I hope our boys took an extra long nap today. They are going to need it vs. Giannis and company. Who guards Giannis here? Have to think Noel is his best matchup.

I felt like tonight was an absolute "scheduled" loss, but losing by 40? Ouch. This is bad.

Just how good are the Mavs? I know this is the worst possible time to say this, but I still think they're third in the pecking order of teams I'd pick to win the championship behind the Lakers and Clippers.

But maybe I should change my stance? I mean they're on pace for 70 wins and they're killing everyone they play right now. They just beat the Pacers by 40 a few nights ago and they're about to do the same to us.

You mean the Bucks? The Bucks are the favorite to win it, in my opinion.

Yes, sorry. I was watching the Mavs/Heat game while I was making that post.

I think it's Bucks/Lakers. Clippers are going to flame out hard imo

47 point loss.

Is that the worst loss in franchise history? It has to be close if not.

It ties for second if we are counting the Supersonic's days. First, if not.

Yeah, I thought it might be our worst loss since the franchise moved to OKC. But I figured there might be at least one or two other times the franchise had a worse loss if you included the Sonics days.

With the way these teams are shooting so many threes these days and with the occasional game you always get where 1 team can't miss and the other team can't throw it in the ocean, stuff like these extremely lopsided results are going to happen from time to time. Actually makes it easier to just flush it and move on to the next one.

Its still just 1 game.
My eyes glaze over when reading alternative stat (not advanced stat) narratives that go many paragraphs long. If you can not make your point in 2 paragraphs it may not be a great point. :D

Should have went full Popovich and rest all starters.

Scheduled loss anyway, move on.

I think that's just an exceptionally bad matchup for us. Especially if Gallo is not playing. We just don't have anyone even close to handling giannis and the rest of their big guards/wings.

51-8 is unreal. What a run they are on.

I hope they win it all. I’ve got no reason to not want Milwaukee to succeed.

If not OKC I'm with you just because I like to see teams who havent won (in a long time) get their chance.

Any word on why Bazley hasn’t been playing?

Edit: Nevermind. I see he’s been out with a bone bruise.

As mentioned earlier, I agree that we should have pulled a Popovich and rested starters. I mean, why not? What benefit is there to playing your starters against MKE in MKE?
