We match up well against GSW even with Draymond.

Teams like Hornets and Heat are harder to crack.

Since when did the unwritten rules require you to run out the shot clock without shooting and get a turnover, with time still remaining? I want some written rules against that crap. It isn’t running up the score if there is still time after the shot clock expires. Maybe don’t take a 3 in that situation or dunk it if you insist on unwritten rules.


The usual unwritten rule is about taking a shot in the final shot clock when the game is well and truly over.

The point here is a) why go for a steal when clearly no one is trying to make a play on O, if you're not going to take a final shot anyway, and b) why then jack up a three when the game is over and no one is seriously guarding you.


I don't think either one is a problem, to be clear. Lord knows Thanasis would have been doing it if the shoe was on the other foot. There are guys whose inability to let up is what keeps them in the league. Let them be themselves. I just think that if it WAS Thanasis, we'd hear about it from Kerr in the postgame.

I have less concerns about the Hornets as it would be nice to play them with some guards.

The Heat are going to be interesting. We've improved our half court game so much for the slower-paced Playoffs, I'm not convinced guys like Bam, Butler and Lowry have a higher level to go to and really match us. However it's always about which team hits 3's, and we've demonstrated we can miss from there with the best of them :lol:

Khris and Giannis have some awesome chemistry, Khris is very good at finding Giannis when others don't

Can you imagine if we show up to the playoffs fully healthy? I mean we're so full there's hardly any time for guys like Wes and Nwora:
Jrue/Hill
Grayson/Donte
Khris/Pat
Giannis/Bobby
Brook/Bobby

Cloning Bobby would be super helpful, is Sookie getting closer to making it happen?

He also can guard smalls much better than PJ and that's a more pressing need

I think Wes is going to be a big contributor to the playoff rotation. He's more consistent defensively than Grayson or Donte

we are on a different level when the team makes 3s

watched the first half 3x
we just made shots and they did nothing to slow down G

super happy we kilt Nets and GS
still a little annoyed about both Ls to Char

...do we just PLAY RANDOM all the time now?
never actually run set plays?
read and react only?

Maybe, I don't know... I mean if you have a 4th big who is good enough to play on this team in the playoffs, that's a really good player by definition. Which is as much of a problem as it is a solution, because he'd either have to eat into Gianni's time or sit on the bench most games and watch his value dwindle to nothing, how long before he starts complaining?
3 healthy and good bigs (incl Giannis) is perfect IMO.

Wes will get his minutes, he is playing great defense and he has the best 3p % on the team so far.

Great pickup, a cheap replacement for Tucker, Wes I think plays better offensively while being as good defensively. He is actually better defending perimeter guys

The Bucks are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get.

We could still use another physical defensive minded forward - to cover/bully someone like Durant. But that's about it. I know he's popular, but I wouldn't bet on DDV remaining on the team.

When we shoot our 3s at a high percentage, we win comfortably or more. See the Warriors game. Of course Wes was awesome in defense which made it a blowout.

When we shoot the 3 s poorly, we lose. See the Hornets game.

Reminder - Giannis, Khris and Jrue have only played 19 games together of our 44 so far and we are 16-3 in those games. Most important thing remains making it to the end of the year as healthy as possible. I'd rather be a 4 seed with all of them playing than a 1 seed and be missing one of them.

Don't think this is really true. Of course 3pt% dictates a lot in todays NBA, but this Bucks team has shown to be good at finding ways to win despite not shooting well from 3. Having no PG and lack of effort (channeling jkidd) has much more to do with what happened in Charlotte

Lol, not this again. We just won a championship while shooting like, one of the lowest postseason 3PT percentages in the modern era.

Plus, he can dribble and guard bigger players too.

His only weakness is he doesn't deliver a WWE style promo in interviews, and people really buy into someone saying " we dogs", even though this teams has been dogs for years, and PJ himself was a toothless dog.

Wes showing up in such incredible shape is the surprise of the year.
