Found this interesting for all the talk of the Bucks struggles here…

But also shows how terrible their bench has been

Bucks have the tiebreaker on the Knicks. Cavs have the tiebreaker on the Bucks. Not sure what happens if they all tie
TAMU

I do know, Newsie is right on you knowing ball.

It’s unbelievable it’s come down to this for the Bucks.  So many losses to bad teams.  The 2nd seed should have been wrapped up with a bow on it easily by now.

Meh. Could work out better anyway if they’re the 4. If they lose tomorrow and the Cavs and Knicks win, the 2 seed ends up with either the Heat or Sixers. Even 3 ends up with the Pacers. If the Bucks are the 4 they get the Magic.

Yeah you play the C’s a round earlier than you could. But you’ll probably have to beat them to make the Finals anyway. And I think the Bucks match up okay with the C’s. Yes the C’s are better. But the Bucks have blown them out twice and nearly made huge comebacks twice. The C’s get into iso ball and Tatum cries about the physicality come Playoff time.

I don’t know if I agree, but am open to your points. 

Aren’t the Magic a potentially dangerous team though too?  A lot of young talent.  Maybe not ready yet to win series?

Only 17 assists (to go with 28 points, 11 rebounds and 5 steals) for LeBron. Someday, he’s gonna be pretty good.

Yeah, but how many of them were easy assists and easy rebounds?

Great call by the Clippers announcers as Houston's wacky Boban Marjanović intentionally missed a free throw to help fans get free chicken sandwiches.

As I look at the playoffs do you think the Lakers throw the 7/8 play-in game?  They don't want Denver/Jokic.

Greeny asked this today on his show. Possibly the dumbest question I have heard from him, and that's saying something. You don't purposefully throw yourself into an elimination game.You're probably going to have to face Denver eventually. You should face them when your old players (AD and Lebron) are fresh.

I guess it's not worth the risk.

Is Giannis out?  The Bucks have big probs.

Zion in a nut shell

Absolute menace taking a game over strictly in the paint at 6'7

But the injury was ineveitable. Came with 3 min left and tie game. Brutal

Sacramento is throttling the Dubs.  Not exactly a good performance by Klay.

Klay’s done. He’s been done for awhile. The magic isn’t going to be recreated with this group. Rebuild around Steph.

I agree with this, although building around a 36-year-old with a lot of mileage on his engine has its own downside.

I usually don't feel bad for Duke guys (he spend like 6 months there), but last night and his career have been brutal. They were going to win that game if he doesn't get injured. He was the best player on the court. Sad story.

Klay isn't retiring.  Will they re-sign him?  Wiggins is also a major problem.  The guy has disappeared after being an all-star 2 yrs ago.  As far as Curry is concerned he needs to be off the ball way more.  They need to find another creator.

Meh.  He's got more money than people can imagine.  And he can't keep his weight in check despite having every possible resource at his disposal.

Your right. I guess I like watching him as he is a unique talent. As I said before, he was the best player in the game. The Lakers had no answer for him.
