I'm willing to bet the Nets offense is never that bad again.

It wasn't just the defense. They constantly missed wide open shots they almost always make.

Joe Harris is an interesting player - elite from three but relatively mediocre from anywhere else. That wide open midrange he missed was the game.

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.


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).



Giannis bulldozes his way through griffin and they call the foul on griffin. In the last game two times should have been charges on Giannis they called on griffin. Let’s not

He bricked a bunch of 3s too. Just a baffling performance.

The Bucks ought to give Blake some room on threes as well. He looks pretty hesitant to shoot those.

Any Bucks fans can comment on this? Is your offense normally like that? Iso ball and no ball movement?

That's the only way the Bucks can win this series. Muck the game up a bit. No way they are scoring with the Nets otherwise.

Considering this is the "Real ECF", this game kind of sucked. Bad basketball.

No, and especially not just Khris and Giannis taking turns. Jrue is far more involved normally, Forbes shoots more, Portis shoots more, Brook gets the ball more often...this series has been very frustrating.

I wanna see this team again.

If I am a Bucks fan, I am lowkey optimistic. It's 2-1 with another home game and they've yet to play even a decent game. Doesn't matter how they won tonight. I remember the Raptors needing OT to win game 3 against the Bucks a couple years ago to get their first win and they didn't lose again after.

He's a player who can choke badly under pressure. He's elite from 3 and shoots high % going to the basket, but playoffs take away his driving game, leaving only his shooting. And if he can't make those wide open shots, he's completely worthless.

Bucks could win Game 4 but I'm not convinced they win in Brooklyn. And they need too.

The game by joe was expected honestly. He doesn’t play well on the road. He didn’t shoot well on the road in the Celtics series either. I did say the nets would lose today. Because they were bound to have a lax game. And in the Boston series it was game three also. They didn’t start well at all.

But they won’t miss so many shots next game. Good luck bucks if this was the best they got

On a quick note, Duncan Robinson is definitely better than Joe Harris.

Harris is better on the catch & shoot but coming off of screens, dribble hand-offs, & pretty much every other action, Robinson is a flamethrower.

They are. Had the Bucks lost Game 3, it's an automatic series loss, since no team has ever come back from down 3-0.

With this win, Bucks now have a few paths to regain control:

1. Win three games straight for a 4-2
2. Win two to go up 3-2, lose Game 6, then let Game 7 deal with fate
3. Tie the series to make it a best of 3
4. Go for a 3-1 comeback

In a 3-0 comeback, the team would have had to pray that the opponent throws away Game 4, then attempt a 3-1 comeback.

I'm aware of how playoff series work. They still have to win 3 of 4. Pulling for them regardless, **** the Nets.

Budenholzer fkin sucks. So gross watching Giannis back out to the three point line just to try and get a running start to drive over and over.

The Nets tried to close this game out with their worst players, AND ALMOST WON.


The Bucks shot 39% from 3 for the year.

So far this series, they have shot:

20%, 29.6%, 19.4%

BRK has the advantage, but it is not hard to imagine the 3 point shooting balancing out with a 50% shooting night and a 45% shooting night followed by people wondering how the series changed so quickly.
