Absolutely a horrendous game overall, but happy to see the Bucks get it.

Budenholzer has really done an awful job. This shouldn't have been close if the Bucks fix up some major holes but the Bucks just look lost out there.

They were lucky the Nets didn't get hot.

If Giannis could shoot 40% from 3 on volume and I was on the other team I might just shake his hand at the tip and walk off the court.

But next regular season whoever the Bucks coach is needs to embarrass him the first time he does that. Immediate benching. Avery Johnson did this to Dirk when Dirk was mailing in defense and it was one of the best things that ever happened to Dirk. Some games he'd play 90 seconds and get pulled. But Avery let him know he meant it that you have to play defense even as you carry the offense.

The Bucks have to let him know you kill us every time you do that. Even when you make it.

The Bucks did not deserve to win that game. That is the worst display of offense I've seen in I don't know how long. If you hold Brooklyn to that low of a score, you should be winning by 20. The Bucks had no movement, just standing and watching the guy with the ball jack up a horrible shot or drive into multiple defenders. This is on Budenholzer.

I don't complain about refs all that often, but the officiating right now is making this game unwatchable. Constant soft ticky-tack foul calls and a clear bias in favor of Utah.

Cousins trying to score over Gobert is hilarious

I used to give the Cavs grief for LeBron ball but if this is what a Ty Lue offense is then I have to retract some of my criticisms.

Doc Rivers even with no Rondo/CP3 is miles better than this.
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.

Too many players today are just reaching game breaking levels with their off dribble 3 pt shooting.

Unreal how bad he's been so far.

Now THAT'S the Gobert I'm talking about. He's been active as a cutter. Half a dozen plays like that make a big difference.

Morris is setting awful screens that are doing nothing to free up Kawhi.

Congrats, Jazz fans. The Clippers will never make the conference finals in my lifetime. I think I should just consider getting to the second round as a "championship" for this team.

Clippers missed SO MANY wide open threes.

It's amazing to me how they blow these games.

Cursed franchise.

Kawhi afraid of taking it to Bojan. Utah 3 point barrage. Game.

Not sure what Clips can fix from here. Utah looks better, and Mitchell's having anything he wants.

Gonna rec it again, but I missed the early game and from all that I'm reading trying to catch up on it from Mo Dakhil's twitch stream postgame tonight. If anyone is a night owl and wants a more in depth breakdown would recommmend highly.
