    I have more Kawhi than ABC, I think Powell and Gasol bounce back, and Brogdon hits 40 DK points again.

    I think Toronto probably blows the Bucks out so you may want some deep bench guys from both teams.

    Whatever happens, Drake needs to be chained to his chair. Dude is out of control.

    I think the Bucks have a real shot at winning tonight. On a side note, Nurse has done a great job coaching and making adjustments. The Bucks have to up the pace and then some. Fast fast fast. Bledsoe excels at a high pace and ABC cannot be stopped. Opens up the lanes and they can’t double and triple him. On the flip side, I don’t know how they can stop Leonard.

    Bucks have been exposed in half court offense. Series changed when they found one of the few guys on the planet that can guard Giannis (Kawhi). For Bucks to win they will have to pick up the pace, make some threes, hit their free throws, and have at least a neutral whistle.

    I agree and I don’t think any of that is out of the question. I’m calling for a bucks upset. Perhaps, I am a fool. Brogdan is the x Factor.

    If ABC plays 40 mins, whats his most likely score on dK?

    Lol. Anyone’s guess. His floor is still very very good. Imho, it’s awful hard to fade him or Leonard. If you do and one stumbles you will be way ahead of the field. Vice versa.

    agreed. I think they should call a technical on the Raptors every time he gets on the court or steps out of his space.

    as for tonight’s game, it’s a real coin flip

    I’m hoping you’re right as I just made a pretty sizable bet on the Raptors.

    ya know u can make a pretty darn good lineup if u fade Giannis..just sayin

    Same if You fade Leonard.

  • SkateFiend

    I don’t understand why Khris Middleton and Lopez can’t both have a great game and provide an edge when Greek Freak reaches his floor. Capella did nothing in the Rockets last two games and Gordon fizzled out in the elimination game.

    Leonard can match ABC in terms of production. Other people have to step up.

    Some of these guys seem to have forgotten how to attack a zone, or maybe they never learned (I guess there’s something to be said for spending a year or two in college ball). Giannis trying to drive to the hoop against that 1-2-2 is a disaster. You get the ball to the high post and make the pass from there—if you wait till you’re in the air underneath the basket all passing lanes are closed.

    All credit to Nurse for realizing that would work; I’d never have thought of it.

    I’m playing them both and leaving a lot of salary on the table. That can’t be right, but it’s what I keep coming up with.

    I have ABC in 50% of my LU.

    His per36 is directly inverse to Nurse’s ability to limit ABC’s dK pts

  • samuri8

    Last card coach Bud has left to play is running his starters to death, which he should have done in game 5. The starters were crushing and only played 15 minutes together.

    Agreed, I’m not touching their bench tonight. I can see why he didn’t do it in game 5—he probably can only get away with doing it once, and I think the road game’s the best choice.

  • efagan99

    What are thoughts on the bucks guards? Will bledsoe keep getting minutes or will Bud let hill play more? I’m assuming Brogdon will start and see 35-40 minutes in a close game.

  • tmarohl

    I put Snell in a couple, as they might try to put him on Kawhi for a few minutes.

    Bledsoe production is near regular season output with MIL starting five lineup

    Only problem is hes is not getting long stretches of minutes hence the reason is minutes are down
