    I agree. Just a freak thing. The ref was out of bounds not like he was right near Young. Hopefully the Bucks can cruise to a G4 win and close the deal in 5.

    So it's starting to sound like Dame wants out of Portland. He and Giannis are buddies, so we should discuss our best trade package for Dame. Obviously it would have to start with Middleton and we don't have any decent tradeable draft picks. I'm sure our best package would not compare to what others can offer, but the Giannis connection makes it worth discussing.

    I think it's too early for that discussion. Dame is great, but if we win it all this year, no way you can trade Midds plus for him. Midds and giannis are boys too.

    The only hope we have is if Dame demands a trade to a small handful of teams and we're one of them. But I doubt that happens.

    Way too early for that. We can't give up Middleton yet. He's our closer. We can't have Giannis taking free throws at the end of a tight game. This offseason, he has to hire the best free throw specialist on the planet and transform that weakness.

    Wisconsin pro sports are cursed. Giannis likely out for the rest of this series you'd think at the very least. The Bucks are pretty maddening, things opened up for them facing probably one of the easiest teams you will ever face to go to the NBA Finals. So Bud comes out G1 takes nothing away from Trae resorts to drop coverage giving Trae all options. Bucks would have won easily with any adjustment. Jrue and Midd are good enough to win at least one game in a series but winning 2 of 3...not sure. Bucks then come out tonight like Hawks just going to roll over, get smacked in the mouth and suffer the Giannis injury.....Bucks should be going home up 3-1 at the very least and Midd, Jrue would close that out I think. But now, this series is very much in question because the coach and the team have taken a game off each and it's 2-2. F-ing maddening.

    But prayers up to Giannis. That stinks especially if it's a serious injury. Also with GA his game is predicated on explosion and burst as he isn't a good shooter...Damn. Hope he avoided bad injury.

    Also can Bud finally yank Lopez.....he is getting roasted this series.

    They were guessing it could be a hyper extended knee. But who knows. Could be worse and be out for a year and miss all of next season besides the remaining playoffs this year. Could be ACL,MCL and Meniscal tear. This sucks.

    Giannis did walk off on his own though. So hope it's nothing serious.

    Plenty of guys walk off under own power and still serious. But I was surprised he came back to bench but Hawks went 12-2 run and it was over. Hope for GA sake not serious and avoid ACL tear. But with that level of hyperextension I would be stunned if there wasn't some ligament damage or for sure sprained knee. He will be out at the very least the rest of this series imo.

    Sounds like no ligament damage. I still would be fairly surprised if we see him play any time soon, but it sounds like he may have thankfully avoided a massively serious injury.

    Thank goodness. Happy for Giannis. Hopefully someone on this team shows some stones tomorrow night. Need G5. Role player or two need to step up. Forbes barrage would be nice. Portis needs to play and bring energy. Lopez needs to sit a lot more. Then Middleton big game needed with Jrue showing G1, G2 Jrue.

    That's what's frustrating about them coming out so flat and ******** down their leg in game 4. That's a game they needed the killer instinct and put it away so that even if giannis is out, they still win it and need to win 1 of 3 instead of 3 of 3 without him.

    I don't expect the bucks to win the series without giannis, but it's for sure doable. Like you said they need guys to step up and they need to finally shoot the ball better than 20% from 3 for once.

    No time table for return. Even if he gets a week off for the least amount of time for rest. Then Bucks have to win without him to finish up the Hawks series before we move on to the Suns. Middleton and Holiday will need huge games. Or the Hawks have to go out flat rest of the series. Also feed Brook in the paint for easy dunks all game. Portis and Forbes will have to chip in as well.

    Bucks get killed on the rebounding with no Brook. Sure could use DDV as a rebounder right about now.

    Seriously? Dame is the greatest closer in the game.

    Bucks send Kris Middleton, Jrue Holiday and pick 31 for Damion Lillard, Robert Covington and Norman Powell. Starters - Dame, Powell, Covington, Giannis and Lopez
    Bench - Donte, Pat C, Portis or MLE player...
