GT: Game #52 - Charlotte @ Milwaukee (April 9th) 

Post#1 » by BigSlam » Thu Apr 8, 2021 2:42 pm

It would be amazeballs if we could somehow steal one here.

But how do we do that? Outside of the obvious (don't turn the ball over, hit our FT's and don't let them rain down 3's on us) - what do we need to do/what do we need to stop?

Decent chance Giannis doesn't play so that's a start.

What is? Milwaukee will be on the second night of a back-to-back. They are playing the Mavericks right now in Dallas. Giannis is out tonight.

Maybe if Giannis doesn’t play. Would be a huge bonus if we found a way, but my expectations are this looks like the Boston and Nets games.

It sucks that we have been reduced to hoping the opponent has major players injured too just to even out the odds. I can't wait for the team to get healthy again.

I've been hoping the opponents best players are out for the last 20 years. Literally.

I really hope we keep Biz out of the starting lineup. I have no interest in reliving the clogged toilet offense from many years ago. If that were the case, just go full clog the toilet and sign Michael Kidd-Gilchrist for the rest of the season.

Watching Graham these past few weeks has been really frustrating. I've been a huge supporter and defender of his in the past but it's mind-numbing watching him almost get an 8-second violation every single time he brings the ball up the court. It allows the defense to get settled. And then, since he can't beat anyone off the dribble it requires 215 screens just to get him open, and by the time he's ready to shoot we're down to 2 seconds on the clock.

That's really been the worst part of not having a lamelo and monk in the lineup these past few weeks as we really don't have anyone now other than Terry who can dribble the ball into the paint on a consistent basis, and when Terry does it it's in slow motion.

I'm starting to lose hope in PJ. He will be a solid utility player for many years, but it's starting to look like that's about his ceiling.

A dynasty has posted about over and over, miles would be such a tremendous player if he would just make up his mind to drive the ball to the rim every chance he gets. He should be living at the free throw line.

Giannis and Holiday out opens up an opportunity to steal one as they're also on the second night of a back-to-back. Going 4-2 on this road trip without half of our offensive output would be an outstanding result.

LFG.
