A big nothing-burger in the grand scheme of things, but occasionally we still see glimpses of the pre-championship jitters this team got/gets in the 4th quarter of games and crunch time situations. Unacceptable to not even get a shot off on the last possession.

Also, I've been holding back because I truly believe that the team doesn't care much about the regular season, but....maybe they should just a little bit? Everyone keeps parroting the seeding doesn't matter thing because we won last year, but I'm going to go ahead and disagree. Bucks are 16-3 at Fiserv in the Bud postseason era, and 15-14 away from Fiserv in that same span. I don't think that's an unimportant stat...

Yup, we're in the second half of the season, virtually everyone has been in protocols, it's time to go out and win some games.


And even then, later in the season, some teams are going to completely quit on games so instead of falling into the playoffs like we did last year we can really build through the back end of the season.

I think he's kidding.

Sorry poor sarcasm on my part. Maybe if Ham was the full time coach haha.

Whenever I doubt this team (which is every second game lately) I remind myself that around this time last year I was 99% certain they are a 2nd round exit. I even wrote them off halfway into the 2nd round, and again halfway into the ECF.

At least now I know they are capable of digging in and finding their best self when it matters. Maybe they will again this year. No guarantees of course.

I was making some quick calculations based off the Hornets game stats and found something interesting. Hope the calculations and assumptions are right. Please see.

We had identical number of 3 point makes: 13-43 for us and 13-44 for them.

So difference.

Assuming the fg values are total field goal attempts:

Our fg was 37-84 = 44% and theirs was 38-96 = 39.6%

This means that the Bucks made 24-41 2 pointers = 59% and Hornets made 25 of 52 = 48.1%.



Their 2 pt % was much lower but because they shot so much more than the Bucks, they ended up making one extra two point shot. This plus two extra free throws made for them 14 for them and 12 for us. So they beat us by 2 + 2 = 4 points.

This what I found interesting particularly: Why did they get to shoot 52 two point shots and we shot only 41 times?

This is why even though their 2 pointer percentage was much lower than us, they got more points than us from 2 point shots made.

Why did they get to shoot 52 two point shots and we shot only 41 times? Is it because of our turnovers? Seems unlikely. We had 6 turnovers more than them but they made 11 2 point attempts more than us.

If we able to make about the same number of 2 point attempts as them, we would have easily won.

If the above computations are correct, it may mean something for our future game strategies.

Thoughts?

Plus 6 more offensive rebounds, 5 of them by mason Plumlee. Playing a true center vs a team that’s going to play pfs at center most of the night will get you a few more scoring opportunities.
