PG: Bucks Pound Blazers 

Post#1 » by MickeyDavis » Sat Apr 3, 2021 4:22 am

Very nice road win against a good team.

Bledsoe was a fine player for us and we may have “overpaid” but Jrue is a stud and he makes us so much better.

I said this in the game thread but even after all these years Giannis still does things that make me want a cigarette after.

Teague was solid.

I loved Giannis post game quote: “Of course I’m the MVP again this season, I’m clearly the best player”. Actually he didn’t say that because he’s not an insecure dbag like Harden.

On to Sacramento.
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

Just a great performance from Giannis and Jrue. Midds chipped in with his usual 20/5/5. The defence is fraudulent but those three did their thing.

Giannis is good at basketball.

Love Jrue, he is such a high IQ player on both ends. I’m hoping he’s going to push for some adjustments.

Midds looked good outside the first bit. Pat and Forbes pretty bad.

Giannis FT shooting continues to impress me the most.

Really great win. Jrue and Giannis just need to punish teams. Mids needs to accept a smaller role when those two are on the court and take a bigger role when one of them is off.

Giannis was 18/18 inside the arc and 11/13 from the free throw line. Complete dominance.

Lillard is a special talent on offense but people don't talk enough about how bad he is on defense.

Two things:

1. The Heat are the 6th seed right now. Do not want.

2. The Bucks should have signed Teague in the first place.

First game where our top 3 all played good. Giannis hitting 11/13 on free throws is huge. Jrue was worth what we paid (as long as he resigns). I agree with whoever mentioned that Teague will end up being an important part of the team. I think he will be an important player even throughout the playoffs.

I feel like we've made some nice minor role player upgrades to the rotation.

Teague > DJA
Tucker > Craig
a chair > DJ Wilson

I'd like to see Merrill get a chance to be better than Forbes in that "do literally nothing other than chuck" role.

Bucks had one of those nights you have on the road, where you just can't hit open 3s. Finished 12-39.

Usually that's a recipe for a loss. Instead, they won by 18 against a streaking Portland team. Huge win.

Drop 6-9 spots in 2021 draft for Jeff Teague and PJ Tucker.

That was a great recovery trade by the Bucks. Props.

Teague will definitely be more valuable than the guy who's always injured from Houston.

Giannis was awesome tonight. Was finishing everything and was under control. Jrue had some great moments punishing the defense.

Giannis/Jrue/Middleton were 35 of 48 from the floor (73%). So yeah mostly everybody else kinda sucked but it didn't matter.

Giannis 47 points in 33 minutes was cool but did you se Nurkic's dunk? :lift:

Merrill, Nwora, or Teague are better options. Teague has a 6'7" wingspan, he's a better defensive option than Forbes.

It would be nice if we could get some points from Donte. He missed a lot of wide open shots.

Just would've been better if we didn't have to do that in the first place.
