Tucker did a fanastic job on him, but I agree. Last 2 minutes of the game, Giannis needs to take KD.

yeah i'm not saying the whole game but in the clutch....KD can shoot over anybody but it would help a bit more if you had someone who's 6"11 providing a contest rather than 6"5 Tucker

Hes not some pseudo star like some pretend he is.


Bad shooting nights happen, even for great shooters.
It's not like he took bad shots tonight, they just happened to not drop. You want him taking shots every time.

Nothing is guaranteed. Winning playoff games are hard, winning on the road even harder. Both teams played bad yes but for Brooklyn that was as easy of a game they could have stolen on the road. This one stings a little. The Nets are still without Harden so KD and Kyrie would need some help from their role guys on the road. The team as a whole is new. Would not surprise me to see Bucks have a great shooting game in game 4 with some momentum. Brooklyn is still in great position but anything can happen.

I think we got a 6 game series. If it was a gentlemen's sweep, this would have been the game. Harden's health will determine how far it goes.
The 2010's will be known for NBA collusion just as the 2000's were known for MLB doping.
Glorifying either is glorifying anti-competition.

KD was fouled every single play of the game by Tucker.

His strategy was basically they won't call everything. And then the one time he did he threw a temper tantrum.

Dude is a straight punk. Can't play actual defense.

This is the only kind of game the Bucks can win. If the refs continue to let physical play go, that can really get to KD who uses his frailty as a foul baiting weapon. If Tuckers allowed to be in KD's jersey, the Bucks got a shot

Brown needed to be taken out the last minute or two. Nets needed more spacing as the Bucks were leaving him to swarm KD and Kyrie. He was great the rest the game.

I've never seen Harris shoot so poorly and overall I've never seen the team shoot so poorly.

KD, Irving, Harris were 21-61 and James and Shamet 2-9 off the bench. Play Tyler Johnson, Nash. Hopefully Harden and Green back soon.

Great game tho. Good bounce back by Middleton on offense and Brook on defense. Nets need tests like this and I like the Bucks, so don't mind them taking one. I also may go to game 5 now.

Brown lost his damn mind on that last play but a professional shooter like Harris missing a wide open (almost like he was by himself in the gym) 20 foot jumper at 83-82 Nets lost the game for Brooklyn

What do you think Griffin's doing to Giannis? lol. Refs let a lot go between the 2 teams (even tho i will say Bucks got the favour of that whistle, but it was far from egregious).

That was one heck of an escape job by the Bucks. They looked dead in the water after KD hit that 3 to take the lead. But kudos to them, they fought for that win.

68 combined points for Giannis and Middleton in an 86-point game. That's only something you see in the 90s, wow. You're not gonna win many games like that. The Bucks role players have to step up.

Giannis is the reason why Ben Simmons doesnt shoot 3's

Look at their personnel. No Harden on the floor.


I seriously doubt that Harden is the only guy on that roster capable of running plays. And the Bucks weren't much better, although they did run a few plays after timeouts.

This is on the coaches - Nash and Budenholzer should be ashamed of themselves.
What the **** was their purpose tonight aside from calling timeouts and managing rotations?

You literally saw, in a big moment, the refs let Griffin deck Giannis in the air, to the point where they didnt wanna get embarrassed and review it and be forced to give the Nets the ball. It may be more noticeable because KD is a finesse player and Tucker is stronger than him, but everything tucker is doing to KD, Griffin is also getting away with against Giannis.

You mean plenty of great defense. Amazing how guys look when the other team is actually allowed to get physical.


I wasn’t great defense, it was crappy offense. Nothing but isoball with no ball movement that led to enough bricks to build a new stadium.

You got it backwards. Defense looks better when the other team is chucking up garbage.
