What a great game to be at. It was near playoff atmosphere !! 

Never thought it would end up as a beat down.  Bucks were ready and even though they came out ice cold, the defensive intensity was there the whole game....diving for loose balls, protecting the rim, good PnR communication....and Wes especially did a nice job on Kawhi. 

Was a great moment when Giannis responded to the crowd singing Happy Birthday. Place went nuts. Happy Birthday Giannis. Interesting that all 3 MVPs have a birthday this week !!!

The most important part of the win was the way that defended. Itโ€™s one thing to blow a team out shooting uncharacteristically hot or something... itโ€™s a totally different thing to choke them out like a boa constrictor. The message they delivered is that theyโ€™re all completely committed to this, and when locked in defensively they will destroy teams.

It's a long season. The win will get some attention and it wonโ€™t mean anything in June. But this team last year wasnโ€™t sure what they were capable of, but theyโ€™re playing like now they know. Total commitment to the way they play, how they prepare, and to each other. Thatโ€™s what Champions are made of...

I watched most of the first half and their defense was outstanding. 

I didnโ€™t care for some of the fouls they got called for but they were aggressive and challenged shots and forced a lot of turnovers.

From top to bottom I think the Clippers are the best team in the league.  They really do not have any weaknesses.  They can score, defend, go big or small, and they have a very good bench and good coach. 

I donโ€™t understand why theyโ€™ve struggled on the road but come playoff time thatโ€™s not a team I would want to face or try to beat 4 out of 7.  They are the one team that matches up very well with Milwaukee and I think the Bucks know this so they wanted to send a message. 

Iโ€™m glad Milwaukee got them early in the season because I think it will be the Clippers, not the Lakers, that will be the team to beat. 

The other thing thatโ€™s encouraging is teams are now starting to honor Giannis and his outside shooting.  Itโ€™s the next step in his progression.  If he can be a threat with the jumper itโ€™s game over for opponents.

Iโ€™d have to go back and look but basically the Bucks have won 80 of their last 100 regular season games.    Thatโ€™s on par with the Kareem teams back in the early 70s.   

Eventually they are going to lose but 14 in a row in this day and age is impressive.  

Several ways to look at this that are all impressive .

They are 18-1 this year in games that Giannis doesn't foul out. If Giannis is able to play the OT against the Heat or is in against the Jazz, they probably win those games too. The one other game they lost (at Boston) they blew a 16 point halftime lead.

IF Brogdonovich doesnโ€™t hit that buzzer beater I believe we are at 20 straight wins.
