PG Lakers - Bucks Cruise 

Post#1 » by MickeyDavis » Thu Apr 1, 2021 4:38 am

Sure they were missing AD and LBJ but we were missing Portis and Tucker so that’s a push.

Shaky start but took care of business.

Lakers started 8-12 from 3 and then went 2-24. You can attribute it to better defense, you can attribute it to bad luck (but then you have to attribute the first quarter to good luck). Or most likely a combo.

Bledsoe was not a trash player, he was very good for us. And we probably overpaid but I love Jrue on this team.
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

Drummond looks a great addition to the Lakers already.

Rough start. Can't have starts like that on teams not led by Schroder and Drummond.

Holiday will never be not worth it to me. Unless he doesn’t sign.

I’d like to point out that after giving up 8 threes in the 1st quarter we only gave up 2 the rest of the game.

I know it is very early, but the fadeaway 3 becoming an option for Thanasis is a development we all foresaw.

Start was poor and we didn't really kill them off at any point but a solid win.

Giannis looked healthier in this one. That's really the game at this point. We're a title contender if the man is good to go.

Giannis is looking uncharacteristically slow on the floor for the last few games.

We still look disjointed for long stretches. Slowly moving in the right direction.

I am not very optimistic that we'll win the east, but if we end up playing the Lakers in the finals, I love the Drummond signing lol.

Jrue is a monster. When am I allowed to freak out about him not extending yet?

How was Forbes? That's all I'm interested in.

Wins in LA don't come easy for Los Bucks. Glad to see the W.

I thought it was always pretty likely he went to FA given how the dollars work out. Still expect him back.
