Bruce Brown took BKN's last two shots. Dumb.

Just like Marcus Smart playing hero ball.

A perfect example of a player who had no business taking shots in the clutch.

Bruce Brown was good for 90% of that game.

But that last 10%, he really screwed up.

Bucks win at home. Hope they can build on this for the next one. They gotta keep attacking on both ends.

I gave them one win last game or a couple of games ago. After watching that, I'm doubling down... IT'S OVA! I'll be hoping it isn't until bkn takes 4, but I don't believe Bucks stand a chance. Bkn stole my faith in game one and danced on it for game 2. Bucks eking out game 3 didn't make it any better.

I don't think I'd take any current PG over Mitchell. CP3 maybe but age is against him. Dame I love, but don't want his level of usage and deficiency in defence. Never going to happen but having Mitchell with Tatum, Brown, Smart and Timelord would be bball porn.

EDIT - Curry. Ok I'd probably still take Curry. :D

PG better wake up or he'll be the headline for all the wrong reasons again. Gonna start calling him Playoff E (for exit)!

I was thinking that Giannis is a true regular season Superstar because he puts up huge numbers, and yet, has no GO-TO game for the playoffs. So does that make him the GOAT 2nd option?? but definitely not a 1st option.

Other great 2nd options that comes to mind. In no order. Magic (yes he hardly ever was a Go-To player) McHale, Pippen.

Oh and middleton and jrue are very limited.

Yianis is a beast but one dimensional in offence

If His teammates can’t shoot he becomes obsolete because the opponent can just build a wall around the basket and bait him.

Bucks shot the ball horribly in first 2 games I think.

Pair yiannis with the currys of this world and things happen.

PG or not (he isn't technically), the kid has been extremely good last 2 playoffs. There are other guards I would take over him but I get the praise he is receiving.


The kids are owning the league! That's a good thing. I really hope one of the young guys gets his first ring because it will feel like a changing of the guard, the bonus is it takes BKN out of it. I will take Philly over them too because Philly never beat us, they aren't a rival. I have other issues with Philly players that make me not want them over most of the other teams left.

Tough watching Thybulle play well, while we're stuck with Grant and Edwards. Ugh.

I hear ya. Doc had and has him as a key rotation piece all season. He's long, active and produces. We couldve and should've done the same with Nesmith as we did with Pritch.

CP3 is going back to the conference finals.

I predicted a Sixers vs. Jazz finals.

That could be one of the most boring finals ever.

A Sixers vs. Suns finals would be more exciting.

Sixers is one of the most boring teams to watch. I’m sick of Embiid’s constant flopping and foul baiting tactics. Nets vs Suns would be a good series. Nets vs Jazz could be ok. I like the all winning no nonsense mentality of Mitchell.
