We need to win tonight. Guys need to step up, KD can't be out here jacking up 30+ shots carrying this team on his back. We need to see the assists rise and the turnovers decrease.

If we are going to play lineups where Kyrie/KD sit then we need mike james on the floor.

Kyrie Hopefully is a bit better and Harris hits his jumper

I've conceeded that jeff green has come back to earth from three. but would be nice if he hit some open ones

Dont overeaction to giannis hitting threes. dare him to shoot threes again

James needs to run the second unit because he can get into the paint to hit open shooters. We can survive for stretches with KD and Kyrie off the floor since most likely we'll have a line up with 4 shooters out there, but the ball has to move around for it to work, we can't have Landry Shamet or Jeff going ISO. Let James break down Jeff Teague and hit the perimeter guys for clean looks.

This is a great playoff preview, not only in matchup but also in approach. Throughout the regular season, you usually face someone new every night. Tonight, we've seen what they want to do, and they've seen what we want to do. At this point, coaching adjustments both before the game and in it will decide much of this rubber match. Btw, there's a seeding tiebreaker up for grabs, in case we end with the same regular season record. Too much at stake not to empty the tank.

The Bucks will be better tonight than they were Sunday. There was some truth to the perceived officiating bias, BUT at the end of the day, Milwaukee only had 12 free throws, and only converted 6 of them. Expect them to nail at least double that this time around. Will we be not only better, but better enough to overcome their adjustments? I have high hopes. Go Brooklyn!

Since sunset is 8:57p EST/7:57 CST, Kyrie should be able to at least drink water around or just after halftime.

The team is way too amped up and not playing well. I like the defense but our offense is just out of whack.

Jrue having one of those hot shooting nights. Nets need to take him out of his rhythm or he'll go off for 30+ tonight.

Man, I know Durant can go through slumps just like anyone else, but when he's hitting his jumper, there's really no defense for him other than hoping he misses. Maybe Giannis can keep up with him and actually bother his shot with his length and leaping ability, but that would tire him out if he had to chase him around the whole time.

If the Nets move the ball, we will score at will on them.

KD is outrageous but we need to sneak him some rest this half.
