2017 NBA Playoffs: Bucks versus Raptors

There was talk among the analysts in Chicago that Toronto is a mentally soft team. That sure is what they looked like tonight. 

When the Bucks play defense like this, they're tough to beat. They shot well, but it was rhythm. 

Maker is slowly emerging as a force. Giannis is taking his game to another level. But with Middleton playing like he is, again... tough to beat. 

That assist stat jumped out at me in the beginning- and it looks like it jumped out at the Bucks coaches too. They're making Toronto pay for their refusal to move be the ball. And a lot of this is Maker- his energy, his length... he's definitely in their heads. 

But like Kidd said, it's one win. Hold serve on Saturday and they've got a stranglehold on this thing...

Monroe has been an X factor for the Bucks as it doesn't seem like anyone is able to D up with him.   Ibaka is the only guy that seems to be giving Milwaukee trouble but he's not healthy and he can't play every minute of the game.  

Someone said Milwaukee has gotten in their heads and I think that's true because the Raptors really can't play better than they did in Game 2 yet the Bucks almost stole that one. 

Milwaukee is on a roll right now so keep it going for Saturday. 

Was at that game last night.  Was one of the most fun Bucks games I have ever been to.  The crowd was really into it and the team seemed to draw from their energy.

I was a partial season ticket holder this past season and got to see some real duds but last night more than made up for all of them.  It was just a fun and special night to be there.  Hopefully there will be many more like it.

The day after Jabari Parker got hurt, I bought new full season tickets for next year and am really glad I did it now.  I was hesitant at the time, but it seems like from that point forward, things have really come together.

If Maker continues to improve this team can be really good even without Parker.  

Monroe has been a super sub and really like what Delly and Beasley have done.  Even Terry has been a good vet presence. 

Pretty amazing considering they've gotten nothing from Teletovic and Parker is out 

20 plus turnovers, no flow on offense, and some cold as ice shooting is a sure loss. Disappointed with how Toronto is shutting Middleton down, he doesn't appear to have much fight in him.

No Answer for DeRozen. Toronto responded. Bucks turn.

God damn Telly Hughes  sucks !! 

 

Really bull**** effort. Free throw advantage  pretty much tells the story, but complete indifference on the defensive end has reared its head again. Still/ Toronto has gone full 90s Pacers/Knicks/Heat, and they're being allowed to do it. Valenciunis goes WWE on Monroe and no call, then on the other end Valenciunis gets fouled clean and wants to throw hands? Then when Monroe steps in, they both get T'd? Refs are letting Toronto go full thug ball. Bucks need to come home and return the favor. In a large way...

When the Raptors advance and end up playing the Cavs, they won't get any of these calls.
