacing (that also does not allow Giannis to post since he would get doubled right away since the setup is such that allows the Heat to double him and leave a bad shooter open - or a Bucks player cuts at the wrong time - and passing out of a double team in the post is very difficult and leads to turnovers).
