I have a feeling Brooklyn will win.

kdawg7736: I have a feeling Brooklyn will win.


Same, but I'm rooting for the Bucks.  I wish I could root for the Nets' court without rooting for the Nets.

Not an NBA guy but I'm going to have to DVR this one and watch it in the morning, or at least skip ahead to the 4th and hope it is close.

Good Zach Lowe piece.  ESPN+, unfortunately.  But the fourth paragraph is worth the click, if it lets you read that far:

In short, great opportunity for these teams in a wide open postseason.

Nooooo Barkley picks Milwaukee, this is no good...
 
2021-06-19 8:33:28 PM  
Bring the glory, Bucks.

Bring. It. Home.

I'm enjoying actually seeing the game instead of being distracted by cuts and commentary.

How are you watching?

No wonder Harden is 3-1 in Game 7 games. He flops and whines when anybody gets within 3 feet of him and gets a foul called every damn time.
 
2021-06-19 8:53:32 PM  
Tucker just got framed
 
2021-06-19 8:53:43 PM  
So far, these refs are horrible.
 
2021-06-19 8:56:07 PM  
I'm not mad at Brooklyn yelling the time it takes Giannis to take a free throw lol

NBA OT on TNT. on the Firestick.

I can see entire plays and all the bonehead passes.

The Bucks have no respect for Brown's range. They double off him when he is beyond the arc. No defender within miles.

I love that he takes an entire slow ass shot without the ball!

Bucks' littles' job seems to be to be annoying AF.

so just like littles on the playground, even though they are NBA small and therefore much bigger than me
 
2021-06-19 9:02:03 PM  
Hmm. That looked like a backcourt to me.
 
2021-06-19 9:03:06 PM  
That's the worst spot to shoot from righty and KD just kissed it off the glass.

He came right out of the gate looking like a badass.  Wouldn't surprise me if he comes close to 50 again.

"When he puts his head down, the entire defense will collapse." I mean, the dating jokes are pretty obvious
 
2021-06-19 9:20:45 PM  
Griffin traveled, but sure, call the foul on the Bucks.
 
2021-06-19 9:23:43 PM  
Airballed that freethrow?
 
2021-06-19 9:27:20 PM  

medius: Airballed that freethrow?


I don't get how he can be that bad at FTs. I just don't have any idea at all.
 
2021-06-19 9:31:39 PM  
Unpopular opinion: The Brooklyn fans counting is kinda corny.
 
2021-06-19 9:32:09 PM  
I think the FT countdown really is bothering Giannis.
 
2021-06-19 9:34:14 PM  

JerseyTim: Unpopular opinion: The Brooklyn fans counting is kinda corny.


They also don't know how long a second is.
 
2021-06-19 9:36:03 PM  
Dammit. On the finger tips.

:(

He's a big that's strength is driving to the basket and getting dunks? He's not a shooter.

Has it ever occurred to you that they're doing that intentionally to screw up Giannis' perception of time?  Their successful effort is what caused him to release the ball late at the end of the half!  Noted Nets' fan:

"This game takes all that you've got, and gives back even more."

So even if the Nets win, I'll replenish my kid's college fund eventually.
 
2021-06-19 9:50:36 PM  
So, either Portis is injured horribly, or for some reason has requested not to play.

I don't get his absence. At all.

TheJoe03: He's a big that's strength is driving to the basket and getting dunks? He's not a shooter.


Yes, but he can routinely hit midrange jumpers too.

My comment goes for all players with FT struggles though. Shaq etc. How do they not get better with practice? It's just odd.
 
2021-06-19 9:58:28 PM  
So it's Brooklyn's time to choke.

A lot of it is mental for sure. Luka sucks at FTs but can hit step back threes. But still it's like asking why a corner can't catch like a WR, no one is great at every thing, a lot of players are specialized in certain things. It's a huge issue for him but at some point you gotta accept a players weaknesses.

I figured out why I don't like the fans counting: it reminds me of the super corny stuff they pull at places like Cameron Indoor Stadium.
 
2021-06-19 10:03:42 PM  
Stopwatch says....

Fans 13
Actual time 11.1

As a Bucks fan just be happy he actually is sticking around, last time you guys mattered was a Michael Redd.  You have a chance to beat the title favorites, wish my team was in your spot.

No doubt. It was HUGE news when he signed. Which is why so much is expected of this team.

Coach Bud gave him the green light to shoot. Another reason to fire the asshole

He better be gone after this season. No matter what happens. He just has been so inconsistent.

/Rick Carlisle time

Man, poor Holiday.  God he sucks.  And I'm a big fan of his (normal) game

Naido: Man, poor Holiday.  God he sucks.  And I'm a big fan of his (normal) game


Ditto. He's been a major improvement of Bledsoe, and I liked him too. But yikes, Holiday has disappeared in the postseason, especially offensively. *sigh*
 
2021-06-19 10:24:34 PM  
Ok, if a TV cat is called Mittens, it should look like it's wearing mittens.  If it's the same color from neck to paw, call it something else.  Come on, Progressive.

That pass from Middleton, in a game 7 . . . damn

I'm ok with that or Becky Hammond
 
2021-06-19 10:27:04 PM  
You gotta run an offense, Middleton.  You ain't Kobe just yet.
