Cavs crappy defense and Bucks wanted this bad. GG

The Cavs bench is a serious equalizer. My God that was an impressive comeback by them.

Side note, did Middleton really just intentionally miss a FT up 3? Does he realize that the game is over if he makes it, and if not it's the exact same result as an intentional miss anyway (without the greater chance of an airball and an out of bounds to Cleveland)? That's one of the dumber things I've seen in a minute.

He played over 40 minutes in their OT loss last week. We may never see him on the court again.

Man Wade was going off and then didn't touch the ball the last 4 minutes. Just needed one of those Korver 3s to go in.

Wade is shooting 40% from 3 on the year....

sorry guys. team mods decided to put me on a minutes restrictions.

Bucks 1 and 1 vs inferior teams the past two games. That rocket loss stings becase Harden is such an actor and gets every single call.

Watching the game was the epitome of the pussification of the NBA. Lean into player, shoot, doesn't get touched- foul. Giannis leans in, shoot, doesn't get touched- no foul.

And same **** last night against an inferior team. Reffs and poor coaching let em back into the game.


Watching the past two games reminded me why I hated the NBA growing up. Until we got Giannis I would casually go to games and not care what happened. Since we got a top 3 player via the back end of the lottery, I see through the rigged NBA. But hey, I'm fine with it as we got a new arena and ain't going to seattle any time soon

You all will probably be a first round exit.

we gonna get jabari back, doe. And you guys get IT back. so its equal. I mean edge to IT. but neither play defense. so it is what it is.

It's a pretty big edge towards IT. Jabari is good but idk if he'll hold up. Cavs are far better as it is though.

But he literally plays no defense. Which is what they need.

Neither does Calderon and they've won 18 of their last 20. The defense has definitely picked up since the start. I think more than anything they just need another scorer in that starting lineup that can get hot and create his own shot next to LeBron.

I do wonder how the "new" officiating will effect IT and his first step/carry/travel move.

I see IT close to 5vs5 practices. How's he doing though? Haven't seen any videos of him moving around. Heck Bucks been showing videos of Parker like 3 months ago running around and shooting and dunking. Also a quick question for MAVS fans here. I see Withey got waived. Is he injured? I was hoping Bucks pick him up. Withey is one of them centers on my cheap wishlist.

He may have to take 2 dribbles now to go the length of the court instead of just 1 lol.

What if IT sucks?

Then the finals gets pretty boring. I think he'll be fine though. Probably a rough start.

Yeah, I'm not sure how people aren't seeing that IT > Calderon. The offensive gap is so much bigger than the defensive one (if there even is one).

You literally can't really go wrong with substituting IT for Calderon.

That's incredible. This guy is the head coach of one of the best young teams (talent wise, though disappointing in record) in the NBA. At least his team is about to carry them to the playoffs, at which point he will be put in too much of a spotlight (and likely lose his team games) not to be fired. Only thing Giannis and the rest of Milwaukee can hope for.
