Followed by pathetic half-court execution.
Two fouls on Giannis. Harden is getting every call. Every single one.
Now we are one offensive foul against Giannis from having him sit for awhile.
You have to get Giannis off of Harden. Why is he guarding him?
The Bucks are doing a tremendous job keeping the Nets in it just enough to force them to play their stars.
Blake Griffin flops on a screen call and they review it or a flagrant? Why are they even talking about this?
Obviously the refs have an interest in this game. The calls in the 2Q have been a fucking joke.
That being said, someone needs to tell Holiday to stop shooting jumpers
Ugh……not watching on tv just on my iPad…..ya know, like I’m watching the Crew on my iPad as well…….5 - 0 Colorado??? Really?? Ok that’s it, I’m done watching them both.
Besides Middleton, the Bucks are 1 for 13 from 3. Giannis has wisely not taken any.
The Bucks are getting nothing from their bench.
Why are Portis and Teague not playing? Bud is a goddamn moron. Those guys can help.
If them losing this game means Bud is gone well, I’m OK with it because he has no idea what he’s doing and is wasting the talent on this team.
This game feels a lot like Tuesdays.
I will say that I like Middleton’s demeanor tonight. All business, active, confident… that’s how stars play when it matters…
The Nets are right to want to take Middleton out of games. When he gets going, the Bucks go on big runs. But Middleton needs to avoid iso- it’s not his game. Just catch, make a move, stroke. That’s his midrange game. Then catch and shoot outside.
Play defense FFS…
Bucks offense starting to seize up again in the second half.
Keep defending… defense feeds offense.
Holiday 1 of 8 from 3.
I don’t get it… Holiday on Durant…
For crying out loud, ever think of doubling Durant? He’s taking his sweet-ass time on all those isolations.
Other than Middleton the other Bucks are 2 for 19 from 3.
Wasn't this year's team supposed to be more equipped to hit those 3s in the playoffs? Of course, Bobby Portis can't hit shots from his seat on the bench.
Just a lot of stupid, panicked basketball being played. Shots stop falling for Middleton and the whole thing crumbles, including their approach.
I thought Holliday was supposed to be playoff clutch. He’s worse than Bledsoe.
Jrue Holiday has been terrible. He keeps bricking open 3s and had a terrible closeout on Harden there to get this to a 5 point game.
He's been a downgrade from Bledsoe for this series. And we owe him max money for 4 more years?
Holy shit… they’re completely falling apart again.
Big 2 quarters for Middleton
It's nice to see ball movement but nobody other than Middleton can make a shot.
Is there a bigger flopper than hardon? JFC.....
Bucks are 25 for 48 from inside the arc and other than Middleton (4 for 7) are 2 for 20 from 3.
So, the 4th quarter will probably devolve into a bunch of Connaughton, Lopez, Holiday, and Giannis 3s.
