    Unsurprisingly, the other dude besides Wright brings up last year and the last two games against Oakland, that we had 2 chances to close out the series and didn’t, and fails to mention not having our second star, Chris Paul. Things like that really irritate me and it happens over and over again. Nice take by Wright, however.

    I think we stomp the warriors but after the jazz showed the Bucks defense to some success I fear the Bucks might ruin our year.

    I hope James is practicing that floater against someone tall trying to swat the shot with a broom.

    There isn't anybody team left in the Western Conference to bother Harden like those two shot blockers from Ut

    I know I'm talking about the finals against Milwaukee

    If we beat the warriors but don't win the title then it doesn't mean anything

    I can’t speak to that, but he shouldn’t be doing these takes if he can’t do a better job.

    The last sentence is the most important: "The Rockets' defense was as good as it had been all year long in these five games against Utah."

    Actually the Jazz abandoned it to a large degree and instead went to doubling up high and letting Gobert sit under the basket and foul. The refs just never called it. The Bucks version had Bledsoe directly face Harden from his left side at all times and not veer. It was a gimmick that did not work and Harden torched them for over 40. If Harden has an off night and they are allowed to foul him most schemes look good. The Bucks also have longer defenders than the Jazz.

    The key for Harden is to stay patient and creating with good decisions to keep the team involved.

    Gsw has better individual primary defenders in Klay and Iggy but Green doesn’t have the length and Bogut doesn’t have the mobility.

    The more worrisome thing is no freethrows.
    Those are the backup to a poor shooting night and increases his efficiency and Utah did the best ever on that.
