No FSN for this one, ESPN only (please no Doris!!!).

Depleted Lakers but so what, who knows which Bucks team shows up?

No word on Tucker, he did make the trip.

Bucks favored by 8.5
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

I am completely lost on what to think coming into this one. I'm not confident in our team after the last 3-4 games they've played together (excluding the Knicks game which was pretty fun to watch).

I predict 120-104, but as to who will get the 120, i might just toss a coin.

Team's been in a funk since the Celtics game. A lot of it has to do with attitude of one guy and the injury/lack of focus of another.

Attitude of who?

For a start, please noone shoot 3s 3 ft behind the damn arc. If the 3 point line is too close and easy then show us by making more.

This season has been one of win streaks followed by losing streaks. I think we’re in one of the losing streaks now. If we play like we have the last few games, this is another loss.

We lost to the Celtics on a back to back matchup which is always difficult, New York when we trotted out NOBODY and still almost won, and then got smacked by a good Clippers team. People are ignoring the context surrounding these games. I don't know where people have been, but this team isn't winning 60+ games. It's ok to lose. We're sitting at an equivalency of a 52 game win pace right now.

"The regular season doesn't matter! Try things!"

*Tries things*

"Ugh, you just never know what you're going to get with this team, we suck."

Do people just expect us to tinker, trot out different looks, and gain experience while we just never skip a beat? I feel like I'm one of the more negative guys on this board when it comes to where this team ultimately peaks this season, but the regular season game to game mood on this board doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

We're about to win 7 or 8 out of our next 10. It starts with a blowout of LAL.

This team is unpredictable. Really not looking forward to some role player having the most epic night of his life breaking all his career scoring records.

win-lose. doesnt matter.

We will finish the regular season as one of the top 4 teams, we will go through the first round of playoffs and be thrown out on the second.

That simple.

I know we're in one of the losing streaks now. By definition.

I think the Bucks win by a healthy margin. The Lakers are still missing LeBron and AD right? After getting spanked by the clips I think they'll have something to prove.

Bucks -8.5

Big difference between tinkering and major pieces not being consistent.

Have only watched a very little bit recently. Who's got the 'tude? And who's injured/unfocused <-- Giannis for this part?

Not sure who you mean w/r to attitude. I'd guess injury/lack of focus are really the same thing with Giannis. He seems intent on playing through it, so I guess let's just hope it sorts out.

Ah yes, and if we play like we did during the win streak this is a win.

It's not easy to be consistent when you're being thrown into newer coverages with different players with some regularity. Consistency should not be the expectation given what people want on the floor. What Bud gave us for the previous two seasons WAS consistency and it wasn't good enough.

Completely agree with you on this.

I’d be curious to know how many different line ups the bucks have used compared to league averages. It’d also be interesting to see how many different defensive schemes they’ve played but that would be difficult to track.
